How it works

STEP 1: Select the tests that you need for your trip.
We’ve provided a simple check list to help you determine which tests you need and to add them to your cart and check out. Be sure to complete your purchase at least two weeks before your trip to ensure availability. Understand the testing requirements for travel to the UK if you’re vaccinated or non-vaccinated; click here for more information.
STEP 2: We will deliver your tests to you before your departure. Take them with you on your trip.
We will ship your tests and instructions for each test to your home address in the United States. RT-PCR test kits for Day 2, 5 and 8 are delivered to you with a pre-paid return shipping label addressed to our partner lab in the UK. Be sure to take these tests with you to the UK. Just drop your test kit in the Royal Mail when it's time to take your test and you’ll receive your results within 24-48 hours from the time the lab receives each kit.
STEP 3: Complete the UK passenger locator form
Once you've received your test kits, complete the UK passenger locator form 48 hours before your trip. We'll send you a test reference number for each Day 2, or Day 2 & Day 8 that needs to be included on your passenger locator form.
STEP 4: Take your tests for prearrival, Day 2, Day 8, or optional Day 5 Test-to-Release and return to the lab as needed
Your shipment comes with instructions for when to take each test and each test comes with its own instructions. Take each test at the correct time for pre-departure, Day 2, Day 8, optional Test-to-Release, and return testing as instructed. The pre-departure and return tests must be oberved with video observation.
STEP 5: Receive your results
You will receive a result for each test that you take. Your results come in both a PDF and COVID Credentials™ Health Pass format so you can share them with anyone you want.

Travelers who are not fully vaccinated or cannot present proof of vaccination must take the Day 8 test and quarantine in place for 10 days in addition to taking the Day 2 test. The quarantine period can be reduced by getting a negative result using the optional Test-to-Release scheme on Day 5 of your arrival.
