Do I need PCR tests to travel?
Lots of countries do still require travellers to be tested for Covid-19. PCR tests are the most accurate way to detect the illness, so it is best to get tested with a PCR before you travel.
If you have been in contact with someone who has Covid-19, even if you don’t have any symptoms, you should get a PCR test. This will ensure that you are not carrying the virus and can travel safely. It is always worth double checking the entry requirements for the country you are visiting, as travel rules can change quickly in response to new variants appearing.
How long will it take to get PCR results?
PCR test results are usually received within 24 hours. This means that you will know very quickly whether you have the virus or not. Normally, we can deliver results in this time frame, however in exceptionally busy periods it may be up to 48 hours. Please ensure you provide us with accurate contact information, particularly your email address, as this is the primary way for us to get your results to you.
