Know Your COVID-19 Status Before Flying with Our Fit to Fly Test

This at home Covid-19 test kit is perfect for travellers going on holiday, or needing to travel for work, and are required to show proof of a negative Covid test result.

Our Fit to Fly PCR test will confirm whether you are currently infected with coronavirus (COVID-19). Present your negative result at the airport as your Fit to Fly certificate.

Depending on which country you are visiting, you may be required to have proof of a negative COVID-19 result 48-96 hours before arriving at your destination. You will need to review the requirements of the country you are flying to, regarding the specific timeframe for a Fit to Fly certification, and prepare accordingly.

How do I send my home test sample to the laboratory?

We will do our very best to make sure that we can support you in getting your sample to the laboratory safely and securely.

You can do any of the following:

1. Free Royal Mail Tracked 24
2. Prenetics drop off locations
3. Self-arranged private courier

1. Free Royal Mail Tracked 24

All of our COVID-19 home test kits include free Royal Mail Tracked 24 return mailers to post your completed sample to our laboratory. Send your test kit back using the free Royal Mail return envelope provided via a Royal Mail Priority Postbox Monday - Friday. You can find your nearest Priority Postbox here. When researching your nearest Royal Mail Priority postbox, remember to consider the collection days and last collection times for a postbox. This should help ensure your sample arrives promptly at the laboratory. Please bear in mind that Royal Mail has limited or no service on Saturdays or Sundays, therefore kits should not be put in a postbox on a Saturday or Sunday with return to the lab expected on that day. Use the following table to understand when your sample(s) will arrive at our laboratory according to the day you posted your sample.

2. Prenetics drop off locations

By dropping off at one of our locations, your sample will be collected by courier and delivered directly to the laboratory. Depending on which Test Pod you drop your sample off at, the average time for samples arriving at the laboratory ranges from 6:30pm - 11pm. Please note that samples must be returned before the courier arrives and passed by hand to the staff member on site. Staff members sit within the Pod. For each pod, the courier arrives at closing time. For example, the closing time for the Dartford Pod is 4pm so the courier arrives at, or shortly after, 4pm. Prenetics does not accept any liability for lost or delayed samples that are dropped at the Test Pods out of hours and refunds will not be issued.

3. Self-arranged private courier

You can use a private courier. We recommend this option if you need to return your sample over the weekend to receive your COVID-19 results on a specific date.

Can I use a Project Screen test when I arrive in the UK from abroad?

If you are fully vaccinated and arrive in England after 4am Tuesday 30 November, you:

  • must self-isolate
  • take a PCR test before the end of day 2 after you arrive (lateral flow tests will not be accepted)
  • can leave self-isolation if your PCR test result is negative

If you are fully vaccinated

This is what you need to do if you qualify under the fully vaccinated rules for travel to England.

Before you travel to England you must:

  • book and pay for a COVID-19 test – to be taken before the end of day 2 in England
  • complete a passenger locator form – to be completed in the 48 hours before you arrive in England
  • Until 4am 30 November, you can choose a lateral flow test or a PCR test.

From 4am 30 November, you must take a PCR test.

You cannot use an NHS test for this. You must use a private test provider.

You will need to enter your COVID-19 test booking reference number on your passenger locator form.

If you will be in England for less than 2 days you still need to book and pay for a day 2 COVID-19 test.

If you are not fully vaccinated

This is what you need to do if you do not qualify under the fully vaccinated rules for travel to England.

Before you travel to England you must:

  • take a COVID-19 test – to be taken in the 3 days before you travel to England
  • book and pay for day 2 and day 8 COVID-19 PCR tests – to be taken after arrival in England
  • complete a passenger locator form – to be completed in the 48 hours before you arrive in England

After you arrive in England you must:

  • quarantine at home or in the place you are staying for 10 full days
  • take your COVID-19 PCR tests – you must book these tests before you travel
  • You must take the first test on or before day 2 and the second test on or after day 8. The day you arrive is day 0.

You may be able to end quarantine early if you pay for a private COVID-19 test through the Test to Release scheme.

If you are in England for less than 10 days, you need to quarantine for the time you are here. You need to book day 2 and day 8 PCR tests. You only need to take the tests if you are still in England on those days.

+

Can I use a Project Screen test before flying out of the UK?

Yes. Our Fit to Fly services utilise RT-PCR tests which are recognised as the global, gold-standard COVID-19 testing method. Our Fit to Fly test will confirm whether you are currently infected with coronavirus (COVID-19). Present your negative result at the airport as your Fit to Fly certificate.

Depending on which country you are visiting, you may be required to have proof of a negative COVID-19 result 48-96 hours before arriving at your destination. You will need to review the requirements of the country you are flying to regarding the specific timeframe for a Fit to Fly certification and prepare accordingly.

Choose between either our Fit to Fly at home COVID-19 kit or booking a Fit to Fly test at one of our pop-up Testing Pods in England.

+

I'm not travelling, can I still order a Project Screen COVID-19 test?

Yes, of course. We have our Health Check COVID-19 testing services that will confirm whether or not you are currently infected with coronavirus (COVID-19). There are a huge amount of reasons why people wish to discover their current COVID-19 status - whether they need to test for work, to provide care, or simply for reassurance. If you are based in the UK, check to see if you live near one of our Test Pod locations to do your Covid test in person.

+

How accurate are the COVID-19 tests by Project Screen?

Prenetics uses test kits which are approved for use for COVID-19 testing by the United Kingdom healthcare regulatory authorities (Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency - 'MHRA') and our laboratories comply with the relevant international testing standard ISO15189 (footnote 1). This means all products, personnel and processes used in our COVID-19 testing process are subject to a rigorous quality management regime and external validation. Despite this, all diagnostic testing generates a very small percentage of false results so we can never guarantee the accuracy of every result - the Lancet reported that ""RT-PCR tests to detect severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) RNA are the operational gold standard for detecting COVID-19 disease in clinical practice. RT-PCR assays in the UK have analytical sensitivity and specificity of greater than 95%, but no single gold standard assay exists (footnote 2).

2. https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lanres/article/PIIS2213-2600%2820%2930453-7/fulltext
All samples are sent to our UK-based laboratory for analysis. All samples are processed in ISO-15189/ISO-17025 internationally accredited laboratories. Our laboratory partners are UKAS accredited or UKAS applicants and DHSC validated, and use RT-PCR assays that have the highest levels of accuracy based on the QCED UK EQAP program.

+

How long do the results take?

Within 24 hours of us receiving your swab at our UK-based laboratory, your sample will be analysed, and your results will be delivered securely online. You will be notified by email when your results are ready.

+

How do you handle personal data?

We adhere to the leading international security standard, ISO-27001. Connections are encrypted using SSL and we comply with GDPR.

+

I have children (<18 years of age). Are they eligible?

Yes, children are eligible. A Project Screen account must be created by an adult, however, multiple profiles can be added to one account, including profiles for children under the age of 18.

+

I don't need to test anymore, can I get a refund?

Please refer to our Cancellation and Refund policy: https://www.projectscreen.co.uk/legals/refunds/.
