The UK Government requires non-vaccinated travellers arriving from non-red route countries to quarantine at home or in the place you are staying for 10 days.  You must take a Covid-19 PCR test on day 2 and day 8 after arriving in England .

You are considered non-vaccinated in the UK if:

•          You have not had a complete course of an approved vaccine at least 14 days before arriving in England (the day of your final dose does not count)

•          The vaccine has not been administered under the UK vaccination programme OR

•          The vaccine is not part of an overseas vaccination programme with an approved proof of vaccination for travel to the UK 

If you are unsure, please check here

Should you wish to leave quarantine early, you can take an optional additional Test to Release PCR test, on day 5 and leave quarantine once a negative certificate has been received.  If you do this, you are still required to complete your Day 8 test as well.  Day 5 tests can be done in our clinics, but we do not offer them as self-collection kits as the results need to be very rapid to make them worthwhile.

If you are not considered fully vaccinated, you simply order a Day 2 & Day 8 bundle, we send a Day 2 PCR kit and a Day 8 PCR kit to your UK address.

Complete the Day 2 test following the easy-to-follow instructions.  Register the test online with the link sent to you with your purchase confirmation.  Take the sample to a post office and post it to our laboratory.  The kit comes with a pre-addressed envelope and includes return postage.  

Follow the same process with your Day 8 kit on day 8; this must not be activated before day 8 as that would invalidate it.

Receive your results and certificates, available within one day of receipt of your sample by our laboratory.

  • UK Government-listed and UKAS-approved provider for mandatory day 2 tests.
  • One-day turnaround at the laboratory.
  • Real-Time PCR.
  • CE marked assay approved by Public Health England.

It is your responsibility to check the UK Government updates regarding red route and non-red route countries, approved vaccination programmes and other regulations at Gov.UK

Individuals must order each kit in their own name. Therefore we have limited order quantities of each product type to one per order.

It is your responsibility to buy the correct test for your travel circumstances.

Doctorcall cannot be held responsible if there are any delays with the postal service which may result in a delay in either you receiving your test or the sample being returned to the lab.
