Fit To Fly + Day 2 + Day 8 package
ONLY for people who are NOT fully vaccinated under the UK vaccination programme
Please note that test kits can only be sent to UK addresses.
Pre-Departure / Fit To Fly Test (required by most countries)
Please note that this test is only valid for LEAVING the UK. You CANNOT use this test for RETURNING to the UK (we DO NOT supply the test you need to take in your destination country before returning to the UK)
Most countries now require you to provide proof of a negative Covid-19 test in order to gain entry. This is commonly known as a ‘Fit To Fly Certificate’.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you understand the entry requirements and restrictions for the country you intend to travel to. It is also your responsibility to ensure that you take your sample within the correct timeframe, according to the specific requirements of your destination country.
Visit the government website for full details of all international requirements and restrictions: https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice
Please ensure that you order your Pre-Departure / Fit To Fly test at least 5 working days before you are due to travel. This it to allow sufficient time for you to receive your kit, take your sample, return it to our laboratory, and for us to then process your sample and issue your result and certificate. If you order your test or return your sample at the last moment and there is a problem with your sample, or your test result is inconclusive, you will not have time to re-take your test and may therefore not be allowed to travel. AlphaBiolabs cannot be held responsible under these circumstances.
Day 2 & Day 8 Tests
The rules for arriving into the UK from an amber country depend on whether or not you have been fully vaccinated, and which country you are coming from.
You will need to take Day 2 & Day 8 tests if you are not fully vaccinated under the UK vaccination programme.
As the rules are quite complex and subject to frequent change, we recommend that you visit the Government website to find out what test you need and what you must do on your return to the UK.
Please note that the day of your arrival in the UK is Day Zero.

WARNING! The country you have selected is on the UK government’s red list. You are therefore unable to use the Day 2 & 8 Testing scheme. More information here.
