Most frequent questions and answers

While PCR is the most widely accepted form of testing, we do advise that you check with your airline & country of travel before booking as the requirements differ from airline to airline and restrictions vary for each country. Some countries have stricter requirements & may not accept tests that are not signed by a practitioner. The requirements are constantly changing so we do recommend you check for updates closer to your time of travel.
