[UK] COVID-19 travel testing to/from the UK

Before you book your tests:

If you need an outbound (fit to fly) negative test to enter your destination country:

  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?
  4. does it need to be supervised? 

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).
