Day 2 COVID-19 Test Package For Fully Vaccinated Travellers & Green List Arrivals

Book your Day 2 COVID-19 PCR test package now, which is compulsory upon arrival to England for fully vaccinated international travellers and also for travellers from green list countries.

 

Day 2 COVID-19 Test Package For Travellers

If you arrive in the UK from 26th July 2021 from an amber list country, and you are fully vaccinated, you no longer need to quarantine just like green list arrivals. However, you must purchase a Day 2 test as an international arrival, to be done after you arrive in the UK.

This new scheme applies only to travellers who:

  • Are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 but both vaccines must have been done only by the UK, EU or USA
  • Have had their second COVID-19 vaccine no less than 14 days prior to their arrival date in England
  • Are children aged 5 to 17 and are UK residents (even if not fully vaccinated, children who are UK residents only need to do the Day 2 test)
  • Have not arrived from France. Even if you are fully vaccinated by the UK, EU or USA, and you are a UK citizen, you must quarantine for 10 days if you are arriving from France and book a Day 2 and 8 testing package. You may also opt in for “Test to release”, to reduce your quarantine period from 10 days.

Please remember, that if you are arriving from a green list country, you also only need to purchase a Day 2 test and you do not need to quarantine. This applies to both vaccinated and unvaccinated travellers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What should I do before travelling to the UK?

All UK international arrivals travelling from countries which are not “red list” countries which have a travel ban, must do the following:

  • Take a COVID-19 test and get a negative test result 3 days before travelling to the UK
  • Book the Day 2 and Day 8 travel testing package which is 2 COVID-19 PCR tests; one to be taken on Day 2 and another on Day 8 of quarantine
  • If you are travelling from a green list country, you only need to purchase the Day 2 PCR test to test for COVID-19 and you do NOT need to quarantine
  • If you are fully vaccinated by the UK, EU or USA (with your second vaccine done no less than 14 days before your arrival date in England), then you only need to purchase the Day 2 PCR test to test for COVID-19, and you do NOT need to quarantine
  • Obtain the booking reference number for Day 2 and 8 testing (or Day 2 test only) which must be provided on your passenger locator form before travelling to England
  • Quarantine for 10 days since arrival in the UK if you’re arriving from a country that is not on the green list or you are not fully vaccinated by the UK, EU or USA (or if your second vaccine dose was taken less than 14 days prior to the date you arrive in England)
  • Follow the national social distancing rules in the UK
  • You must follow separate guidance if you’ve been in a country where travel to the UK is banned. These countries are on the ‘red list’. See the red list countries.

There is further information on the government website on How to Quarantine When You Arrive in England.  Please read the guidance and note that the rules may be different if you are travelling from Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland.

Q. How can I book a Day 2 test package?

You can book the Day 2 PCR travel testing package with us by calling us on +44(0)203 370 4034 . The package price is £140 for the Day 2 test. You should book and pay for the Day 2 travel testing package before travelling to England, as you will need to provide a booking reference on your passenger locator form. The Day 2 test is a PCR test for COVID-19 and you must do this test by law. The test will be provided for you to do yourself, and you simply send them back to the lab using the provided postage envelope pack and prepaid Tracked 24 label. You need to post your sample in any Priority Postbox found across the UK. Find your nearest Priority Postbox by following this link.

Q. When do I take the Day 2 test?

Your date of arrival in England is considered Day 0. The next day is Day 1. You must take the Day 2 COVID-19 PCR test on or before Day 2.

If you had to book a Day 2 and Day 8 testing package, the Day 8 COVID-19 PCR test on or after Day 8. The COVID-19 PCR test for “Test to Release” should be taken on Day 5 – no earlier than 120 hours after the time you arrived in England, if you opted in for the “Test to Release” PCR test scheme.

Q. I am arriving from a country on the green list. What do I need to do?

If you are arriving from a country on the green list, we’ll provide you with a Day 2 PCR test only. This applies to fully vaccinated travellers and to unvaccinated travellers. Passengers arriving from green list countries do not need to quarantine upon arrival, but they still need to take a Day 2 PCR test for surveillance purposes.

Q. I am arriving from an amber list country but I travel back before my Day 8 test. What should I do and can I purchase only a Day 2 test?

In this case, the current advice to most passengers has been that you can travel back sooner and do not need to do the Day 8 PCR test. However, the rules are changing frequently, so please check the government website  and email dhsctesttrace.customerfeedbackteam@nhs.net if there are a set of circumstances that are not explained on the government website.
