Our processes have been specially designed by our doctors to ensure that you receive complete peace of mind before you travel. This is important to not only satisfy the requirements of travel but also to put your mind at ease so you don’t unwittingly pass on Covid-19 to your fellow travellers.

Your return swab kit is tracked through the post or courier to ensure that the lab receives the sample as quickly as possible so you can satisfy the travel requirements of your airline and destination. You will receive the sample pack by the next day if you place your order before 3pm and you will then normally receive your Covid-19 fit to fly certificate within 72 hours of you returning the sample back to our lab (48 hours for our express service). Please note that we cannot guarantee any delivery times which may be impacted due to factors outwith our control.

When to take your swab sample

Airlines and destinations often require your swab sample to be taken within a particular time window of your flight. It is very important that you identify the correct time window for your flight/destination and then return the swab correctly so it can be processed in a timely manner.

Test required within 96 hours (4 days) of departing flight

If your flight is on a Wednesday or Thursday, you must select the weekend pickup service. This involves having our courier collect your sample on the weekend so there is no delay in the lab receiving your sample - as would be the case with Royal Mail which does not operate fully on weekends.
