Day 2 / Day 8 Government Coronavirus Testing

When you arrive in England you will have to quarantine either at home or where you are planning on staying, unless you are travelling from one of the “red list” banned countries in which case you will have to pre-book into a registered quarantine hotel. If you have to stay at a quarantine hotel, then they will sort out your testing as part of the package.

It is mandatory for everyone who does not have a job which is exempt to quarantine for 10 days and be tested on or before day 2 and on or after day 8 after arriving in England. The day you arrive by the way counts as day 0, land on Monday and Tuesday is day 1. If both tests are negative, then on day 11 you have completed your quarantine and you will be subject to the same Covid restrictions that apply to the general population at the time.

Your day 2 and day 8 test can only be carried out by someone like The London General Practice who is suitably qualified and are on the government website as an authorised provider. If you leave quarantine early or ignore a positive test you could face a fine of up to £10,000.

Vaccinated travellers from Amber List countries

If you are travelling from an amber list country and you have been vaccinated against Covid-19 then you only require the Day 2 test and will not need to quarantine at all unless that test is positive.

However:

  • You must have received both doses of the vaccine
  • Fully vaccinated with a UK, US or EU administered vaccine*
  • You must have received your second dose of the vaccine at least 14 days before you arrive in the UK

For more information see the UK Government website here

*US and EU vaccines applicable from 4am Monday 2nd August 2021. Please check the guidelines for the country you are travelling from.
