Day 2 – Day 8 Tests

***If you do not require any information, are already aware of exactly what test you require and would simply like to purchase your Day 2/Day 8 kit, please scroll down to complete the form.***
Everyone entering England from abroad must take one or more tests for coronavirus (COVID-19). Depending on their vaccination status, people who have arrived into England from abroad need to take a test on either:
 
  • day 2 only
  • day 2 and day 8

 

  • Please note that the day of your arrival in the UK is Day Zero.
  • Please note that a negative result from either of the tests will not affect your quarantine period and you must still remain in self-isolation until the end of the tenth day.
  • You must order your Day 2 & Day 8 tests before your arrival into England, Scotland or Wales, and complete a passenger locator form with details about where you will be self-isolating.
  • If you test positive for Covid-19, you must continue self-isolating for a further 10 days, starting from the date of your positive result.

Visit the government website for full details of what you must do on your return to the UK: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/how-to-quarantine-when-you-arrive-in-england.

1. I am double vaccinated, what test do I require?

All double vaccinated international travellers arriving in England (from countries not on the RED list) are required to do only the Day 2 test. 

2. I am not double vaccinated, what am I required to do?

Travellers must take two Covid-19 PCR tests during a 10 day quarantine period. Take the first test on or before day 2 and the second test on or after day 8 of your quarantine period in your own accommodation.

3. Been to a country or territory on the RED list in the 10 days before you arrive in England?

Before you travel to England you must book a quarantine hotel package, including the Day 2 – Day 8 Test Package.

The Day 2 test has always been a PCR test, although from Sunday 24th October it will change to a Lateral Flow Test.
