Coronavirus (COVID-19) swab test and travel certificate from £149

We offer a range of COVID-19 PCR swab testing and COVID-19 IgM antibody tests to suit everyone's needs

All of our tests are Doctor-supervised and your identity is verified using your passport.  This ensures you are able to take your swab correctly and your certificate confirms that you were observed having the swab test and that the result is verified as belonging to the holder of the certificate.  This also means if an airline, foreign embassy or border force wishes to spot check the authenticity of your certificate we will be able to confirm the certificate is authentic and the test was taken by the person detailed on the certificate.

COVID-19 PCR Swab Test and Travel Certificate within 72 hours - £149

For travellers who require a negative test result within 72 hours of departure.  This is an identity verified, Doctor-supervised self swab and you will receive a certificate with your result confirming your identity and passport number.  Certificates are sent by email within 72 hours of testing.

COVID-19 PCR Swab Test and Travel Certificate within 48 hours - £199

COVID-19 IgM Antibody Test and Travel Certificate - £149

For travellers who need a negative IgM antibody test before departure (e.g. China). This is performed using a lateral flow test and results are available after 15 minutes.  The test gives qualitative (positive or negative) results for both IgM and IgG antibodies.  You will receive a certificate with your result confirming your identity and passport number.  Certificates are available immediately after testing.

COVID-19 PCR Swab & IgM Antibody Test with Travel Certificate within 48 hours for travel to China - £299
China has recently introduced a requirement for both a negative PCR swab test and a negative IgM antibody test prior to departure and have reduced the timeframe to 48 hours before departure.  We therefore provide this as a package.  This includes an identity verified, Doctor-supervised self swab with results within 48 hours and an IgM antibody test with results after 15 minutes.  A travel certificate is provided by email within 48 hours of testing once the results are reported.

About the COVID-19 Swab Test

Do I have to perform a self-swab?

Yes. In those infected with COVID-19 there are high concentrations of virus in the nose and throat and so a high risk to healthcare staff from performing swab tests.  The test can also provoke coughing which generates an aerosol of virus in the air.  This is why you are asked to perform a self-swab in your own car with the windows closed and drop the completed test into a box through your open car window at arms length.

You can see a useful video of how to perform a self-swab here - COVID-19 Self Test

Do I need a COVID-19 swab test?

This service is designed for people who need a Certificate to show they aren't currently infected with COVID-19.  If you have symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, new continuous cough, or loss/change to your sense of taste and/or smell) we recommend following NHS Guidance and booking a free NHS/HSC COVID-19 test as any positive results are then contact traced to help prevent further spread of the virus.

Can I get a COVID-19 fit for travel certificate?

Our service includes a Travel Certificate confirming your test results.  If you intend to use this for travel or submit it to an employer please check with your airline, foreign embassy or employer that it will be accepted before booking your test.

I'm travelling at the weekend.  Will I get my results?

Yes, results are reported and Travel Certificates emailed 7 days per week, day, evening and night.
