Covid-19 Testing: Overview

Find everything you need to know about Covid-19 testing with D&A Screening

Fit to Fly Test

What is a fit to fly Covid-19 test for travel?

A fit to fly certificate is a medical certificate signed by a doctor. The certificate will show that you are fit to fly, with no symptoms of Covid-19 and a low risk of spreading coronavirus to other people in the country you intend to fly to.

In order for us to provide you with a fit to fly certificate for travel, you are required to undergo either a Covid-19 PCR (polymerase chain reaction) or antigen (lateral flow) test. PCR tests work by detecting the genetic material in the virus called RNA and require a swab sample to be sent to a laboratory for the results to be processed. Antigen tests look for proteins created by the virus and can be taken at home using a pregnancy-style test, giving results in minutes.

Many countries require PCR tests for travel, however, the type of test required will depend on the destination or territory you are travelling to. A rapid antigen test is accepted for use as your required test to enter the UK.

Where can I get a PCR travel Covid test near me?

D&A Screening offers private PCR tests for travel complete with a certified fit to fly certificate. You can order your PCR tests online for same-day collection at a local Covid test hub or you can choose to have a test kit delivered to you. We’ll send a simple swab test for you to perform at home. Drop your sample off at one of 100+ Guaranteed Covid test hubs by 2pm for next-day results by 11:59pm.

If you test negative for Covid-19, we can provide you with a certified Covid-19 fit to fly medical certificate signed by a UK General Medical Council (GMC) doctor. Please note that we can only issue a fit to fly letter from GP if you test negative for Covid-19.

Is the fit to fly certificate guaranteed to be accepted by all airlines?

Our Covid-19 swab tests are fully certified and accredited by UKAS and PHE, ensuring your test results will be accepted by your airline and embassy.

Pre-Departure Testing

Do I have to take a pre-departure Covid-19 test before I travel?

Yes, you are required to show proof of a negative Covid-19 test result taken 3 days before you depart to England.

How soon should I take the test before I travel?

You must take your test within the 3 days prior to departure. For example, if you’re travelling to England on Thursday, you must take your test on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday before departure.

What happens if I don’t take a pre-departure test?

If you fail to show evidence of a negative Covid-19 test result, you may not be able to travel to the UK. If you arrive in the UK without proof of a negative test result, you may be fined. Please see the government website for more information.

Can I use an NHS Covid-19 test to travel abroad?

NHS Covid-19 tests are currently not accepted for international travel. If you’re travelling abroad from the UK, you must book a Covid-19 test with a private service provider like Medicspot. We recommend that you check with the destination and airline you’re travelling with prior to booking a test as testing requirements and timeframes vary.

Travel Test Package (Day 2 and 8 Testing)

What is a Covid-19 travel test package?

Everyone entering the UK needs a Day 2 test after international travel. You’re required to perform a test on or before day 2 for variant surveillance. If you are arriving from an amber list country and you are not fully vaccinated with an recognised vaccine in the UK, EU or USA, you will also need to take another test on Day 8 of your quarantine.

How much does the travel test package cost?

Arrivals from green list countries can purchase our Day 2 Only test for £99. Arrivals from amber list countries can purchase our Day 2 and Day 8 tests for only £198. You can order your green list or amber list travel test package through our website.

What happens if I don’t take the test?

The tests are mandatory. If you do not take the tests, you may face a penalty of up to £2,000. Please see the government website for the latest information.

Test to Release

What is the Test to Release scheme?

If you arrive in England from somewhere outside the UK, Ireland, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man you must quarantine for 10 days on arrival. Under the Test to Release scheme you can choose to pay for a private COVID-19 test with a provider like Medicspot as you cannot use tests provided by NHS Test & Trace under this scheme. If the result is negative, you can end your self-isolation period. Please note that you cannot take a test until you have been in England for 5 full days.

How can I take part in the scheme?

You can book in your test with a government-listed private test provider like D&A Screening or you can choose to opt in to the scheme on the government’s passenger locator form.

Is the Test to Release scheme mandatory?

No, Test to Release is voluntary. If you choose not to take part in the Test to Releaser scheme you must self isolate for 10 days upon return from a country not on the travel corridor list.
