Step 1 Work out when to take your test
Many airlines and countries require a mandatory, negative Covid-19 PCR test result confirming that you are Covid-19 free before travel. You must ensure you complete your swab test within the testing window set out by your destination country as this may vary.
You should check with your airline and destination country about any special requirements for the test &/or certificate before purchasing and confirm with One Scientific before submitting test swab that these will be met, to prevent issues later in you travels.
Step 2 Order your Covid-19 PCR test kit and Fit-to-Fly Certificate
Once you have confirmed your travel arrangements and when you need to take your test, order your test. You can order your test in advance and keep this until it is required.
All our PCR tests for travel include:
- Free Royal Mail 1st Class delivery (order before 2pm Mon-Fri)

Step 3 Take your PCR travel test
Using a swab, you will take a combined throat and nose sample. Your home test kit is supplied with a detailed set of instructions guiding you on how to collect your sample correctly.

Please note Failure to activate your swab via the app will prevent you receiving your results.
