Manchester Arndale Test Centre

Manchester Arndale COVID-19 Test Site

 

Many governments have implemented testing regimes to minimise the spread of COVID-19. If you’re a traveller, you're often required to follow strict testing requirements to ensure you are healthy before you travel overseas or within specific local regions. Whether you’re boarding a plane for work or about to go on a luxury cruise, a negative COVID-19 test result is required before you can begin your trip.

Navigating these requirements is difficult, which is why our goal at ExpressTest is to make the testing process easy for our clients. Find out how to get a COVID-19 test effortlessly completed at the Manchester Arndale testing site.

Our testing site at Manchester Arndale has a variety of COVID-19 testing options. Please note that these tests are only available as walk-in tests (excluding home test kits).

RT-PCR individual tests

Most governments and countries rely on PCR tests to verify whether an individual is infected with COVID-19. The PCR test is the current gold standard in COVID-19 diagnosis, as it offers the most accurate results of all available COVID-19 tests.

Please note that you will need to make separate bookings for an RT-PCR Fit to Fly test and a Test to Release.
