What does the UK's "Traffic Light System" for travel mean and what do I have to do?

As overseas travel can take place from 17 May, the government has devised a traffic light system which classifies international travel destinations based on Covid-19 risks. Countries may be red, amber plus, amber, or green. Each colour corresponds to specific rules when returning to the UK.


What do the three colours of the UK’s ‘Traffic Light System’ for travel mean?

  • Red: You must pay for a 10-day stay in a managed quarantine hotel, as well as a pre-departure test and two PCR tests upon return to the UK (Day 2 & Day 8).
  • Amber Plus: You will need to quarantine for 10 days, as well as taking a pre-departure test, and two PCR tests on return to the UK (Day 2 & Day 8). Optionally you can take a test on Day 5 (Test to Release) to leave quarantine early.
  • Amber: You will need to quarantine for 10 days, as well as taking a pre-departure test, and two PCR tests on return to the UK (Day 2 & Day 8). Optionally you can take a test on Day 5 (Test to Release) to leave quarantine early. Individuals vaccinated in the UK, EU, or USA are exempt from quarantine but must still take a pre-departure test and Day 2 PCR test on return to the UK.
  • Green: You will not need to quarantine on return, but you must take a pre-departure test, and a PCR test on return to the UK on Day 2.


How will the government decide which countries go on the green, amber or red lists?

Countries are assigned to the four lists, based on a range of Covid-19 health metrics, which include figures on population vaccination, infection rates and prevalence of variants. The different traffic light statuses indicate the risk in each destination and the associated tests and quarantine periods required. Lists are reassessed every three weeks, to account for changes in each country’s COVID-19 situation.

What is the difference between the PCR Fit to Fly & Amber List travel pack and the PCR Fit to Fly & Amber List travel pack plus?

The Travel Pack Plus contains an optional Day 5 test to release, which we recommend if you need to be out of quarantine ASAP.

What are the Day 2 & 8 tests?

If you’re arriving in the UK from abroad you’ll need to quarantine for 10 days and take a Covid-19 PCR test on or before Day 2 and on or after Day 8 of your self-isolation. These tests are compulsory for all international arrivals outside of the UK, Ireland, Isle of Man and the Channel Islands.

What is the antigen return test for?

All our Amber List Travel bundles come with a return antigen test to be taken pre-return to the UK. Your result will be photo verified using our test registration portal accessible via your booking email or QR code in the instruction manual that comes with your test. Please remember to take this test abroad with you or you will need to source another one locally at your destination.

How is a PCR test taken?

A throat and nose swab sample is taken using the kit provided. We have clear instructions on how to do this that come with your test bundle, with video tutorials available from the links in the instruction leaflet.

Yes, you must still complete your Day 8 test even if you have ended quarantine due to early release. Not completing your mandatory tests could put you in breach of government regulations with a possible fine.

How is an Antigen test taken?

We use a range of antigen tests certified for home use. Our tests are predominantly swab based but we also sell saliva based antigen tests when available. All home antigen tests are self administered using the instructions provided with the test.

What happens if I register the wrong test type during the registration process?

If you have accidentally registered the wrong barcode or test type please contact our customer support team so we can assist you in registering your test correctly.

How quickly can I get my PCR results back?

For postal returned samples you will get your result within 24 hours of our lab receiving your sample (please be sure to make the Priority Post Box cut-off time otherwise your sample is sent the following day by Royal Mail). We also offer in-clinic testing with faster results (same day services available). All test samples are analysed 7 days a week. We recommend you check your specific destination requirements here.

Can I use a Day 2 or Day 8 test as a Fit to Fly?

No - The various tests analyse different outcomes which are specific to that test type. If you register the wrong test type your results may not be valid. The Day 2 & 8 tests are government mandated and not doing them upon your return could put you in breach of government regulations with a possible fine.

How quickly can I get my Antigen results back?

Our lateral flow antigen test is self-administered, and your results appear on the test cassette within 20 minutes of taking your sample. If you are using this test for your UK return Fit to Fly proof, please be sure to register your results online to obtain your verified results certificate required for travel. The instructions to do this are contained in your confirmation email and via QR code links in the instruction manuals that come with all our tests.

Can I get a refund for unused tests in a bundle?

We regret that due to government guidelines we are unable to issue refunds for tests purchased online. Day 2 and 8 tests in particular contain booking reference numbers for passenger locator forms and those are non-retractable and form part of the service we provide. Other test types, whilst unable to be refunded may be used at a later date by contacting support and providing details of your journey when you are ready to use them.

How do I receive my results and what information is shown on the certificate?

All registered test results will be sent to you securely by text and email including a PDF you can download. Your certificate will show your full name, date of birth, ID credentials, date and time of test, and issue date. It will also be signed by our Medical Director, Dr. Jeremy Harris GMC: 3076541.

The Amber list travel bundles contain PCR and Antigen Tests - what is the difference?

A PCR test is a nucleic acid test that looks for the genetic code (RNA) of the virus. It will confirm if you currently have the virus and provide the most accurate test results. A PCR test is the most widely accepted COVID-19 test, though a small number of countries accept Antigen tests pre-departure. An Antigen test is less accurate than a PCR test as it looks for viral surface proteins of the virus. Both tests will confirm if you currently have the virus.

What are the possible results of my PCR and Antigen tests?

Negative: You do not have any evidence of an active COVID-19 infection.

Positive: The virus that causes COVID-19 has been detected on your swab. You will need to self-isolate for 10 days in accordance with government guidance.

Unclear: On rare occasions, it might not be possible to say if you had the virus when your test was done. In the event of this happening please contact us, quote your order number and we will arrange a retest.

How do the Day 2 & Day 8 PCR tests differ from normal PCR tests?

The Day 2 & Day 8 tests are the most accurate PCR tests available and are mandatory when coming back to the UK because of the growing threat from new variants of COVID-19. The tests look for 2 genes rather than 1 which makes it a more complicated test and, if the Day 2 test is found to be positive it is sent for genome sequencing to identify particular variants of concern.

What happens if I test positive in either of the Day 2 or Day 8 tests?

If your Day 2 or Day 8 test results are positive then you must quarantine for an additional 10 days from the day you took the test – further advice will be provided with your test results. Please see the government website for more information.

What happens if I test unclear in either of the Day 2 or Day 8 tests?

Your coronavirus test result is unclear. It’s not possible to say if you had the virus when the test was done. This is because it’s possible that 1 of the genes specific to the COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) virus has been found.

This can be due to several different reasons including inadequate sample collection, very early stage-infection, or very late stage-infection (i.e. you may have recently tested positive for COVID-19).

Both gene targets must be identified to declare a positive result. We follow retest procedures where our tests produce an unclear result, however, sometimes even with repeat testing the result remains the same.

Day 2 Unclear Result

If you took this test on day 2 of your quarantine you must continue to quarantine until you have completed the 10-day quarantine period AND received a negative test result for a test taken on day 8.

You may be contacted 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.

You MUST still undertake your Day 8 test.

Day 8 Unclear Result

Even if you have not had symptoms of coronavirus, you must quarantine for a further 10 days, beginning the day after the test was taken.

As this test was taken on day 8 of arriving in the UK a further 10 days means you will need to continue quarantine until day 19 after arriving in the UK.

People you live with or are travelling with will also need to quarantine for a further 10 days (until day 19), irrespective of any test result they may have recently had.

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.

Are you approved by the UK Government and are you accredited?

We’re a leading UK government approved provider of all private COVID-19 tests. Our tests are analysed at UKAS accredited labs that comply to ISO15189 and ISO17025 standards.

Are PCR and Antigen tests safe for children?

Yes, children of any age can take a PCR or Antigen test, however children under the age of 18 to have parental consent. Please check your point of destination as different countries have different requirements for children.

Is your PCR test accepted worldwide?

Yes, it’s accepted by all international destinations. Our real time PCR (RT-PCR) method is fully certified and accredited by Public Health England. This test is trusted by airlines and embassies.
