Check-in opening time for the departure from St Helena to London, Stansted on Saturday, 26 June is as previously advised at 5am.

For those passengers who need a pre-departure COVID-19 test (possibly required if you are transiting to another country after landing at Stansted), a testing clinic will be open at the Flu Pod at the General Hospital at 9am on Friday, 25 June. 

If you require a test, bookings should be made with the COVID-19 Coordinator, Grace Richards, via grace.richards@sainthelena.gov.sh or on tel. 22500. A pre-departure COVID-19 test costs £75.00. 

Persons are required to make payment at the Pharmacy, prior to being tested, and will be asked to provide their receipt of payment at the Flu Pod testing clinic. Failure to produce a receipt of payment will result in not receiving a test. 

Test results will be available at the welcome desk at St Helena Airport on Saturday, 26 June.

Due to the change in the schedule, passengers travelling to the UK will now only be able to access their Passenger Locator Form 48 hours before the new arrival date and time at London Stansted. Passengers will also need to check their COVID-19 Test package to ensure that this is still valid.
