What is a fit to fly certificate?

A fit to fly certificate is normally a letter of approval from an accredited CQC (Care Quality Commission) health practice. However, with pressures on the health sector during the Covid-19 pandemic, NHS tests are no longer available for those flying. Instead, only approved private organisations are able to offer a travel certificate and Covid-19 RT-PCR test.

A Covid 19 fit to fly certificate should provide all necessary information confirming that you are safe for international travel.

  • Name
  • Date of birth
  • Passport number (optional)
  • Confirmation of your negative result
  • Signature of a qualified medical practitioner
  • Full test report and audit trail

Some advice before you travel

It is still important to take a coronavirus test regardless of symptoms, as you could be ‘asymptomatic.’ Even though this is more common in young people, it is always best to be safe and protect the risk of the virus from spreading.

We also recommend that you check the coronavirus restrictions and regulations in the country you are travelling to. Some may require you to do a test at the airport. Others may require you to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival. You can find out more travel guidance for individual countries by visiting the UK Government Website.

Additionally, England has a test to release scheme for international travelers, where you must quarantine for 10 days on arrival. Under the Test to Release scheme you can choose to pay for a private Covid-19 test. If the result is negative, you can end your quarantine. However, please be aware that this is only voluntary and you will need to purchase a private Covid-19 test if you wish not to quarantine. You can find more information by visiting UK Government Website.

As always, it is important to follow a hygiene routine and social distancing rules. To help with this, we have a range of Covid-19 protection range, such as: face masks, disinfectant wipes, gloves and hand sanitiser.
