Obtain your COVID-19 Travel Certificate
As the coronavirus pandemic restrictions ease, you may increasingly travel for business or pleasure.
It is common for airline carriers, immigration departments and other organisations to ask travellers to prove that they don’t currently carry an active COVID-19 infection.
We have covered how to get a quick Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test for this unique virus.
How do you get a travel certificate to prove a negative COVID-19 PCR test?
There are likely to be a growing number of occasions when you will need to prove that you have taken a COVID PCR test and that you don’t carry an active virus.

Having a COVID test certificate can also help you to avoid lengthy quarantine periods after your flight.
