COVID Fit to Fly Certificates
Flight certificates for adults, infants and babies
Fit to Fly Certification
If you need a Fit to Fly Certificate, our expert team are at hand to help. With ‘in clinic’ and ‘at home’ testing available, we’re able to help quickly and easily.
NHS COVID testing results are not suitable for travel certification and independent testing is currently required if you need to travel. Some countries, such as Hong Kong, also have very specific testing requirements.
Please check the exact requirements closely, as the timing of the test can be critically important.
How it works
Need to travel?
Fit to fly certificate information
If you’re planning to travel overseas, many airlines and countries require certification that you’re fit to travel and do not have COVID-19.
Some countries will accept laboratory test results (from an accredited laboratory only) rather than requiring an additional certificate, although most require a doctor to certify you as fit to travel.
The testing criteria for different countries is rapidly changing. Please confirm your exact requirements with your airline and the Foreign & Commonwealth Office before confirming your appointment.
Many countries have different rules and requirements aboutwhen you need to get tested, so it’s vitally important that you check with your airline and confirm the individual requirements, beforemaking an appointment.
The tests, for adults, infants and babies can be conducted in our clinic in central London, or at home.
If you wish to have the test at home, please consider the timing of the test closely. It will take at least 24 hours for you to receive the test kit after ordering. Although we use a tracked priority service, we encourage you to allow at least 48 hours for the kits to arrive.
The kits come provided with clear instructions and a priority return envelope, however, we encourage you to consider using a courier to return the sample to the laboratory if it is time sensitive.
Please consider our clinic service if you are not comfortable testing a baby or infant yourself.
Yes, we’re pleased to be able to test babies, infants and children of any age at our central London clinic.
Our service includes a package of care including; GP review of your medical history and circumstances, advice and support, COVID-19 PCR swab test, fit to fly certification and results pack, administration and support. Each test package is £195.00 per person (at home tests kits incur an additional £10 fee).
You can book online now or just call 02072363334 for any further information.
Please consider that some countries may bring in new measures with little notice such as border closures, movement restrictions or quarantine rules.
Although we will always do all we can to help, we cannot accept responsibility or liability for any costs associated with your travel arrangements, should changing advice affect our service in any way.
Home test kits are delivered by Royal Mail Tracked 24 and are therefore possibly subject to Royal Mail delivery constraints. Sadly, we cannot accept liability for Royal Mail’s delivery service.
If you require certification for a pre-booked flight and wish to be tested at home, we strongly counsel you to plan in advance and allow extra time for delivery of the test kits. We also strongly recommend you consider using a courier service to deliver your sample to the laboratory.
If your test is time-critical e.g. must be taken with XX hours of the flight, we strongly counsel you to make use of a clinic-based service. Medical appointments are a valid reason for travel during lockdown periods.
Travellers are advised by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office to be prepared to stay overseas longer than planned.
