ANNEX B

Pre-departure COVID-19 Testing Requirement

You will need to buy a pre-departure COVID-19 test and take this test within 48hours of your arrival. This requirement does not apply to any fully vaccinated passenger who has not been to a country or territory in the Red List in the 10 days preceding their arrival in Gibraltar.

When boarding your plane, you will need to provide proof that you have taken the test, and that the result of the test was negative. You will also be required to upload your test result on the Gibraltar Passenger Locator Form. You may also be asked to provide proof of a negative test when you arrive in Gibraltar.

 

The type of test you will need to buy

The test you buy must meet standards of ≥97% specificity and ≥80% sensitivity at viral loads above 100,000 copies/ml.

Suitable tests include:

  • a nucleic acid test, including a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test or derivative technologies, including loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) tests
  • an antigen test, such as a test from a lateral flow device, though many lateral flow devices may not meet the standards needed – you must check the test you buy meets standards of ≥97% specificity and ≥80% sensitivity at viral loads above 100,000 copies/ml

You may not be able to travel if the test you buy does not meet these standards.

A list of private providers of COVID-19 testing in the UK can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/list-of-private-providers-of-coronavirus-testing/list-of-private-providers-of-coronavirus-testing If you are travelling from outside the United Kingdom, the foreign travel advice pages on gov.uk will have the latest updates about where you can buy COVID-19 tests in the country you are travelling from.

 

What your test result must include

Your test result must be in either English, French or Spanish.

You must provide your original test result certificate. This can be a paper test result, or an original result you have had in an email or text message.

The test result must include:

  • your name, which should match the name on your travel documents
  • your date of birth or age
  • the negative result of the test
  • the date the test sample was collected or received by the company or business who did the test
  • the name of the company or business who did the test and their contact details
  • the name of your test device

If your test result does not include all these things, you may not be able to travel to Gibraltar.

 

Positive test results

If your test result is positive, you must not travel. You must follow local rules and guidance for positive COVID-19 cases.

If the result of your test is not clear, you must take another test.

 

Previous positive test results

If you have recently tested positive for coronavirus and more than 10 days have passed since your positive test, you may be concerned that you will test positive pre-departure and this will prevent you from travelling. Evidence of prior infection does not remove the requirement to provide a negative pre-departure test to travel to Gibraltar, or once in Gibraltar. This is to mitigate against the risk of re-infection with a different variant of coronavirus.

If you have had Covid-19 in the last 90 days, we would recommend that you select a lateral flow device (LFD) for pre-departure testing, as LFDs are significantly less likely to give persistent positives for someone who has tested positive within the previous 90 days. As above, LFDs must meet the minimum standards of 97% specificity and 80% sensitivity.

 

Children

Children under 12 do not need to take a COVID-19 test before travelling (under 8 if the child has been to a country or territory in the Red List in the 10 days preceding their arrival in Gibraltar). Children aged between 12 and 18 must take a COVID-19 test before travelling. Proof of the child's negative test result must be shown by an adult travelling with the child upon arrival in Gibraltar.

The requirement to take a pre-departure COVID-19 test does not apply to any fully vaccinated passenger who has not been to a country or territory in the Red List in the 10 days preceding their arrival in Gibraltar.
