COVID19 PCR Test in Manchester – Quick and affordable testing!

Looking to travel anytime soon?

Are you heading to your home country to see the family? Or planning on visiting a tropical island? Getting your Fit to Fly certificate in Manchester via a COVID19 PCR Test kit is essential before you travel.

Over the past year or so, millions of people across the globe have been forced to cancel their travel plans. However, as restrictions ease, airlines and countries are opening up for travel once again, albeit with certain travel restrictions to adhere to.

Travel restrictions are ever-changing and many countries currently require Fit to Fly certificates to prove a passenger’s negative COVID-19 test result in the 72 hours prior to their travel.  Over the course of the Covid-19 pandemic, the need for reliable, accessible testing to screen for the Coronavirus disease has become increasingly apparent; that is why we are now offering COVID PCR tests in Manchester as well as the necessary Fit to Fly Certificates. We have partnered with Medicspot to offer you all the documentation you need.


How does a COVID19 PCR Test work?

PCR stands for Polymerase Chain Reaction. Essentially, the test directly detects the presence of the antigens (or genetic material) of the COVID-19, virus rather than the presence of antibodies, or the body’s immune response. The tests can tell whether or not someone is actively infected with the virus very early on by detecting viral RNA (ribonucleic acid), which will be present in the body before antibodies form, or symptoms of the disease become apparent. Ultimately, PCR tests offer a good indication of who is infected and who is not.


Who is the Test for?



Covid PCR tests are essential for anyone who is planning a holiday, or needs to travel abroad for any reason. Passengers must now provide a certificate to airlines and countries proving that they do not have an active COVID-19 infection. The test is not suitable for those who currently have, or have had symptoms up to 28 days prior to the test – these people should follow nhs guidance regarding self-isolation and testing.

Regulations may differ across destinations and airlines; therefore, you should regularly check for the most up-to-date travel information in advance of your trip. You can speak to your airline directly, or visit the Foreign Office website where more details and guidance can be found.
