Travel

Travelling abroad can be daunting under the current guidelines especially as each country has its own requirements for entry.

One way to guarantee a smooth travel experience is to conduct a PCR test which comes with a Fit to Fly certificate. 

With this certificate, you will be able to enter the country you are visiting without the need to self-isolate at entry. 

Please ensure you check the requirements of the country you are visiting and take special care with the timing of the test. Some countries will specify the number of hours before travel that the PCR test must be conducted.
