RETURNING TO ENGLAND
As part of the Government Mandatory testing requirements for international arrivals, the UK government has announced that from 24 October 2021 fully vaccinated international passengers arriving in England from countries not on the red list can take a Day 2 lateral flow test.
You must book, pay for and take one Rapid Lateral Flow (Antigen) Test on or before Day2 after you arrive in England.
You do not need to quarantine unless the test result is positive.
Upon purchase of this Day2 test kit, a BOOKING REFERENCE will be emailed to you. You will need this BOOKING REFERENCE when filling in the PASSENGER LOCATOR FORM within 48 hrs of your return to England.
Home testing: The home self testing swab involves the swabbing of the tonsils and with the same cotton bud, you do a nasal swab as far as is comfortable. Instructions leaflet will come with the test kit.
Registering and receiving the result: You will need your unique 16 digit activation code (posted with the test kit) to register, follow the process online and you will get the result within 30mins.
If you are not fully vaccinated, you will have to purchase a Day2 and a Day8 PCR test and self quarantine for 10days on arrival in England.
