Covid has had a staggering impact on the travel industry, with millions of people across the globe being forced to cancel their travel plans in 2020. However, over a year later, airlines and countries are starting to reintroduce travel; this is all thanks to the availability of PCR Tests such as ours.
Many airlines and countries now require documentation to prove a negative Covid test 48-72 hours prior to travel. PCR stands for Polymerase Chain Reaction. This is used to detect the active presence of Covid-19 antigens. However, this test does not detect antibodies, which represent the body’s immune response to a previous case of infection.
The test gives an accurate indication regarding who is, and is not, infected. This offers countries and airlines an increased sense of control over the spread of the virus.
Fit to Fly/ Covid PCR tests cater for people of all ages that need to travel abroad for a multitude of reasons. This is as a result of the increased need for proof of an active Covid-19 infection. It is important to be prepared before you go; so we would recommend checking the Foreign Office Website in advance of your trip.
It is important to note that this test is not suitable for those who have experienced Covid symptoms up to 28 days prior to the test, or for those who are currently experiencing Covid symptoms. If either of these categories relates to you, you are instead advised to follow Government guidance with regards to self-isolation and testing.
