Now that overseas travel has resumed, you may find that you require a PCR test and a laboratory certificate to prove that you are Covid19 free and fit to fly.
Countries across the Globe have enforced local immigration restrictions and they recommend that people travelling need to have a PCR test carried out 48, 72-96 hours prior to travelling! Screen4 can provide you with the testing and the certification for this.
Advice for testing:
You will need to check the entry requirements for the country you are travelling to, you can do this here:
It is the consumers responsibility to ensure that you check the requirements for the country you are travelling to and to ensure that your sample is taken within the given time frame. Screen4 can not advise you of this and are not liable for any tests carried out outside of your travel requirement window.
If you are travelling abroad to a Green listed country it is a legal requirement for you to book and take a Covid-19 PCR test on Day 2 of your arrival into the UK.
Children aged 4 and under do not need to take this test.
You do not need to quarantine unless the test result is positive.
You must quarantine if NHS Test & Trace informs you that you travelled to England with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.

When you arrive in England, you must travel directly to the place you’re staying and not leave until 10 days have passed. The quarantine period starts the day you arrive in England and ends 10 days after the day you arrived. This period is necessary because it can take up to 10 days for coronavirus symptoms to appear.
If you’re travelling to England for less than 10 days, you will need to quarantine for the whole of your stay. You must travel directly to your place of quarantine when you arrive in England and directly from your place of quarantine to the port or airport when you leave. You should follow safer travel guidance and avoid public transport if possible. If you break the quarantine rules you may face a penalty of up to £10,000
Ending your Quarantine Early (Amber countries and Opt in only)
You still need to take a test on or before day 2 for variant surveillance and on or after day 8 to check you do not have Covid19.
Variant surveillance helps the government check if new types of Covid19 are coming into the country.
Booking your travel test package:
Please note you are still required to isolate for 10 days and take Covid19 PCR tests on day 2 and 8. Test to Release is an optional opt in scheme that will allow you to end your 10 day isolation period early when a negative result is received from your day 5 test. You will still need to take a PCR test on day 8.
How will the Test to Release system work?
24 hours before the end of your trip: Check whether the country you are returning from is on the government travel corridor list. This list changes frequently and without notice so make sure you check back regular. If your country is not on the corridor list you will need to book your clinician appointment.
Day one: Arrive back in England from a quarantine country, you need to go straight to your self isolation destination and begin your isolation period in line with the UK government’s instructions.
Day five: You can now physically attend the clinic to have your Covid19 test sample taken
Day seven to eight: Receive your results. If a negative result is returned, you are able to end your self-isolation period.
