This test is required by the UK Government if you are arriving in the UK from overseas. It is a mandatory requirement for those arriving in the UK from a red or amber country to take a Covid-19 PCR test on or before Day 2 of your self-isolation period, and then another test on or after Day 8 (unless you are specifically exempt).


Those arriving in the UK from a green country are required to take a test on Day 2 only. All arrivals must also quarantine for 10 days, either in an approved hotel (if returning from a red list country) or an alternative approved location (if returning from any other country).

Important Information: Day 2 and Day 8 testing is available only to those returning to the UK from a country that is NOT a red list travel ban country. It is your responsibility to check your country of departure on the UK Government's website prior to booking.

If your Day 2 test is positive, it will undergo further testing to identify variants of Covid-19. This is important to prevent new variants from coming into the UK. Your Day 8 test is the final test before the end of your quarantine period.

Fit2Fly24/7 Ltd and its laboratory partners are Government-approved registered private providers for Testing on Day 2 and Day 8. You must order your Day 2 and Day 8 tests before you return to the UK. Failure to do so may incur fines and other penalties. You can order your tests as early as is convenient for you, and we will ship them to you on the required days.

When you order your tests, we will ask you to provide details about yourself and your journey. You will then receive a unique reference number, which you must enter on your passenger locator form before you arrive in the UK.

If you are returning to the UK from a country which is not on the UK Government’s red list, you are eligible to shorten your 10-day self-isolation period with our Test to Release on Day 5. You must still do the Day 8 test.
