Travelling to England from a Non-Red List country? Good News…
From the 22 October 2021, the Government is changing the COVID testing rules for travellers to England from non-red list countries. If you’re fully vaccinated, you will no longer have to take a PCR test two days after you get to England, but you must take a lateral flow test instead. You simply take a photo of your passport and test result as evidence.
However, you can’t use an NHS lateral flow kit: you must use a commercial test that is approved by the UK Government, such as the Proviris rapid lateral flow antigen test.
Unvaccinated travellers returning to the UK from non-red list countries will be required to take a day 2 and day 8 PCR tests in all cases.
You can find out more information on the UK Government website. Please remember, it is your responsibility to check and observe all the latest health and country entry requirements.
