FIT TO FLY / TRAVEL / ENTRY CERTIFICATES
It is your responsibility to check with your travel operator to ensure you have had the correct test for their requirements.
Please note that it is the patient’s responsibility to understand the requirements of the Airline / Country or test-requiring agency with regard to timing of the swab test or Lateral Flow Test and thus 15 Minute Testing cannot give specific advice in this respect.
Please be aware that on-site testing is only allowed if you are not showing any symptoms of COVID-19. If you are showing any sign of COVID-19 symptoms, please arrange an additional appointment, once symptoms have stopped.
If negative, an email will be sent with your fit to travel certificate which can then be printed out or shown as a digital copy at the airport.
Please consult your GP should you have any queries regarding the testing and the associated implications of the results.
We recommend that you always print a hard copy of the Fit To Fly Certificate prior to travelling.

LATERAL FLOW ANTIGEN SWAB TEST
WITH FIT TO FLY CERTIFICATE
The Rapid Antigen test consists solely of a nasal swab. It is one of the only 15-minute Antigen test available in the UK. Testing must be carried out onsite at our COVID secure testing facility by one of our fully trained and insured medical operatives, ensuring accurate results and safeguarding against cross-contamination.
Existing self-administered home testing swab kits provided by other suppliers, leave a great deal of room for user error and cross-contamination and thus making results unreliable and inaccurate.
This test is applicable for those that require testing for AIR TRAVEL, WORK or similar purposes. All Antigen test results are available within 15 minutes, although in many instances results are often faster.
WITH FIT TO FLY CERTIFICATE SAME DAY/NEXT DAY
PCR tests look for the genetic code (RNA) of the virus. The test involves taking a swab of the throat and nose. The test will confirm if an individual who is showing symptoms of the virus currently has it. It will not confirm whether they have had it and have now recovered. PCR tests take up to 48 hours as the collected samples need to be analysed by a UK based lab.
15 Minute Covid Test has partnered with a UK-based laboratory with experience in the Molecular and Clinical Diagnostics field to provide highly accredited ISO:15189 credentials to bring COVID-19 testing under this accreditation; a recognised standard that the Department of Health & Social Care has stipulated is the required standard of an operating laboratory offering COVID-19 test services.
This test is applicable for those that require testing for AIR TRAVEL, WORK or similar purposes.
