What is the PCR Swab Test?

PCR Swab Tests are considered the gold standard in Covid Testing and are the base for which Fit to Fly certification is granted.

Unlike other rapid methods of testing, PCR Tests and Fit to Fly PCR Tests are sent out to accredited laboratories for processing and the results come back signed and confirmed by a qualified practitioner.

There are two types of PCR tests:

  • PCR Swab tests, which look for the genetic material of the virus.
  • Antigen tests, which look for surface proteins.

Some countries, for example, require a negative antigen test result taken no more than 48 hours before you travel while other countries require a PCR swab test.

If you take the wrong type of Covid-19 test – or if you take the correct test at the wrong time – you may not be allowed to travel.

What are the latest Covid Fit-to-Fly regulations?

If you’re travelling abroad, it’s important to remember that Covid rules vary from country to country. Keep in mind that there are also rules for returning to the UK.

Check government and airline guidelines for updated information well in advance of your travel and right before you depart for any changes.
