Leaving the UK

In order to travel abroad from the UK, you will need evidence that you have tested negative for COVID-19 at the appropriate time before travelling. We provide tests and certificates that are accepted by all major airlines and airports, as well as Eurostar, Eurotunnel and ferry travel providers. If you are flying, you will need a Fit to Fly certificate. If you are travelling via Eurostar, Eurotunnel or ferry, you will need a Fit to Travel certificate.
