If your travel destination requires a negative PCR test certificate before allowing you to board the flight or enter the country, you need to consider if the country you’re visiting requires a negative PCR test certificate within 48 hours or 72 hours. This varies depending on your destination.
Your airline will be able to advise you on how soon booking a COVID-19 test for travel is needed to meet the country’s requirements. We recommend booking no earlier than three working days before your travel date to ensure your test results are as up-to-date as possible.
You can use your results from our COVID-19 PCR test results to prove you are ‘fit to fly’ when travelling abroad. Different countries have different travel requirements regarding COVID-19, so check with the airline and country you’re visiting. Make sure to regularly check GOV.uk’s foreign travel advice for updates on your destination before you travel.
Although many COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted in the UK, you should check the government’s advice for travelling back to England to see if you need to quarantine when you return. Similarly, you should check travel advice for your destination country incase you need to quarantine on arrival, what exemptions there are and if the country you intend to visit is on the Green, Amber or Red list.
