Covid PCR Travel Swabs
Are you looking to travel abroad and require proof that you are Covid free?
Many countries are now requiring a negative Covid-19 PCR swab test and certificate to show that you are not currently infected with the virus.
Phlebotomy Services can assist you with your Covid-19 pre-travel PCR swabs that are currently required to most travel destinations, requiring a negative Covid status certificate before entry. We are currently assisting many people to their holiday destinations, some at very short notice where necessary! It is important to understand the requirements of your destination country/airline or travel window.
We are happy to advice, and as always, our aim is to put you at ease with the whole procedure.
How does it work?
At present, airlines, ferries and destinations require testing and certificates to be issued within 48-96 hour window of departure. Testing all passengers prior to travel helps to reduce Covid-19 transmission during journeys.
Travel regulations are subject to change. You should keep up to date with the Government’s advice about travel and find out about your destination’s requirements, including any countries you are passing through if you have a transfer. Please contact your travel company and the relevant authorities if you are unsure about their requirements.

We are happy to supply the kits to you for you to administer the swabs yourselves but can take no responsibility for any inconclusive results due to the test being done incorrectly. The delivery, payment, and transport of the samples to the Laboratory within the given time frame would be solely your responsibility and we would take no responsibility for any problems arising. We are always happy to advise.
Why do I need it?
We have come across some terrible stories that people have been unable to board or refused entry into countries because their documentation is incorrect, so it's imperative to get your testing right. The PCR test is the accepted by most countries and airlines for travel. Do not mistake it with other tests that do not.
As the pandemic continues, countries are being very strict and rightly so.
Whether you're travelling for business, to visit family or for a much-needed break, get your test & documentation right and reduce your worries.
