Fit to Fly Certificates & Letters

COVID-19 Pre-Flight Screening Letter

Our doctors can provide a medical certificate to certify your coronavirus PCR Swab test results for no additional cost which is suitable for both international travel or for employment purposes.

How to get a COVID-19 Fit to Fly Certificate 

To get a COVID-19 Fit to Fly certificate that is signed by one of our doctors, you first need to take a coronavirus PCR swab test at one of our select clinics or order a home Covid PCR swab to check if you have the active virus or not.

PCR swabs are available at select clinics. Additionally, we can offer a home private PCR Covid test (swab).



Please note it is your responsibility to check the travel requirements of the airline and country you are travelling to, as well as to ensure your results are received in the time frame required by the airline and country.

Pre-departure home Covid Tests

Home tests are delivered by Royal Mail Tracked 24 and subject to Royal Mail turnaround times. If you require the test and letter for a flight we advise you order your test well ahead of time. All test kits come with a pre-paid “Special Business Class” return envelope. We strongly recommend you arrange a courier to deliver your results back to the lab if you require your results back as soon as possible. 

While test results are normally available within 48 hours from receipt of the sample by the lab, we cannot guarantee these turnaround times. We cannot guarantee nor have any control over Royal Mail turnaround times.  We cannot be held liable for any knock-on implications should delivery timescales be longer than those advertised.

After you have already ordered the test but did not check the box, you can contact us on and ask for the additional certification from the doctor. The doctor will provide you with official confirmation of your results. 

A COVID-19 Home PCR Swab Test costs £99 inc. postage
