It is your responsibility to check you are not only booking the correct COVID test but also ensure you leave enough time to get the results before you fly. The COVID testing service is operated by ICTS UK & Ireland and the TAC Healthcare Group Ltd. Southampton Airport is not responsible for any results of testing.GOV.UK Foreign travel advice
Use the link in the payment confirmation email to complete step 2 of the booking process with TAC, our Rapid Antigen Test booking partner. This step not only verifies your email address, which is essential to receiving your testing certificate, but it's also because Southampton Airport doesn't capture essential health data which you will need to provide to TAC. This will include your GPs details, and passport number, as this information is required by the Labs in order to process your test.
YOU MUST COMPLETE STEP 2 OTHERWISE YOU WILL NOT BE TESTED
Receive your booking confirmation email from TAC to confirm your Rapid Antigen Test slot. Note, during busy periods this can sometimes time a few hours to arrive in your inbox.
On the day
Passengers flying who require this test will not be allowed to check-in unless they have a negative test result. On arriving, these passengers must follow signs for the testing zone, located in The Globe Bar & Kitchen before security search. At the entrance, report to the Reception desk, where further instruction will be provided.
WHEN ENTERING THE TERMINAL PLEASE WEAR A FACECOVERING
The process will take between 12 and 15 minutes. Passengers will be asked to wait in the testing facility until this is complete. Please note, the testing process can sometimes take longer. Once the testing process is completed, the passengers will be issued a certificate via email. The certificate will be sent to the same email address that was verified when you made your booking.
The Antigen test will offer either a negative or non-negative test. Passengers will require a negative test to be able to travel.
Given the frequency of change, we advise you to check the GOV.UK Foreign Travel Advice website for the latest details.
