If you need a test and ‘Fit to Fly’ certificate in order to travel, then you can pick up a test kit from the pharmacy to take the test at home.
The test will detect the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus which causes Covid-19. The test can advise whether you are currently infected with the virus.
The test kit contains a self-swab and a pre-paid special delivery envelope to guarantee delivery to the laboratory before 1pm next day.
Your results will be processed within 24 hours from the date your sample is received by the lab. You will be notified by email when your report is ready. Your ‘fit to fly’ certificate is emailed out to you too if you require one.
This test is only for those without symptoms of Covid-19. If you do have symptoms of Covid-19 then you need to request a test from the government website.
