COVID-19 – PCR Travel Certificate

Pre-Travel Clearance Certificate.

Many countries and airlines require individuals to provide a travel clearance certificate which shows evidence of a negative COVID-19 PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test prior to travel, usually taken no more than 72-96 hours before your flight.


Testing all passengers prior to flying helps to reduce COVID-19 transmission during flight. For many countries, Real Time PCR (RT-PCR) is the accepted method of COVID-19 testing for travel purposes.


With COVID-19 test results available within 12-24 hours of sample receipt at Randox laboratories in Northern Ireland, our rapid, accurate and reliable COVID-19 PCR testing service will help get your trip off to a hassle-free start, with minimum disruption to your travel plans.

Testing for COVID-19 following vaccination


UK Government guidance currently states that the COVID-19 vaccine will not interfere with testing for COVID-19 infection. The Guidance on COVID-19 antibody testing further states that the COVID-19 vaccine will not affect the result of antibody tests indicating previous infection.


It is not yet known whether getting the vaccine prevents you spreading the disease to others, so COVID-19 testing remains key, as do precautionary measures such as face masks and social distancing.


Most countries still require you to provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 test result taken up to 3 days before departure.  Please refer to your destination government guidelines for the most up to date information on your entry requirements.
