You’ll also might need to know:

  • If you need an outbound negative test to enter your destination country. If yes:
  1. what type do you need (a PCR or Rapid Antigen)
  2. how many hours in advance (eg. 48hrs or 72hrs)
  3. And is this based on your arrival or departure time?

If you're unsure about any of the guidance, please visit the UK's FCDO website to find out (for legal reasons, you'll have to check this yourself).

Chronomics is a UK government-approved testing provider. However, you are responsible for checking which tests are required by your destination country and selecting the correct package for your return to the UK.
