Travel Regulations Affected by COVID-19

Attempting to travel during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is currently ill-advised due to the inherent risks involved with entering other countries and travelling through airports in general. If you are proceeding with holiday plans or considering a trip abroad, it is imperative that you are aware of the latest travel information and that you have consulted the official domestic website of the country you are planning to visit.

There are different regulations being put in place in countries worldwide. For this reason, please be aware that self-isolation may be mandatory upon entering a country depending on these guidelines. It is important that you check the local government’s advice PRIOR to leaving the country. Please check the travel rules and regulations for the country you are entering and then proceed with any necessary Covid-19 PCR testing to obtain a PCR certificate for travelling.

When you will need a COVID-19 PCR certificate for travelling

Are you planning on travelling abroad soon? Upon entering certain countries, it will be mandatory that you provide a recent test as proof that you have not recently tested positive for the COVID-19 virus in the form of a Covid-19 PCR certificate for travel. You may be unable to enter the country without this evidence. We provide Covid-19 PCR tests to prevent people from being refused entry into countries abroad. This service includes Fit to Fly Testing, Day 2 Testing for green countries, Day 2 and Day 8 Testing for amber countries and Test to Release Testing to be performed on the 5th day of your arrival back in the UK to shorten your quarantine period. The COVID-19 PCR certificate for travel is classified as an official document detailing results of a recent swab test and is also referred to as a COVID-19 PCR test. The test itself acts as a detector of whether or not the virus is present in one’s system. The objective of introducing such a document into international travel is to decrease the prevalence of the COVID-19 virus, by stopping the spread at countries’ borders. Please confirm with the foreign travel advice page whether or not you are free to enter a country without a PCR certificate for travelling abroad before booking.

What are the consequences of forgetting/ misplacing my Covid-19 PCR certificate for travelling abroad?

Most airports reserve the right to turn away anyone without a travel certificate if it is in breach of present regulations, regardless of circumstance. Being certain that you possess all necessary documents is extremely important before departing on the day of your flight. Book your Covid-19 PCR test with us today at our Luton clinic or order your next-day delivery home test kit to London, Manchester, Birmingham or anywhere else in the UK. Give us a call on 0333 012 4214 or email us at for more information or to book your appointment.
