Hello, I am looking for a private clinic in Torremolinos, where io can get an rapid Antigen covid test with certificate for flying back to the UK

I would like to book in advance prier to arriving beginning of November 2021 

I have checked online, but most clinics are written in Spanish. I am aware you can book at Malaga airport, but for convenience I would rather book a local clinic where I will be staying. Any comments are app

Don't panic they are not that busy, 'take care on line some are bogus sites'. Also any Pharmacy when you are there will recommend the nearest one, Pal of mine walked in a clinic yesterday and got a test a PCR test within10 minutes.

Have the rules changed whilst I have been here in Spain? I understood that after the 4th October you do not need an antigen test to fly back to the UK but, you do need the 2 day test after arrival!

Hello yes thank you for your message 

Yes I discovered that after I wrote on this post 

For UK apparently that rule  charged on 4th October 

From the end of term schooling apparently then the day 2 test after you arrive home, gets change from a PCR test to a cheaper Lateral flow test

So travelling abroad is getting easier 

Many thanks again

Thanks for the reply I thought Boris had decided on yet another change. My day 2 tests are already booked and the kits are at home waiting for me.

Do you mind if I can ask, your day two tests you have already are they the lateral flow test

It’s just that I’m not going away until 1st November 

And I’ve been checking the clinics online to order one for coming back, but it seems day 2 tests are still showing PCR which as said would necessary by end of term.

I think you are over worrying about booking in advance, the clinics are not that busy, a relative of mine walked in off the street and got a test done in 10 minutes. (Fuengirola) Also take care with 'on-line sites' some are bogus, any local pharmacy will tell you the nearest testing place when here in Spain. Enjoy your trip.
