Pre-Departure COVID-19 Testing

Book the right test for your trip

Some countries may require a negative COVID-19 test prior to entering the country. Check Gov.uk for entry restrictions, testing, or quarantine requirements for the country you are travelling to.

Our test providers use medical practitioners to take your sample, reducing the likelihood of an inconclusive result or the risk that tests are delayed in the post.

Please do not use the airport testing facility if you suspect you may have COVID-19. If this is the case, you must use NHS testing facilities.

Travellers must not use NHS testing facilities for travel related purposes.

Do not confuse the airport travel testing facility with the NHS drive through testing facility also located on airport grounds.

1. Find the right test for your trip

Please choose your test type from the options above. 

However, please remember to check your destination. Certain destinations require specific tests and the results to be presented in a particular format. 

Make sure both the type of test and the test provider’s certificate (which could be paper or digital) are accepted by the country you are travelling to. 


Please check the foreign government guidelines for your destination, as well as the UK Government COVID-19 travel advice.
