Lateral flow tests for travel

26/10/2021

Fully vaccinated passengers and most under 18s arriving from non red-list countries can use a lateral flow test on or before day 2 of their arrival in England.

Bookings for lateral flow tests opened on Friday and can be purchased through the private providers listed on GOV.UK from around £22 per test. NHS tests cannot be used. Passengers must send a photo of their test result to the private provider - failure to do so could result in a fine of £1000– and anyone with a positive result will need to take a free NHS confirmatory PCR test and isolate. Click here for more.
