What vaccination programmes are recognised in the UK?

Formulations of the 4 listed vaccines, such as AstraZeneca Covishield, AstraZeneca Vaxzevria and Moderna Takeda, qualify as approved vaccines.

You must have had a complete course of an approved vaccine at least 14 days before you arrive in England.

Where 2 doses of a vaccine are required for a full course, you will be able to mix 2 different types of vaccine, for example Oxford/AstraZeneca and Moderna. You are also allowed to have the 2 vaccinations under 2 different approved programmes, for example Australia and Japan, UK and USA, EU and Canada.

What is Test to Release?

Test to release is a government scheme that allows you to end self isolation 4 days early if you have a negative COVID-19 PCR test result. We are a leading approved provider of these tests which are only available privately.

If you book an outbound Fit to Fly test with us, we'll give you a 10% discount on your returning Test to Release Test.

If you're returning to the UK and you want to leave quarantine early you’ll need to take a Test to Release test at least 5 days after your arrival in addition to the mandatory Day 2 & Day 8 Travel Test Package tests. You can book your Travel Test Package with us here.

What if I’m coming from a ‘Red List’ country?

If you arrive from a country that is on the banned list during the last 10 days 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. You can find more information relating to red list countries on the UK government’s website.

Am I allowed to travel to the clinic for my test?

Yes, you can travel to our clinics during self isolation if it’s for the purpose of taking a test but you must return to your quarantine location as soon as this is complete.

Your test will be conducted in one of our clinics in London, Watford, Manchester or Newcastle.

Is it mandatory to purchase a Test to Release test?

No, Test to Release is voluntary if you want to end your self-isolation 4 days early.

Do I still need to self isolate while waiting for my test results?

Yes, you must continue to self-isolate until you have received a negative test result.

Am I guaranteed to end my self-isolation early if I take a Test to Release test?

Yes, if you receive a negative test result for COVID-19. You will not be able to reduce your quarantine if you test positive for COVID-19.

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.

How quickly can I get results back?

By 23:59 for Same Day tests and by 18:00 for Next Day tests. All test samples are analysed 7 days a week and you’ll get your results as soon as they’re released.

What are the possible results of my PCR test?

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, you’ll need to come in again for a retest. We offer all retests free of charge.

Breaking quarantine early without a Test to Release test can result in a fine of up to £10,000.
