Fit to Fly PCR Certificate for Travellers to France

Fit to Fly PCR Certificate for Travellers to France

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a disruptive impact on most parts of our lives. From the way we socialise to the way we work and carry out everyday tasks like shopping for essential and non-essential items. Given how popular travel to France and other parts of Europe is for UK residents, one of the most noticeable impacts aside from all the social distancing and mask-wearing is the fact that how we travel, within the UK and crucially, outside of the UK has changed.

Never before has travel to and from the UK been so scrutinised and controlled. Fortunately, with the vaccination programme being handled better than expected, it feels like we might be turning a corner and heading towards some normality.

So, that holiday in France might not be quite as impossible as it was last year. However, before you start booking holidays, it’s important to appreciate the fact that the rules and regulations are changing regularly. With that in mind, in the following post, we are going to look at the rules about travelling to France and what kind of documentation and tests you need to obtain before you can do so.

Can You Travel to France?

It depends on your circumstances. From the start of the year, there have been tight restrictions by both countries on travel between France and the UK, in efforts to slow the spread of the coronavirus. As things currently stand, therefore, you are not allowed to travel to France from the UK for non-essential reasons, unless you are a UK national with legal residency in France.

Which Covid-19 Tests Do You Need to Travel to France?

You need to obtain a negative Covid-19 antigen or PCR swab test for travel to France. This needs to be taken within 72 hours before your departure time.

Is Additional Documentation Required for Traveling to France?

Yes, there are several different documents you need to obtain before you can enter France, even with a negative Covid-19 test result and have a France Fit to Fly Certificate. You need to complete a signed Travel Certificate and a sworn statement. While the travel certificate outlines the reasons why you are travelling, the sworn statement confirms that you are not currently suffering from any Covid-19 symptoms and for the last two weeks have not been in contact with any known and confirmed Covid-19 cases.

How Can You Get a Covid-19 Test and Fit to Fly Certificate Approved by the French Government?

Various companies and organisations are offering Covid-19 tests and fit to fly certificates. However, Pure Testing is one of only a few that has full Government backing and uses testing facilities and a laboratory that has been given UKAS certification.

The tests are administered quickly, and accurate results are obtained quickly. Not only that though, but the process involved in getting Covid-19 tests has been made incredibly simple. You just need to use their online booking scheduler, choosing a time and date that suits and that coincides with your journey time. Then, on the day of your test, head along to their testing facility and the process will take no longer than 15 minutes and involves a simple nose swab sample being taken.

You then just need to wait at home for the results, which will be sent to you in the format of your choice via email. Along with your results, you will also receive all the important documentation and evidence that proves Pure Testing is a government-backed and certified testing institution.

Why Choose Pure Testing?

Further to the reasons outlined above, you should consider Pure Testing as your chosen Covid-19 testing company because they have a team that is made up of experienced and skilled healthcare professions. They have been given extensive training in the test sampling process and are fully committed to delivering the most accurate, efficient, and quick service possible.

The Antigen Test is used to determine whether you have the Covid-19 virus. This test works by searching for the pieces of the virus that your immune system recognises, the antigens.

It is especially helpful for screening acute, asymptomatic, and mild patients for identifying the Covid-19 infection.

We will email you the test result certificate by 10pm the same day you had the test.

NB. You are not allowed to travel to the majority of destinations on the basis of your Covid-19 Antigen Test. If you are looking to travel please book your PCR Test and Fit to Fly Certificate.
