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

As of October 4th, the government has changed the current traffic light system which classifies international travel destinations based on Covid-19 risks. The rules for international travel to England have changed from the red, amber, green traffic light system to a single red list of countries and simplified travel measures for arrivals from the rest of the world.


What do the different categories 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). You will only be allowed to enter the UK if you are a British or Irish national or you have residence rights in the UK.
  • Rest of the world (unvaccinated): 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.
  • Rest of the world (vaccinated): You will not need to quarantine on return, and you do not need to take a pre-departure test. You are required to take a PCR test on or before Day 2 of your return to the UK.


How will the government decide which countries go on the red list?

Countries are assigned to the red lists, based on a range of Covid-19 health metrics, which include figures on population vaccination, infection rates and prevalence of variants. The red light category indicates a high level of risk in a given 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.

Before you travel to England you must
On arrival in England you must
Red List
  • Complete a passenger locator form
  • Take a COVID-19 test
  • Book a quarantine hotel package (including 2 COVID-19 tests)
  • Quarantine in a managed hotel, including 2 COVID-19 tests
Amber List
  • Complete a passenger locator form
  • Take a COVID-19 test
  • Book Day 2 and Day 8 COVID-19 travel tests (to be taken after arrival in England)
  • Quarantine at home/place you are staying for 10 days
  • Take a COVID-19 test on/before Day 2 and on/after Day 8
  • You may be able to end quarantine early through ‘Test to Release’
Green List
  • Complete a passenger locator form
  • Take a COVID-19 test
  • Book a Day 2 COVID-19 test
  • Take a COVID-19 test on/before Day 2 after you arrive
  • You do not need to quarantine unless the test result is positive.

How is the test taken?

A throat and nose swab sample is taken by one of our healthcare professionals at one of our clinics in London, Watford, Manchester and Newcastle.

Where can I get a test?

You can book a PCR test online for any of our clinics in London, Watford, Manchester and Newcastle. At each clinic we have healthcare professionals who administer your tests.

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.

How soon before my flight should I be tested?

Time windows are normally given by your airline or the country you are flying to. For example, an antigen test is usually required within a 48 hour time window meaning that your swab needs to be taken within 48 hours of your flight. We recommend you check your specific destination requirements here.

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

Your 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, passport number, date and time of test, and issue date. It will also be signed by our Medical Director, Dr. Jeremy Harris GMC: 3076541.

What are the possible results of my Fit to Fly test?

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

Positive: The virus that causes COVID-19 has been detected in your test. 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, you’ll need to come in again for a retest. We offer all retests free of charge.

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

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

Do I get certification documents with my my Test Result Certificate?

The Certificate of Accreditation of the lab and other approval documents, as well as the clinical validation data for the test itself are provided to you with your test result certificate in the email you receive. These comply with the necessary requirements for international travel even to very strict destinations like Hong Kong, China, South Korea & Japan.
