Pre-Travel (& general health screening)
Lateral Flow Test
LivingCare provide a self swab testing solution to fly based on a lateral flow test that you perform yourself and upload a picture of the result to our online portal.
These can be used for travel to a number of destinations including flying back to the UK (as required by the UK Government for travelers who aren't fully vaccinated return to the UK) – But please check with the country you are travelling to to ensure that it’s accepted as we are unable to advise on this.
You perform the test yourself and upload a picture of the lateral flow test device after 15 minutes next to your passport.
Your results are then issued in a PDF format on your online account by our team, and include the details you include at the time of booking including the essentials you need to use your certificate to travel to a wide range of destinations.
Please note: Although the test itself can be uploaded 15 minutes after performing, results are not issued instantly on our side as our team have to verify results then issue your certificate. Please perform your test at least 48 hours before travel.
You must book your test online HERE. Booking online is the only option for this service and you must not call our team as they cannot advise you or book over the phone.
Book your test in advance of your travel, as you will need to allow for your tests to be posted out and arrive with you prior to departure- We would suggest ordering approximately a week before you fly. (All kits are sent Special Delivery with Royal Mail within 48 working hours of ordering)
Check the contents of your kit include 1x swab, 1x lateral flow test device, 1x buffer solution tube and 1x dropper cap before you depart. Once you are abroad we are unable to issue any replacement items.
Take your test kits away with you on holiday, taking extra care to take all parts of the kit with you.
Read the instructions included with your kit to complete your swab test. You must perform your lateral flow test in line with guidance regarding the timescales of testing to travel from your country of travel – Full information can be found on the GOV.UK website here – https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice
