You can find all the information you need about choosing the right tests for your travels, booking your tests and when to take your tests using our updated travel planner. Any future changes to travel tests rules will be reflected on our website as soon as they are confirmed by the UK Government.
The Day 2 Covid test is designed to keep you and your contacts safe after travelling to the UK. If you get a positive result from your day 2 test, you must self-isolate for 10 days starting from the day that the test was conducted. People you live with or have travelled with should also self-isolate for 10 days from the day after your positive Covid test.
You do not need to take any kind of covid test if you are fully vaccinated. If you are unvaccinated or partially vaccinated, you need to take the Day 2 PCR test instead.
As of 11 February 2022, Day 2 test must be a PCR test for all unvaccinated and partially vaccinated arrivals in the UK. The Day 2 test must be taken on or before day 2 of arrival.
Our Day 2 Lateral Flow tests cost just £17. This includes free standard delivery (delivery in 3-5 working days).
We recommend ordering your Day 2 tests as soon as possible to guarantee that you reserve your test kit. Order a Day 2 Lateral Flow Test

Your Day 2 Lateral Flow test kit will include instructions, a cotton swab, test liquid, and your lateral flow cassette.
You will perform your samples using a gentle and non-invasive swab. We will provide you with clear instructions on how to take your swab in your test kits.
Negative lateral flow test - You do not have any evidence of an active infection.
Positive lateral flow test - The Covid-19 virus has been detected on your swab.
Inconclusive/Needs Repeated - Very infrequently, your swab result will need to be repeated. This may occur due to poor sample taking techniques. If your result is inconclusive, we will offer you a replacement test.
Anyone who receives a positive result from their lateral flow test will be required to self-isolate and to take a free PCR test to confirm the result.
No. Only PCR test results can be sequenced. All positive test results from day 2 Lateral Flow tests are reported to PHE and will be given a free follow up PCR test on the NHS. These PCR tests may then be sequenced to look for any potential new variants of Covid 19.
The Day 2 tests are mandatory for all arrivals entering the UK. Fully vaccinated travellers can take a Day 2 Lateral Flow Test. Unvaccinated and partially vaccinated travellers must take Day 2 and Day 8 PCR Tests . You may face a penalty if you fail to test for Covid-19 on or before day 2 of your arrival. Please see the UK government guidance for more information.
