Travel restrictions are changing every day during the current CV-19 pandemic. There is a need for a test and certificate to fly and gain entry into many countries. The test usually required is a PCR swab test, which tests for the presence of the CV-19 virus.
There is evidence that even asymptomatic carriers of the disease can be detected with a swab. By insisting on a test for all passengers airlines can also reduce transmission during flights.
You or your company may also want you to get tested for peace of mind so that you know your own Covid status and you’ve done everything in your power to avoid infecting others on your journey.
You can also test on your return to establish whether it safe to return to work or if you need to self isolate. This test can help clarify whether you are infected with Covid-19.
Please check your travel requirements with your destination country or travel agent as these are changing rapidly.
