Covid-19 (Coronavirus) Test for Travel

Many countries that are open to UK visitors have specific measures in place that include PCR testing before you travel. 

PCR tests use a process called polymerase chain reaction to detect the virus’s genetic material. The test requires a swab of your throat and/or nose and this sample needs to be sent to a lab for testing.  It’s a time-consuming process, so the sample usually takes at least 24 hours to process. It’s close to 100% accurate which is why it’s the preferred test for most destinations, who’ll require you to prove you’ve tested negative within a certain period prior to arrival.

We’ve complied a list of providers of in-clinic PCR tests for travel below. We do not recommend you to use a postal service due to the tight timeframes.  We have no direct affiliation with any of these providers although some have offered discounts for Kuoni customers.

You can find which destinations require pre travel testing, and how soon before departure that test needs to be conducted, by using our Country Policy finder.
