PCR tests for the purpose of travel no longer free for GHA eligible individuals

PCR tests for the purpose of travel will no longer be free for GHA-eligible individuals. The first private travel test will now cost £30 and all tests after that will be charged at £150. A further £30 will be chargeable for the production of the certificate.

Passengers travelling to an airport in England can take a negative antigen test at the COVID Rapid Test facility at the airport, at a cost of £50, inclusive of the certificate.

Travellers who are travelling to countries, which specifically require a PCR test, should contact the GHA’s Public Health Department by emailing covid-travelcertificate@gibraltar.gov.gi with the following information:

  • Full Names (as printed on Passport)
  •  Passport Number
    • Date of Birth
    • Scanned Copy of GHA Card
  • Contact Telephone Number
  • Evidence of the country of destination requiring a PCR test (e.g. electronic flight ticket)
  • Public Health will make arrangements to have a test conducted at the Drive Through Facility, based on the information provided and on verifying the requirement for a PCR certificate for onward travel.

    Certificates will be issued electronically. Payment details will be provided in the response email to the initial application.

    Update

    The Government has issued an amended press release saying that students are exempt for paying the fee for travel certificates.  The statement explains this applies for the students in receipt of a government scholarship. It says the fee will be waived once.
