If you are part of an approved vaccination programme in one of 50 countries listed by the UK Government, you are exempt from having to take a day 8 test and from quarantine. You are still required to take a day 2 test.

The full list of recognised vaccination programmes and proof of vaccination required is available here

In the event that you are not fully vaccinated or part of the vaccination programmes currently recognised, you must continue to use a day 2 day 8 test, which can be purchased here.

For an overview of the latest requirements, please see the guidance on GOV.UK here

Yes, you can buy several tests at the same time if required. The tests are only assigned to an individual traveller at the point of activation, which is an essential first step when using the test.

We typically process results within 5 hours when submitted during our business hours: Monday – Thursday 9-6pm and Thursday – Sunday between 9-5pm. Any photos submitted outside of these hours will be processed as quickly as possible during the following business day.

We carefully manage the number of tests we sell to match how many tests we can ship and result. We have to check each lateral flow both to validate the result and that it is a unique test.

My date is “sold out.” Will there be more available?

From time to time a test for a sold out “Date of Arrival into the UK” may come back into stock as we process cancellations, but this is a few tests per day

We are continually aiming to increase our capacity, meaning we can add more stock for all sold out dates

When do you add future arrival dates?

We add future arrival dates from time to time when we are happy that we have enough lateral flow test kits scheduled in our manufacturing plans and capacity to process the results for all of the arrival dates.

The UK Government may change the travel rules on a specific date, so we may not release future tests until the new rules are clear.

Leaving TrustPilot reviews asking for more availability

We try to act responsibly in the allocation of affordable UK Arrivals tests. Kindly please do not leave reviews related to test availability or wanting us to release more tests for a given day.

This test will tell you whether or not you are currently carrying SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, regardless of whether you are displaying symptoms. This test is sensitive enough to detect both symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals. If found positive, you should immediately follow the current best practise guidance provided by the NHS, which we will provided to you with your results.

Those testing positive must seek a confirmatory PCR Test through the NHS Test & Trace program.

Performance of the SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Test was established with 605 nasal swabs collected from symptomatic individuals who were suspected of COVID-19. The results show that the relative sensitivity and the relative specificity are as follows:

Relative Sensitivity: 97.1% (93.1 -98.9%)*

Relative Specificity: 99.5% (98.2% – 99.9%)*

*95% Confidence Intervals

Stratification of the positive samples post onset of symptoms between 0-3 days has a positive percent agreement (PPA) of 98.8% (n=81) and 4-7 days has a PPA of 96.8% (n= 62).
Positive samples with Ct value 33 have a higher positive percent agreement (PPA) of 98.7% (n=153).

Limit of Detection (LOD)
The LOD of SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Test was established using limiting dilutions of an inactivated viral sample. The viral sample was spiked with negative human nasal sample pool into a series of concentrations. Each level was tested for 30 replicates. The results show that the LOD is 1.6*10² TCID50/mL.

This means that you probably have the virus.

Even if you have not had symptoms of coronavirus, you must now self-isolate for 10 days from the day after your test date.

You must obtain, take and return a free follow up PCR test from NHS T&T to confirm this. You can access your confirmatory PCR test by visiting or by calling 119. This test will be free of charge will be sent to you as a home test kit, you MUST take this test for this purpose. If this confirmatory test is negative, you no longer need to self-isolate.

You may be contacted for contact tracing and to check that you, and those who you live or are travelling with, are self-isolating.

You must not travel, including to leave the UK, during self-isolation.

Contact 111 if you need medical help. In an emergency dial 999.

  1. The SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Test is for self-testing use only. The test should only be used for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 antigens in nasal swab specimens. The intensity of the test line does not necessarily relate to the SARS-CoV-2 viral load in the specimen.
  2. A false-negative test may result if the level of antigen in a sample is below the detection limit of the test or if the sample was collected incorrectly.
  3. Test results should be looked at with other clinical data available to the doctor.
  4. A positive test result does not rule out co-infections with other pathogens.
  5. A positive test result does not differentiate between SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2.
  6. A negative test result does not rule out other viral or bacterial infections.
  7. A negative result, from an individual having symptoms beyond seven days, should be treated as likely negative and confirmed with a molecular assay, if necessary.
  8. The usability of self-testing by an individual aged under 18 years has not been determined. It is suggested that individual under 18 years of age should be tested by an adult.
  1. Read the SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Test Package Insert carefully before performing a test. Failure to follow directions may produce inaccurate test results.
  2. Do not use the test after the expiration date shown on the pouch.
  3. Do not eat, drink, or smoke 30 minutes before and during the test.
  4. Do not use the test if the pouch is damaged.
  5. All used tests, specimens and potentially contaminated materials should be discarded according to local regulations.
  6. The test line for a high viral load sample may become visible within 15 minutes, or as soon as the sample passes the test line region.
  7. The test line for a low viral load sample may become visible within 30 minutes.
  8. Do not collect the nasal swab specimen if you have a nosebleed.
  9. Small parts are a choking hazard.
