Fit to Fly PCR Test Sheffield South Yorkshire




Ensuring You Travel Safely

What Is a RT-PCR Test?

A real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) is a test used to diagnosis whether you are currently infected with SARS-CoV-2, which is the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. The PCR test is the gold standard test for diagnosing COVID-19 because it is the most accurate, quickest and reliable test.



Why Do I Need a RT-PCR Fit-to-Fly Test & Certificate?

There are a number of airlines and countries that require passengers to produce evidence of a recent negative COVID-19 test before flying. COVID-19 Fit for Travel Certificates are proof that you have tested negative for COVID-19.

The test is not related to your risk of flying due to your pre-existing medical conditions. You can get a free NHS test for coronavirus at a test site near you if you’re showing symptoms of coronavirus. However, COVID-19 tests are not available on the NHS for the purpose of international travel. In this instance you must undergo a private test.


How Long Is My RT-PCR Fit-to-Fly Test Certificate Valid For?

Your COVID-19 Fit for Travel Certificate is only valid for a short time. Your airline and destination will have their own requirements and you should check these as soon as you know where you are going and who you are travelling with. It is therefore critical that you check regulations and take your test within the required time frame. Generally speaking, airlines will tell you to take a test between 48, 72 or 96 hours.
