Order before 3pm (Monday – Friday) for same day dispatch to receive your test kit the next day via Royal Mail tracked 24. You will be notified of an estimated delivery time by Royal Mail the evening prior to delivery.
Each test kit contains everything you need to take your sample, including detailed instructions to make this a simple process. Each test kit will need to be registered on our website prior to use so that we can track your unique sample specimen ID to your personal data.
During this registration process, individuals can add all the required information to be printed on your laboratory certificate to make this a COVID free certificate for travel including DOB, Passport number and the time and date of the test sample.
The kit contains a prepaid Royal Mail tracked 24 returns bag to allow you to drop the kit into any Royal Mail priority postbox after testing. Following registration you’ll get an email which will be a receipt of your submission and will contain your returns tracking number which can be used to track your sample back to our laboratory.
Mail is received into our laboratory Monday – Saturday and all mail is processed to head into the laboratory by 12 noon. Results are typically returned by 12 noon the following day, 7 days per week.
It should be noted that this service relies on the efficiency of Royal Mail and all turnaround times are approximate and not guarantees. You are welcome to drop the test off at our Barnard Castle Test facility at our 24/7 drop box to further speed up the process.
