On arrival to UK you are required to do MANDATORY SARS Covid-19 Testing on Day 2 and Day 8


There are 2 main types of test to check if you have coronavirus at the time of the test

  1. Polymerase Chain Reaction or PCR which detects the genetic material (RNA) of the virus in the sample.
  2. Lateral Flow Device or LFD tests which detect proteins called ‘antigens’ produced by the virus.

Both these tests are done with a viral swab that looks for the presence of the corona virus. The swab can be taken from your nose and throat or just from your nose, depending on the type of test required.

PLAN AHEAD and ENSURE you choose the RIGHT TEST at the RIGHT TIME for your individual travel needs.

Lateral flow device (LFD)

LFD testing is a fast and simple way to test people who do not have symptoms of COVID-19 and are required by some countries on entry. The LFD is done in clinic and the results are available within 30 minutes. When the test is Negative we will issue you with the appropriate certification for your particular travel needs. Please note the test may be inconclusive or positive.

Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)

is referred to as the Gold Standard of Testing. It does take longer to get the result, up to 24 hours because the sample is processed by our Laboratory partners. This is the test required to be taken up to 24,72 or 96 hours before International Travel and a negative test will ensure that you will be issued with a Fit to Fly or Fit To Travel Certificate. Please note the test may be inconclusive or positive.

PLAN AHEAD and Check the ENTRY and EXIT requirements and the regulations for the country you intend to travel to and from as these can change overnight.

Corona Virus is a novel virus, that means it is new to us all, therefore the ability to test and the methods we use are also new. There are some exciting developments on testing and the vaccine response leads us to believe that we will be able to return to some kind of normal again in the not too distant future, maybe even travel overseas for a holiday, but for now we must follow the rules and there are specific requirements for testing when it comes to work and travel See the current Foreign Travel Advice published by HMG.Please be aware that no test is 100% accurate. Whether it is a LFD or PCR test there are false negatives and positives reported and any test is only as good as the person taking it and reporting it.

What Should I Do When I Get My Test Result?

If your coronavirus test is a NEGATIVE test result from either test - you did not have coronavirus at the time the test was taken. You must continue to follow the guidance on social distancing and staying safe when outside of your home. If you were self-isolating as an International Arrival and your PCR was taken on Day 5 using the optional Test To Release scheme, you may now stop self-isolation. If your PCR test was taken prior to International Travel we will then issue you with a Fit to Travel or Fly Certificate.

If your coronavirus test is a POSITIVE test result from either test - then it means it is likely that you had coronavirus when the test was done. You and anyone you live with must self-isolate immediately, you cannot travel and will be unable to access the Day 5 optional Test to Release scheme. You will be contacted by the NHS Track and Trace teams.

We advise that a Positive Test Result from a lateral flow device should be followed up with a confirmatory PCR Test

If your coronavirus test result is an UNCLEAR test result from either test - then it is not possible to say if you had the virus when the test was done. You must, by law, continue self-isolating for the remainder of your self-isolation period as an international arrival travelling to the UK from a non-exempt country, territory or region. You may be contacted to check that you are self-isolating.I f you want to shorten your self-isolation period you will need to take another test as an international arrival.

If you have symptoms of COVID-19, a high temperature, a new and persistent cough or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste, however mild, you should self-isolate for at least 10 days from when your symptoms started. You should also get a test straight away through NHS Test and Trace.
