These are the Covid PCR tests for those arriving back from the ‘UK Amber list‘ of Countries for those who are UK residents 5-17 years old or UK residents 18+ years old and fully vaccinated with an NHS administered vaccine for more than 14 days after the second dose.
TO CHECK WHICH COUNTRIES ARE IN EACH TRAFFIC LIGHT, PLEASE VISIT GOV.UK
From 4th Oct 2021, Travellers coming or transiting from all other countries not listed at Red Countries will only have to do a Day 2 Covid PCR test if any of the following apply:
- they are UK residents between 5-17 years old or
- are UK residents 18+ years and fully vaccinated with an NHS administered vaccine for more than 14 days from the second dose or
- are fully vaccinated from the EU/EFTA and USA. Please see link for more information
We anticipate these rules will be changing at the end of October.
If the above does not apply to you and you will need a test on day 2 and day 8.
