Planning the next family getaway?

Are you planning on taking your family abroad or wanting to visit a foreign country? You may need to get a Fit to Fly certificate in Nottingham via a COVID19 PCR Test kit.

COVID-19 has drastically changed the way that we live and the way that we travel. Since early 2020, the travel industry has almost been non existent and millions of people worldwide have had to to cancel their travel plans. Over a year later and things are beginning to look somewhat brighter! The skies are opening up and so are the borders, with people enjoying the pleasure of travel again. There are, however, certain restrictions and measures that we need to adhere to before we go on our next adventure!

Over the course of the Covid-19 pandemic, the importance of reliable, accessible testing to screen for the Coronavirus disease has become increasingly apparent. Travel restrictions are changing everyday, with  airlines and countries now asking their passengers and visitors for Fit to Fly certificates. Said certificates are used to prove that they have had a negative COVID-19 test result in the 72 hours prior to their travel. That is why we are now offering COVID PCR tests in Nottingham as well as Fit to Fly Certificates. We’ve partnered with Medicspot so that you don’t get caught out before your flight.


What is a COVID19 PCR Test?

PCR stands for Polymerase Chain Reaction. This test is designed and used to directly detect the presence of the genetic material/antigens of the COVID-19 virus rather than the presence of the body’s immune response, or antibodies. This is only possible if the virus is present and someone is actively infected. The tests can tell whether or not someone has 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 are present. PCR tests give us a good indication of who is infected and who is not.


Who is the Test for?



The COVID PCR tests are for people of all ages who are planning a holiday or need to travel abroad. Travellers are now required to have a certificate/document to prove to airlines and countries they are visiting that they do not have an active COVID-19 infection. The test is not suitable for those who have COVID-19 like symptoms or for those who have had symptoms up to 28 days prior to the test – these people should follow nhs guidance regarding self-isolation and testing.

As regulations differ depending on the destination or airline, please make sure that you check for the most up to date travel information. You can do this by speaking to your airline directly or by simply visiting the Foreign Office website where more details and guidance can be found.
