Coronavirus (COVID-19): Compulsory Day 2 and 8 Testing
Before you proceed, please carefully read the advice on the GOV.UK website
Before travelling everyone must book and pay for a travel test package, which will include COVID-19 tests to be taken on or before day 2 and on or after day 8 of your quarantine, along with completing a passenger locator form with details of where you will home quarantine when you arrive and the travel test package booking reference number
Day 2 test
You will need to take a COVID-19 test on or before 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. 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.
Day 8 test
You need to take a COVID-19 test on or after 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.
Ending quarantine
If you’ve quarantined for 10 days and got a negative result to both your day 2 and day 8 tests, you may leave the place where you’re quarantining. You can see if you can end your quarantine early through the Test to Release scheme.
You must make sure to order each kit in an individual transaction with an individual checkout or you will invalidate your test travel package status
