No-stress testing for COVID-19 travel to/from the UK

Before you book your tests:

Vaccinated travellers returning to the UK must have at least a a Day 2 lateral flow kit
Unvaccinated travellers returning to the UK must have at least a Test To Return kit, a Day 2 PCR kit, a Day 8 PCR kit

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).
