Due to the Coronavirus, many countries have set new restrictions on entering their borders, and airlines have tighter requirements for flying with them. The restrictions are placed on both exiting and entering various countries and could result in you missing flights or having to cancel travel arrangements altogether.
Getting the proper Coronavirus flight certificate should be your top priority when making your travel arrangements. This certificate assures the airlines and border control officials that you are virus-free by providing negative test results from a PCR test.
This is an easy covid flight test that will give both you and the authorities the assurance you need that you are low risk and unlikely to carry the virus. We will need a saliva sample to test and will get the results back to you quickly and efficiently.
With many of the restrictions on travel also changing constantly, having a covid flight certificate can help you navigate regulations and successfully carry out your travel plans. Current requirements for travel can be found on the Foreign Office guidance website. It is advisable that if you plan to travel abroad where a coronavirus flight test is not required, you make plans to obtain a coronavirus flight test in case requirements change suddenly.
Our standard turnaround time for a covid flight test is 24-48 hours after your sample has been delivered to the laboratory for analysis. Please be aware that this could take longer over weekends as the lab is closed on Sundays.
If you need your certificate more urgently then you can benefit from our express courier service that collects your sample and will bypass postal delays. Please call us on 0330 9000 010 to find out more.
Most countries and airlines require you to have a certificate dated within 72 hours, so we recommend you check individual requirements and plan your test accordingly. If you need help with making sure you will have your test in time, contact us and we can advise you on how to best handle the procedure.

2. Collect your sample using the swab supplied.
3. Fill in the necessary details on your pathology form and sample tube.
4. Put your sample and pathology form into the prepaid envelope provided and post it to us for testing.
5. Your results will be ready to view online within 24-48 hours.
Our PCR tests are 100% accurate when administered correctly. Summerfield Healthcare is regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to give you full assurance that any testing and results provided are through a registered and reliable service provider.

If you receive a negative result, that means you do not have the active virus and you should be safe to travel. Continue to stay safe and make sure you have your certificate ready for inspection.
If you receive a positive result then it means you are currently infected with the Coronavirus. You should:
· Cancel or postpone your travel arrangements
· Self-isolate, along with anyone in your household
· Let anyone you have had contact with in the last 48 hours know about your result so they can take the necessary precautions.
