We are offering COVID-19 PCR travel tests with medical certificate for international travel. These swab tests of the nose or throat can be self-administered. The test is mailed to your home or office and once completed you send the test back to the lab for analysis. Although a prepaid envelope is provided we recommend using a same or next day courier service for quicker turnaround of results. These are typically published within 2 business days.
The nose/ throat swab test is done via Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) which is the current gold standard method for detecting the virus (SARS-CoV-2) that causes COVID-19. This is similar to the test currently used by the NHS and is accepted internationally. The test kit can be sent directly to your home or office and you will not need to have contact with anyone else while you perform the test. This test includes an official medical certificate confirming negative result required for international travel.

*Please note that COVID-19 is a notifiable disease and a positive test result will be notified to Public Health England.
PCR tests are used to detect the presence of viral RNA, rather than the presence of the body’s immune response, or antibodies. By detecting viral RNA, which will be present in the body before antibodies form or symptoms of the disease are present, the tests can tell whether or not someone has the virus very early on.
Your throat swab test kit and instructions are posted directly to you, and there is no need to visit a collection centre.
Mail your sample back to the lab using the prepaid envelope and packaging.
Your results will be published in your healthily dashboard within 2 business days.
