The Covidfly “Test to Release COVID-19 PCR” test is suitable for those who wish to take part in the UK government ‘Test to Release’ scheme to reduce their quarantine period after international travel. This is a convenient home testing kit that can be ordered well in advance of your return to the UK. Kits that are currently being despatched are valid for over 12 months. Once used, the sample must be returned to the laboratory immediately.
Travellers arriving in the UK from certain countries are subject to a quarantine period of self-isolation. Under the government’s Test to Release scheme, travellers from Non-Red List countries can conduct an additional Day 5 PCR test which if negative releases them from quarantine.
Negative Test to Release tests are not a substitute for Day 2 and Day 8 tests which much also be purchased. A negative Test to Release test simply enables a release from 10 days of quarantine.
You will receive a DHSC booking reference (Covidfly order number), this number needs to be listed on your passenger locator form. You must complete your passenger locator form in the 48 hours prior to arriving in the UK.
