Passengers should check carefully what timeframes they are required to get a test within to meet local government requirements depending on their destination.

For those departing passengers, please check the Foreign Commonwealth Office website for information on the requirements at your destination. Please ensure when booking your test that you allow enough time for the results to be returned before you travel.

Passengers arriving from a country not on the UK Travel Corridors List can shorten their mandatory 10-day quarantine period by completing a negative COVID-19 test from Day 5 onwards. Please check government website for full guidance. Please note it is best to book your test prior to arriving in the UK as you will have to reference this test on your Passenger Locator Form when arriving.
