We’re a leading UK government recognised provider of all private Covid-19 tests. Our tests are analysed at UKAS accredited labs that comply with ISO15189 and ISO17025 standards.
Time windows are normally given by your airline or the country you are flying to. For example, an antigen test is usually required within a 48 hour time window meaning that your swab needs to be taken within 48 hours of your flight. We recommend you check your specific destination requirements here.
A nose swab sample is taken by one of our healthcare professionals at one of our nationwide clinics or at home by yourself, depending on whether you choose to get tested at home or in clinic. If you are doing your test at home, you will need to follow the step-by-step instructions which include observed sampling. This is automatically accessed when choosing the USA as your destination country.
Yes - our test is approved for travel to the USA. The CDC COVID-19 Testing Order states that USA travellers must be tested with an authorised viral test that could be either an antigen test or nucleic acid amplification test (e.g. a PCR or LAMP test) and that the testing procedure is observed, following ID confirmation.
All clinic antigen tests are approved for travel so you can visit any one of our nationwide clinics for a test. For home testing, the CDC requires an observed sample. Our home antigen tests include an observed sample (this is where you are observed taking your test), there are step-by-step video instructions for the entire testing process and when complete, you will be sent a Fit to Fly certifcate that is accepted for entry into the United States.
Negative: You do not have any evidence of an active Covid-19 infection.
Positive: The virus that causes Covid-19 has been detected on your swab. As of 18 March, the UK no longer requires quarantine after a positive Covid-19 result. Note, most destination countries will still require a negative test result to fly.
Unclear: On rare occasions, it might not be possible to say if you had the virus when your test was done. In the event of this happening please contact us, quote your order number and we will arrange a retest.
Antigen test results are delivered within three hours of when you submit your results, between 8am and 8pm GMT. Any results submitted after 5pm GMT may not be published until the next day. All test samples are analysed 7 days a week, and you'll get your results as soon as they're released.
