Our Rapid Antigen Testing Process
We have developed a unique procedure for remote Covid-19 Rapid Antigen testing that delivers quick, reliable, and certifiable results. The process is simple: Purchase your tests in our store, book your online supervision appointment, register each person attending the session, attend the session and wheels up!
STEP 1: Order Your Tests Online
Order your tests online at least 5 Days PRIOR to departing the UK as in most cases test delivery can take 24 – 48hours (weekdays).
To help you determine what tests to order read our Step by Step Guide to Travel Testing.
The rules and regulations continue to change, it is your responsibility to make sure you have the right tests at the right time. Please check age limits for tests. For returning to the UK, all those who are aged 11 and over need a test to return.
Purchase your Rapid Antigen Testing Service with Certificate Below. Select from a variety of value ranging from single packs to packs of five to suit your family or travelling group’s need. Each pack includes the full test kit, online appointment/s and certificate.
Check the Contents of Your Test Kit on Arrival
The tests we provide are fully certified and have been through careful quality control at the manufacturer. However, due to the number of tests currently being produced, all suppliers are reporting occasional instances where tests contain empty buffer fluid bottles, are missing components, or may be damaged in transit. Thankfully, this is rare, however, to be safe we ask you to check the tests immediately on arrival. In case of any concerns, please contact us immediately so that we can send you a replacement test as soon as possible.
For each test you require a swab, a cartridge in a silver foil pack (please do not open until the time of your test) and a sealed tube with buffer(fluid) in (it only requires a couple of drops).
Even though the box states this is a self-test, please do not perform the test without our supervision, as we need to supervise your test fully to provide you with a certificate.
STEP 2: Book your Online Supervision Appointment
Your appointment with Breathe Assured can be booked in advance. Book early to reduce travel stress and to guarantee an appointment convenient for you. Our online appointment means you can perform the test from the comfort of your hotel room or accommodation. You can book both your Outbound and Inbound Tests Sessions immediately.
- Book and register your tests PRIOR to departing the UK. The registration numbers will be required on your passenger locator form. If you do not register these tests, you will not be allowed to board the flight.
- Please note all times are UK TIME (we suggest you record this in your phone). You can book single or group sessions (max 5 people in group session). All appointments are 30 mins.
- Your booking will be via a zoom link. Please download any software required and be on the link 5 minutes before your appointment. We also are available to perform it on MS teams if that is preferable. Whilst it is possible to use a smart phone, tablets and laptops are much more efficient. Due to the sensitive and confidential nature of the tests, we cannot perform an appointment in trains and cars etc.
- You can change your appointment free of charge within 12 hours – missed appointments will require you to purchase additional supervised slots on the website. If there are no slots available, and it is over 48 hours before you need the test, please email customer services who will arrange it.
Outbound Flight: If Applicable
Arrange your online nurse-supervised appointment for your outbound flight within your destination’s travel guidelines. This is usually between 24 – 72 hours before arrival.
Inbound Flight: Mandatory for all travellers
Arrange your online nurse-supervised appointment for your return to the UK Rapid Antigen Tests. Your appointment must be within 72 hours of your arrival time back in the United Kingdom.

The form must be completed for each individual being tested in the same online supervision session:
STEP 3: Attend your Session and Perform your Test
- At least 10 minutes before your appointment, prepare your test kit and passport.
- Wash your hands and blow your nose.
- Log on to your computer and use the meeting link on your Breathe Assured Booking Confirmation email to connect.
- The nurse will join you at the allotted appointment time and take you through the testing process ensuring the sample is captured as accurately as possible.
- The nurse will remain on the call with you until the results are received. A certificate will be issued immediately on negative result.
Note on your certificate
It is your responsibility to check all the information when you receive it which you can do online with your nurse at the end of the appointment. It can be corrected at the time, but more difficult to do later as it gets uploaded to Public Health England.
Should you require any additional assistance or information you can email email@example.com.
Our customer service team is available 8am to 8pm (UK time) every day, however we do monitor emails after hours in case of emergencies.
