Day 2 / Day 8 Government Coronavirus Testing
If you are not fully vaccinated then 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 arrange your testing as part of the package.
It is mandatory for arrivals to the UK who have not been vaccinated 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. 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.
If you are travelling to the UK and you have been fully vaccinated c against Covid-19 then you require a PCR or lateral flow test from an authorised provider, we are awaiting authorisation to deliver Day 2 lateral flow tests but we are authorised to deliver PCR tests here.
- You must have received both doses of the vaccine
- Fully vaccinated with a UK government approved vaccine
- You must have received your second dose of the vaccine at least 14 days before you arrive in the UK
