What is a home test kit?
Antigen Lateral Flow Tests are available as unsupervised self-swab test kits, which allow you to test where and when you want rather than coming to an appointment at one of our test centres. You swab yourself, upload a photo of the test and your travel documentation, and you will receive your results and - if negative - a Fit to Fly certificate electronically.
Type of test
The home tests are unsupervised which means that no one will observe you swabbing yourself via video link, so be sure to check that any countries you are visiting or transiting through will accept self-swabbed Antigen Lateral Flow tests; and specifically that they accept unsupervised tests.
The verified test results are delivered within 2 hours providing that all the information is uploaded correctly and in a readable format. Please allow sufficient time for the upload, assessment and reply to be sent across global data networks and Wi-Fi.
You may request that the test kit is delivered to the address of your choice at no additional charge. We can deliver anywhere in England, Scotland or Wales, except for the following postcodes:
