Day 2 and 8 Covid Test FAQ’s
We have outlined a list of some of our most frequently asked questions regarding our day 2 and 8 test packages.
Do children require a test?
Testing and quarantine rules for children and young people
Children aged 4 and under do not need to take a COVID-19 test on day 2 or day 8.
Children and young people aged 5 to 17 need to take a COVID-19 test on or before day 2.
Children and young people who are under the age of 18 years on the day they arrive in England, and resident in the UK, do not need to quarantine, unless they have been in France.
All under-18s who’ve been in France in the 10 days before they arrive in England must follow the rules set out below in ‘How to quarantine if you are not fully vaccinated’.

How long does a test take?
The test are sent to your address the following working day. You will then take the swab which will be sent back to our lab. Once the test reached the lab it takes a further 24-48 hours for result issuance.
Can I use an NHS test ?
No, you cannot. These tests are not recognised by international border staff or airlines. You will need to have a private test administered. The NHS tests are designed for people that show symptoms or believe they have come in to contact with some who is COVID-19 positive. It is a misuse of government testing to use the NHS test for your travel. For travel you require a PCR test that is stamped and signed by a verified lab and doctor, not an NHS test.
How do I take my sample?
One of our specialist health care professionals will administer the test for you. That way it will be much more accurate and you won’t have to worry about taking the sample the wrong way.
Where do I take my samples?
Your sample will be collected by one of our members of staff at the clinic you attend and sent to a lab for analysis.
Do I need a test if I am vaccinated?
What you must do if you’re fully vaccinated
If you’ve been in an amber list country (and have not been in or passed through a red list country, or France) in the 10 days before you arrive in England, and you have been fully vaccinated under the UK vaccination programme:
- you must book and take a COVID-19 travel test on or before day 2 after you arrive (the day you arrive is day 0)
- you do not have to quarantine on arrival
Even if you’re fully vaccinated, you will need to quarantine for 10 days if your day 2 test is positive, or if NHS Test and Trace tell you that you travelled to England with someone who has tested positive.
What type of test is it?
The main type of test required for day 2 and 8 is a PCR Test. We offer these tests using our approved labs.
What if I require tests for multiple people?
Great, just use the booking form online.
What dates will be shown on my results?
The date you took the test and the date test was analysed.
Can I collect my sample kit in advance to have it tested later?
Yes, please order your test in advance.
What identification do I need?
Please bring a copy of your passport so we can take down the information for the certificate.
Can I get a certificate without a test?
No, you have to undertake a test to get a certificate.
Can I get tested if I have symptons?
No. If you have symptoms please isolate. Visit the UK govs website here for advice on self-isolation:
