Are you travelling abroad and require proof that you are fit to fly? Some countries are now requiring a negative Covid-19 swab test and certificate to show that you are not currently infected with the virus. Better2Know can test you for Covid-19 and issue a certificate in time for your flight to ensure that you arrive smoothly at your destination.
We provide two Fit to Fly testing options:
Priority Service: You are guaranteed to receive your results within 24 hours of your sample’s arrival at the lab. If you require your results and certificate within a certain time frame, please choose this option.
Standard Service: You will normally receive your results within 48 hours after your sample's arrival at the lab. If you do not require your test results within a certain time, this is the right option for you.
How does it work?
Your test kit can be ordered online or by phone. We will send it to you by post. Your kit contains everything you need to collect your sample at home. You will then be required to arrange for a courier to send your sample to our UK laboratory.
As soon as your results are ready, we will notify you by email. We will also email your signed and dated Fit to Fly Certificate, along with your pathology report detailing your results.
What are the current Covid-19 travel regulations?
At present, some airlines and destinations require Covid-19 testing and certificates to be issued within 48-96 hours of departure. Please contact your airline and the relevant authorities if you are unsure about their requirements. It is your responsibility to check whether your airline will accept the results from a home sample collection kit.
Travel regulations are subject to change. You should keep up-to-date with the Government’s advice about travel and your airline and/or destination’s requirements in relation to timing, testing and the certificate, including any countries you are passing through if you have a flight transfer.
When should I order my test?
You can order your test kit as far in advance as you would like. Please ensure that you order your kit a minimum of 10 days before your flight. If you order your kit before 4pm Monday to Friday, we will send it to you by first-class post on the same day. If you purchase your test kit over the weekend, please take into consideration that it will be posted on Monday.
When should I take my test to ensure I receive my certificate within my required time frame?
If your airline and/or destination requires your result to be processed within a specific time frame, it is important to make sure that your sample arrives at the laboratory at the correct time to allow this.
You will need to arrange for a courier to collect your sample 1-2 days before your time window begins. This will depend on how quickly your chosen courier can get your sample to our UK laboratory in London. Please arrange your courier in advance (before taking your sample) to ensure that your sample will be posted on the same day that you take it.
How accurate is this test?
Our PCR swab test will determine whether you have an active coronavirus infection, even in asymptomatic cases (when you have no symptoms). This test is highly accurate at 99.9% with the correct sampling technique. Please ensure that you follow the sample collection instructions carefully. You will be required to collect a sample from the back of your throat and inside your nostril with the same swab.
