What is the Travel Testing Package?

 


This home Covid-19 test kit bundle is for international travellers arriving into England, from a country not on the UK Government's travel ban red list, and are required to quarantine for 10 days. Travellers must complete the mandatory Travel Testing Package COVID-19 tests on day 2 and day 8 of their quarantine.

You must take a COVID-19 test on day 2 for variant surveillance and a test on or after day 8 to check that you do not have COVID-19. If you’ve quarantined for 10 days and received a negative result to both your day 2 and day 8 tests, you may leave the place where you are quarantining.

Travellers can still use the Test to Release for international travel scheme, which allows you to take an additional PCR test on day 5 of quarantine. If your day 2 and day 5 (Test to Release) results are negative, you can end your quarantine period early. However, you still need to take the second Travel Testing Package test on or after day 8 to check that you do not have COVID-19.

Please ensure you are following the UK Government’s guidelines.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the requirements for arriving in England?

On 15th February 2021, the UK Government released the latest information for arriving in England. Everyone allowed to enter England from outside the Common Travel Area (Ireland, the Channel Islands or Isle of Man) must:

  • Quarantine for 10 days
  • Take a coronavirus (COVID-19) test on day 2 and day 8 of quarantining
  • Follow the national lockdown rules

Before arriving in England, travellers must book and pay for a Travel Testing Package, which will include COVID-19 tests to be taken on day 2 and day 8 of quarantine. Travellers must also complete a passenger locator form with details of there you will home quarantine when you arrive and the Travel Testing Package booking reference number.

You will need to take a COVID-19 test on day 2 of your quarantine period. The day of arrival in England will be treated as day zero. This first test is designed to help identify any potentially harmful variants of COVID-19 at the earliest opportunity. Tests will be taken in your own accommodation. You need to take a COVID-19 test on day 8, unless you got a positive result from your day 2 test.

If you have been in or through any of the countries listed on the banned travel red list in the previous 10 days, you will be refused entry to the UK. If you are a British or Irish national, or you have residency rights in the UK, you will be able to enter. You must quarantine in a government approved hotel for 10 days. You cannot use our Travel Testing Package or Test to Release testing services.

Can I end my quarantine early?

Travellers can still use the Test to Release for International Travel scheme. The scheme allows travellers to pay for a private COVID-19 test. If the result is negative, quarantine ends early.

You cannot use the Test to Release until you have been in England for 5 full days.

If you do not want to opt into the Test to Release scheme, you will need to self-isolate for 10 days. You cannot use the Test to Release scheme if you have been in or through any country that is on the travel ban red list in the 10 days before you arrive in England.

If you’re planning to use the Test to Release scheme, you must still take the Travel Testing Package tests on day 2 and on day 8. Even if you get a negative result from your day 2 and day 5 (Test to Release) and are released from self-isolation, you still need to take a test on or after day 8 to check that you do not have COVID-19.

+

What happens if my result is positive?

If you get a positive result from your day 2 test, you must quarantine for 10 days beginning the day after the test was taken (this means until day 13). Your household will also need to quarantine until day 13.

You need to take a COVID-19 test on day 8, unless you got a positive result from your day 2 test.

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.
