Which test do I need?

Many countries require proof of a negative COVID-19 test, taken before departure. For some destinations this can be a certificated Lateral Flow Device (LFD) test.  If you need a PCR test please click here.  For the latest information about which test you require for overseas travel and/or for returning to the UK, please check the UK government’s website

 Verified by Video

To help ensure that your certificate will be accepted our Verified by Video (Telehealth) Service provides independently witnessed sampling, which is written on the report.

Not all countries have the same travel certificate requirements and requirements may change as the pandemic evolves.  Cellmark’s Verified by Video service provides additional reassurance that, because your identification was independently checked when your sample was taken, your certificate is more likely to be accepted during your travels.
