What is a PCR Covid-19 Travel Certificate?

With the recent announcement of easing of the lockdown, international travel has started to open up again. However, all international travel at present requires evidence of a NEGATIVE Covid-19 test. Specifically the vast majority of airlines and countries require an official lab report from a UKAS accredited clinic. The only test accepted at the moment is a PCR Covid-19 Test. At Rejuvence Medical, UK Medicare Screening offers an accredited service and can perform a Covid-19 PCR Swab test for you. Upon receipt of a NEGATIVE result we will provide you with a Certificate confirming the test result. This can be presented to the airport and upon arrival at your destination.

When should I get my PCR Covid-19 Test for Travel?

Depending upon where you are flying to and with which airline, there are different requirements for when the test should be conducted. The majority of countries and airlines are asking for tests to be valid within 72hours of departure. However, a handful of countries are requesting tests conducted within 48 hours of departure. When you book your appointment with us you must provide us with these details. We will advise you on when to have your test carried out. Please note that Rejuvence Medical and UK Medicare Screening will NOT take responsibility for missing your flight.

What if I don’t get my results in time?

At Rejuvence Medical, UK Medicare Screening will always do their best to ensure you get your results in time for you to fly. We use extremely reliable labs that almost always turn around Covid-19 Swab Tests within 12 hours of receiving them. We work 7 days a week and provide an extremely flexible in-clinic and mobile service. However, should there be a delay Rejuvence Medical and UK Medicare Screening will not take responsibility for missing your flight.

How can I book a PCR Covid-19 Swab Test for Travel?

Booking with us is very easy. You can arrange a test online using our online booking portal. However, please ensure that you book your test well within the required time frame. For those requiring a test within 72hours of departure please ensure you book your test at least 48hours prior to your flight. For those requiring a swab within 48 hour of your flight, please ensure you book your test within 36 hour of your flight. If you are unsure of when to book your test we recommend you call us on 0207 531 6600, with your itinerary and our admin staff will help to arrange the best time to get your test done. Please note that Rejuvence Medical and UK Medicare Screening will NOT take responsibility for you missing your flight.

Do I need to come to the clinic for my PCR Covid-19 Swab Test for Travel?

At Rejuvence Medical, UK Medicare Screening offers an in-clinic and mobile PCR Covid-19 Swabbing Service. We offer Covid-19 Swab Test on our clinic site close to Canary Wharf for £150.00. Our staff can also carry out the test for you at your home or office. The cost of this service starts from £180.00 depending on where you live or work. For further details on our mobile service please call us on 0207 531 6600.

If you are coming to the clinic to get your test done, please bring your passport and E-Ticket with you so that our staff can check the departure times and the requirements of your Covid-19 Swab Test. We attach passport numbers to all our lab requests. Some countries insist your passport number is clearly documented on your Travel Certificate. If you opt for our mobile service please ensure you have your passport and E-Ticket with you such that our staff can make note of these when they arrive at your home or office to carry out your test.

A handful of countries, such as China, require an antibody test in addition to a PCR Covid-19 Swab Test. An antibody test is a blood test that shows whether you have had Covid-19 before. At Rejuvence Medical, UK Medicare Screening can perform an antibody blood test for you at the same time as your swab and we will ensure both results are clearly documented on your issued Travel Certificate. Both tests take around the same time to be processed by the lab and hence are carried out at the same time.

If you currently have symptoms of Covid-19 you should NOT be travelling. You should arrange immediately for Covid-19 Swab Test with the NHS. Even in the presence of a negative test you should delay your travel plans and ensure you have self-isolated for at least 10 days.

If you have been exposed to someone currently suffering with Covid-19 you should notify track and trace and delay your travel plans until you have completed 14 days of self-isolation. Although the Covid-19 PCR Swab Test detects the presence of the virus in its early stages, a negative test does not mean you may not contract the illness in the next few days or on the day of your travel. Hence you should delay your departure.

Despite being vaccinated you will still need a PCR Covid-19 Swab Test for a Travel Certificate to be issued. Vaccine Passports have still not been finalised and despite having the vaccine it is still possible to contract the virus, although the illness is likely to be much milder than it otherwise would be.

At Rejuvence Medical, UK Medicare Screening offers a 10% group discount if there are 3 or more travellers. Please ensure you call our clinic or send us a message on WhatsApp to inform us of how many of you are travelling. All travellers should be flying out on the same flight and to the same destination in order for the discount to apply.
