Travellers to certain countries from the UK are required to provide a travel certificate showing proof of a negative Antigen PCR test in order to enter the country and/or to avoid mandatory quarantine on arrival.
Here at the Fleet Street Clinic, we offer a dedicated, rapid Covid-19 rt-PCR testing service with same day results to facilitate this new travel requirement.
Covid-19 PCR testing checks to see if you have coronavirus (COVID-19). It looks for active infection in those who are symptomatic and asymptomatic. A negative result means the test did not find coronavirus at the time of testing.
Travel restrictions vary from country to country and certain airlines require a negative result within a certain time period before your departure date. Please check these details before booking your PCR test, we do offer rapid testing for those requiring same-day results.
Upon request, we can provide a Covid-19 travel certificate for travel purposes, verified by a nurse to provide proof of a negative test result, at no additional cost. When required, a certified Covid-19 travel certificate can be presented to show you’re safe to fly and enter a country.
If you are wanting a dedicated ‘Fit to Fly’ certificate, find out more here.
Using our in-house PCR machine, we can guaranteed same-day results for those requiring Covid-19 testing for travel purposes. A nurse will take a throat and nasal sample at Fleet Street Clinic and process the sample onsite. This is the most efficient way to be tested quickly, in time for your travel plans.
Remove the worry of wondering if your results will be provided in time for your flight by booking a rapid Covid-19 PCR test with same day results.

We work with a highly established UK-accredited laboratory to process our standard Covid-19 PCR tests. The process is the same, a nurse will take a throat and nasal sample at Fleet Street Clinic before sending the sample off to the laboratory, who will process it as quickly as possible. Results usually take between 2-5 days but turnaround times may vary due to demand.
Where: 29 Fleet Street, London
Results in: 2-5 days (from receipt from the lab)*
Although it is unlikely, we need to make all travellers aware that delays do sometimes happen. With many destinations requiring a negative result from a recently carried out test, usually within the last 24-72 hours, we cannot guarantee this option would meet these requirements. For peace of mind and a guaranteed Covid-19 results and a travel certificate in time for your flight, we would recommend the rapid same-day coronavirus testing for same day results.
We will do our best to ensure you get the test results with plenty of time before you fly. However, as our Standard Covid-19 PCR testing service is using an external lab, some circumstances are outside of our control. Those opting for the Standard Covid-19 PCR test, please be aware, we would not take any responsibility for any travel disruptions caused should the result be delayed.
Please check the requirements for the country you’re travelling to before booking your Coronavirus (Covid-19) test. If you are unsure, please call our reception team who can provide more details and guidance; 0207 353 5678.

When coupled with a Coronavirus Covid-19 PCR test, it provides comprehensive proof you are fit to travel.
