TRAVEL TESTING REQUIREMENTS
At present, some airlines and destinations require testing and certificates. Depending on the requirements for your destination country, testing could be required within a specified timeframe – for example 48, 72 or 96 hours prior to departure. Please ensure you arrange your test prior to travel in an appropriate time-frame to allow for any delays i.e. if test required in the 72 hours prior to travel – arrange the test for 72 hours prior to your flight.
Travel regulations are subject to change. You should keep up to date with the Government’s advice about travel and find out about your destination’s requirements, including any countries you are passing through if you have a flight transfer.
