If you’re planning to travel to another country, you may need a COVID-19 PCR test certificate or a fit to fly certificate.

Some countries will not allow you to enter without this document – which confirms that you have a negative test result for COVID-19. AlphaBiolabs offers PCR tests for travel for people travelling for both business and leisure.

Our home PCR test will identify if you have an active COVID-19 infection and you will receive the results within a maximum of 48 hours. You can also opt to receive your results as early as the same working day, depending on your requirements. If you are planning to travel outside the UK within the next 72 hours, we recommend you order the test as soon as possible.

PCR tests for travel are currently not available on the NHS so you must make your own arrangements and pay for the test yourself. AlphaBiolabs makes this process as simple as possible – you will be sent a self-contained kit including everything you need to collect your own sample ready for testing.

We will give you clear instructions on how to use a swab to collect a sample from your nose and throat from the comfort of your own home. Your samples then need to be sent back to our laboratory where they will be analysed by our skilled team of scientists to see whether there is any evidence of a COVID-19 infection.

What happens next?

We pride ourselves on providing a fast, reliable and accurate COVID-19 testing service. Once we have received your samples in our laboratory ready for testing, you will receive your result the next working day or same working day if required.

If your result is negative, we will provide you with a PCR test report which you can produce when you travel to meet the entry requirements of the country you are visiting.

If you test positive for the virus, you will need to cancel your travel plans and make arrangements to self-isolate at home.

Why choose AlphaBiolabs?

You can complete the PCR test in the comfort of your own home, so you don’t need to worry about getting an appointment or travelling to another location.

With 100% accurate test results within a maximum of 48 hours, you will quickly know whether or not you have an active infection so you can make the necessary plans and arrangements.

Our home PCR test is an NHS-standard test. It can be ordered online now and orders placed before 2pm will be dispatched on the same day using a next-day courier service.

AlphaBiolabs also offers PCR testing to businesses. If your organisation has a team which needs to travel internationally for business, we can provide workplace testing to ensure your employees are fit to fly.
