How it works

Meet testing requirements for international departures from the UK with a saliva-based ‘Fit to Fly’ PCR test.

Without the need for uncomfortable nose-and-throat swabs, our self-administrated test can advise whether you are currently infected with COVID-19 and, providing you are not, supply the necessary documentation to allow you to travel abroad.

1) Order online
Order your saliva-based PCR test kit online in advance of your travel. Orders received before 14:00 (weekdays) will be dispatched on the same day.
2) Test Delivery
Your test kit will be delivered directly to your home or any other preferred shipping address with instructions on how to register your kit and provide your sample.
3) Return your sample
Day 2 Test
Provide a saliva sample and return it to FitnessGenes using our prepaid Royal Mail Tracked 24 service.
4) Recieve your results
Results Collection
Your result will be delivered by email within 36 hours of your sample’s receipt with instructions on how to access and download your travel certificate.

Advantages of FitnessGenes testing

  • Saliva-based testing

    Provide your sample with ease and comfort at home using our saliva-based testing kits. A small saliva sample is sufficient in identifying whether you are carrying the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19. No invasive nose-and-throat swabs or medical assistance required.

  • 24-hour sample returns

    Return your sample to our UKAS accredited laboratory using our prepaid Royal Mail Tracked 24 Hour service for fast results delivery. For customers looking for next day result delivery (Mon-Fri), use of a courier service or Royal Mail’s Special Delivery service at additional expense is recommended.

  • Fast and accurate results

    Once your samples have been received at our laboratory your results will be delivered within 36 hours, allowing you to leave quarantine within the required time frame. As RT-PCR tests also have a higher sensitivity and specificity than other types of test, such as lateral flow testing, you can have confidence in your test results.

Frequently Asked Questions

Orders received before 2pm (or 10am weekends) will be dispatched the same day by DPD Express delivery, to arrive the next day.

You will receive an email from DPD once your kit has shipped, advising you of the expected delivery date.

On the day of delivery, you will also receive an email and text (if mobile number is provided) advising you of the 1-hour time slot your package will be delivered.

You can make amendments to your address or delivery date directly via the DPD website, following the instructions provided in your delivery emails.

Your result will be sent to you via email within 36 hours from receipt at our laboratory.

Samples that arrive by 12 noon are generally resulted the same day. If they arrive in the afternoon they are processed the next morning. If there is a need to repeat a test on a sample received before 12 noon it will also be done the next morning.

Please note that our lab is closed on Saturday, but can still receive samples via Royal Mail. Samples received on a Saturday will therefore be processed and resulted on Sunday.

Whilst the vast majority of our samples are processed within this timeframe (> 98%), we unfortunately cannot offer a guarantee on this as turnaround times are dependent on laboratory capacity and we may experience delays during periods of high demand.

Yes – although your purchase comes with a prepaid Royal Mail (Tracked 24) returns label that enables you to return your sample directly to our lab, where the receipt of results is particularly time sensitive, such as for fit to fly purposes, we strongly advise you arrange a next day guaranteed delivery option, such as Royal Mail Special Delivery by 9am.

If you are an existing customer who intends to courier your sample, please contact us at for further details on how to do this.

You can view or download a copy of your COVID 'Fit to Fly' certificate via our secure online Portal. Your certificate will be available from the moment your result is received.

Your data is securely protected and to access your certificate you will need to login using the last 4 digits from your sample barcode and a secure passcode provided to you upon successful registration of your sample. Be careful to ensure there are no spaces or gaps in the box!

We recommend you login to your secure portal as soon as your test is registered, so that, should you have any difficulties, we can assist you well in advance of your travel date.

In order to provide a sample, a user must be able to spit enough saliva to fill the collection device (approximately a teaspoon or so). For this reason, this test may not be suitable for very young infants, and we advise you check they are able to fulfil this requirement before purchase.

Yes - our sample collection devices require no special storage conditions and can be kept at home at room temperature, so you’ll be fully prepared for your next trip or should you require a quick test result.
