How it works
Order your Chronomics Day 2/Day 8 COVID-19 testing bundle before you fly to the UK from abroad. The UK Government requires both tests to be taken during your 10-day isolation period, unless you have a special exemption.
Buy your test bundle online in advance. We just need your flight details and your UK isolation address, then we’ll send you a booking reference to use on your Passenger Locator Form.
Fly to the UK, self-isolate and we’ll send your first test to the address you’ve given us straight away, whether it’s an isolation hotel (if you’ve come from a ‘red list’ country) or you’re self-isolating in the community. The day you land in the UK is Day 0.
Take your first test as soon as it arrives, following the simple instructions in the swab PCR kit. Register your test online and return it to us in the prepaid parcel provided - no medical staff, no hassle.
You’ll get an email to view your result online, within 24-36 hours of your sample arriving at our lab. Keep isolating, even if your test’s negative. If it’s positive, you’ll need to isolate for 10 days from when you took the test (which may be longer than your planned isolation).
Your second test will arrive on Day 8 (or as soon as possible after that). Again follow the intuitive instructions, register online and send it back. Easy! **Remember: You still need to do your Day 8 test, even if you’ve registered for Test To Release to end your quarantine early.**
You’ll get another email to view your result online, within 24-36 hours of your sample arriving at our lab. If your test’s negative again – good news! You’re free to end your self-isolation period on Day 10.
Do you want to end your 10-day isolation early?
If you’re travelling to England and want to reduce your quarantine period from 10 days to just 7, you should also order a Test To Release kit from Chronomics. This is a saliva test so just spit in a tube with no invasive swab, but it must be done in addition to the Day 2/Day 8 tests.
You can’t use the Test To Release scheme if you’re travelling from a ‘red list’ country (please refer to the government’s latest list here).
