Other Frequently Asked Questions
What is a COVID-19 PCR Test?
A COVID-19 PCR Test (polymerase chain reaction) is used to check if you have COVID-19, even if you don’t have symptoms. This is the same test carried out by the NHS and COVID-19 testing centres.
A COVID PCR Test is done by inserting a swab into the nose and the back of the throat to collect respiratory materials. The swab will then be sent to a UKAS accredited laboratory for analysis.
Why do I need a Fit to Fly Certificate?
A COVID-19 Fit to Fly covid certificate is required by some countries before you travel to prevent the spread of Coronavirus. This document confirms that you have had a PCR test with an accredited provider and that you tested negative. You will not be allowed to travel if you test positive, and some countries may still require you to isolate on arrival, regardless of a negative Fit to Fly covid test result.
What Happens if my Fit to Fly PCR Test Comes Back Positive?
If your PCR test returns positive, you’ll be offered a free GP consultation with Your Private Health, enabling you to ask any questions and address any concerns you may have.
