Fit To Fly Certificates And Letters


Fit to Fly Certificates & Letters

PCR tests for fit to fly purposes are temporarily unavailable due to extreme demands for testing and current lab capacity.


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 (Temporarily Unavailable) 

To get a COVID-19 Fit to Fly certificate that is signed by one of our doctors, you first need to buy a coronavirus PCR swab home test to check if you have the active virus or not. One the order form, please check the box for “COVID Pre-Flight Screening Letter” so we can ensure your letter is included with your results.

Your home test is 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. 

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. 

Your responsibilities

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.

Test results

While test results are normally available within 3-5 days 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.


A COVID-19 PCR Swab Test costs £189 inc. postage and the COVID  Pre-Flight Screening Letter has no additional cost.
