Travel Clearance Certificate Now Available at TMB

As international travel begins to resume once again, COVID-19 remains prevalent in many countries worldwide and so numerous airlines and countries have introduced regulations which requires individuals to have a COVID-19 Travel Clearance Certificate to fly or to enter a country. Tropical Medical Bureau are delighted to announce that Travel Clearance Certificates are now available in selected clinics or via home testing kit.

The Travel Clearance Certificate is becoming recognised internationally as proof that an individual has had a COVID-19 viral test and is clear of infection within a determined time frame. Some countries currently require the cert to be issued within 72 hours before travelling. Travellers need to ensure the specific entry requirements of the country they are planning to travel to.

Currently TMB are able to offer the Travel Clearance Certificate service from €160 with a 48 to 72-hour turnaround time which will assist in an individual’s travel plans. This service includes a viral swab test and, result dependent, a certificate documenting an individual’s eligibility to travel. Once the results are through, they are uploaded to the secure portal on the patients myTMB account.

Please note, this service is only for those who are perfectly healthy and well with no signs of possible COVID-19 infection. For those showing signs of COVID-19, it is recommended to self-isolate and contact your GP. For more information please see Gov.ie COVID-19 Health Advice.
