Indicates that documentary proof:

-PCR Test Result (antigen rapid test is not accepted)

-Must be in English

-Date of test taken

-Traveller's name

-Date of test or Passport Number


PCR Test results must be accredited by UK Accreditation Service (UKAS) (Ref: https://www.moh.gov.sg/covid-19/accreditation-bodies-for-covid-19-testing)


If you are flying Singapore Airlines, they do not accept PCR test certificates from NHS. They have a pre-departure partner, Collinson, specifically for arranging pre-departure tests as well as an option. (Ref: https://www.singaporeair.com/en_UK/sg/travel-info/pdt-pcr-locations/#U-Z )



PCR Testing Centers


This is a full list of UK Gov approved avenues to get your pre-departure Covid-19 PCR test done, which is also accepted for boarding by Singapore Airlines on flights to Singapore. Even Boots UK Limited, that offers this service, is on this list and allowed!


Most important thing to look out for before you register for your test is to ensure that the lab that certifies your results are accredited by UK Accreditation Service, and that the following fields are going to be on your results:


-PCR Test (not antigen rapid test)

-English Language

-Date of test taken

-Full name

-Passport Number or Date of Birth


Highly recommend that you have a printed hardcopy and softcopy to ensure you will not be refused boarding as well.


Stay safe and take care everyone! And for those who are going to fly back soon, glad to welcome you back home :)
