Covid-19 is a communicable (infectious) disease and can be passed onto other people even more easily when in confined spaces (such as planes). It is imperative that you follow medical guidance to ensure that you don't pass the virus onto others when travelling or returning back. This is still the case if you have been vaccinated - especially due to the emergence of new variants

Air travel, in particular, can be dangerous when suffering from a respiratory illness such as Covid-19 because of the drop in oxygen that occurs at altitude. It is imperative that you don't have any symptoms of a respiratory infection before you fly. You will be asked a series of questions upon registering your kit to ensure you are not suffering from any of these type of symptoms.

We will deliver your test kit 5 days after your arrival in England via Royal Mail (standard delivery), in accordance with government guidelines.

You will get your results and certificate 24 hours after the lab receives your swab sample.

Positive The Covid-19 virus has been detected on your swab. You will not be able to travel or reduce your quarantine time and we will inform NHS Public Health about your positive result. Medicspot will provide you with a free private doctor consultation if you test positive.

Inconclusive/Needs Repeated Very infrequently, your swab result will need to be repeated. This is often due to poor sample taking technique. You will need to purchase another swab kit.
