Test to Release
Guaranteed results within 48 hours
Reduce your quarantine period when entering the UK from a country not on the travel corridor with our UK GOV authorized COVID-19 test to release.
Under the Test to Release for International Travel scheme, people travelling to England who need to self-isolate will be able to take a COVID test with a private test provider to check if they can end their quarantine period early. This is a throat and nasal swab test and is processed in a UKAS accredited laboratory to approved standards.
The items included with our ‘Test to Release’ service:
Results normally issued 12 to 18 hours after receipt at the lab for analysis, however these times are not guaranteed.
