    COVID-19 Test for Travel

    Testing for travel and how to book

    Testing options at Heathrow

    We have launched a range of private testing options for passengers at Heathrow to keep you flying safely. Our test providers offer various tests for both arriving and departing passengers as testing requirements vary depending on the country you are travelling to or from.

    Please note that these tests need to be pre-booked, and fees apply.

     

    Some countries require passengers to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test within specific timeframes of departure. At Heathrow, independent test providers offer the most commonly mandated tests by other countries.

    The types of test and timing required to take the test before departure varies by country, which is why we recommend passengers check the Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office website for the latest travel information.

    Please ensure that you carefully confirm the type of test, certification, and timeframe for completion required before booking a test and provide sufficient time to receive your results to complete your flight check-in.
