How do I take a Fit to Fly (Rapid Antigen) test?

A rapid antigen test, also known as a lateral flow test or a rapid self-test, is very simple to use and the kit you receive will contain step-by-step instructions inside.

As an overview of the process - once you’ve taken your sample and mixed it with the liquid solution provided, you’ll need to place a couple of drops onto the lateral flow device (also included) which will give you a result within 15-20mins. You’ll then just need to upload a photo of your test result so we can verify it before we’ll automatically produce a certificate that can be used for travel.

This is different to the PCR Fit To Fly tests we also sell, where you need to return your sample to the lab for it to be processed and analysed before we’ll produce your result and accompanying travel documents.
