About our Fit To Fly Test
Why do I need a PCR Travel certificate?
In order to control the spread of coronavirus throughout the world, many countries and airlines require tourists to prove that they are not carrying the virus when travelling. This is done by taking a PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) Swab Test from the deep throat and nose to detect the presence of the actual coronavirus.
These tests have to be processed by an UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) approved laboratory for them to be considered valid by the destination country. These laboratories are also used by the NHS and Public Health England.
Once the results are processed, Dr Bani will issue a signed medical fitness to fly certificate and a laboratory result which is valid for travel. To date, we have had NO traveller refused travel based on our tests or certificate.
When should I book the COVID-19 PCR test before my flight?
The time of booking varies and is dependent on the country of travel or airline. It commonly varies from 48 to 96 hours prior to departure. All travellers are strongly advised to check with the appropriate countries travel information as well as airline guidance to ensure that they are compliant.
