Requirements for travel from the UK are subject to change. To be assured of up to date information, please refer to the links below. If in any doubt then please get in touch.
The Australian authorities provide an ‘Information for international travellers fact sheet’ to all travellers on arrival in Australia. This provides information on current requirements
For advice and measures at individual airports, see their websites.
Bright World has found two companies which have clinics in the UK, that can assist. Depending on where the clinic is, we can find one nearer to a student's school and make sure the timings will work out with their flight departure times.
Clinics will ask for parental permission to undertake the test and share details. Bright World will send a link to the form to parents for completion or will assist them to write an email.
Tests should be booked by overseas parents, as special consents are asked for which we are not qualified to give. Once the test is booked, we can arrange an escorted visit to the clinic. For younger students, our Bright World Buddies and trusted drivers have stayed with the child while they are having the test.
REMEMBER TO TAKE YOUR PASSPORT WITH YOU TO THE CLINIC
We are pleased we have been able to assist and get students home.
Bright World can help to recommend an accredited test centre, please contact us for more information. We have had good experiences with Corona Test Centre and would recommend parents use this one to make appointments. They have four clinics near and in London.
We have also met with Sirkkanetworks.com Sirkka offers a nationwide COVID-19 testing service.
They provide tests in clinics in London, Cambridge, Manchester, Chelmsford, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen, on-site/home visits by medical professionals and by post to anywhere in the UK.
We are also recommending Concepto Clinics that have 15 clinics across the UK and accept students who are under 16 for RT-PCR Tests.
Here is the list of all the UKAS Accredited Organisations offering Covid-19 tests. Please note that this list is not maintained by Bright World.
Su Warren, Director of Guardianships and Operations, has become our resident expert on testing and has helped several students get home safely already. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
