Home Test Kit
If you are not vaccinated and you arrive in England or Wales from a non-red list country, you must take a test on Day 2 and Day 8 of your 10-day quarantine period by law. Find out how it works on GOV.UK.
Please note: tests for travellers arriving from red countries who are required to stay in a managed quarantine hotel can only be delivered by the official government provider.
Before you travel: check regulations and order tests
There are different regulations depending on the country you’re travelling from. Check the latest information on GOV.UK, and order your test kits before you travel.
Don’t forget to use your order number on your Passenger Locator Form.
Quarantine at home or in your quarantine hotel. If traveling from a non-red list country, you can also still order a Test-to-Release kit.
Your Day 2 sample should arrive at our lab on day 3.
You will receive your results via email within 24-36 hours from when our lab starts processing. However, you’ll need to continue to quarantine.
If the result is positive, you do not have to take your Day 8 test, but you must quarantine for an additional 10 days.
Take your optional Test-to-Release test
This step is not available for Red Country passengers.
If you have ordered an optional Test-to-Release kit, it will arrive today – activate your test, take your sample and return to our lab.
Post it back using a Royal Mail Priority Postbox and continue to quarantine.
Wait for your Test-to-Release results
If you ordered an additional Test-to-Release kit, you can expect an update on your results 24-36 hours.
You must continue to quarantine until you get your results. If negative, you can end quarantine early.
Take your Day 8 test
Even if your Test-to-Release result is negative, you will still need to take your Day 8 test.
Don’t forget to activate your kit and post it back using a Royal Mail Priority Postbox, then continue to quarantine.
Continue to quarantine
If you have not used Test-to-Release, continue to quarantine.
Your Day 8 sample should be at our lab today. You will receive the result via email within 24-36 hours.
If you get a positive test result from your Day 8 test, you will need to quarantine until day 19.
Your household will also need to quarantine until day 19.
If your Day 8 test result is negative, you are free to end quarantine.
Trusted results you can rely on.
