Traveler Information

In today’s environment, travelling can be very stressful and the many restrictions and rules can be confusing. Biogroup is here to help and guide you, to allow you to travel relaxed. See all the essential traveler information below.

As of February 15th, people travelling to the United Kingdom from outside the Common Travel Area and not travelling from a red list country must:

  • Self-isolate for 10 days;
  • Take a compulsory RT-PCR home test on day 2 and on day 8 of their self-isolation;
  • Follow National Lockdown Rules.

Please see further travel information on the government website.

What to do before travelling to the United Kingdom?

Here is what you need to do before arriving to the United Kingdom:

  • Take a Covid-19 RT-PCR test and get a negative result during the 3 days prior to your travel;
  • Book and pay for your Day 2 and 8 tests, which will includes the RT-PCR tests to be taken on day 2 and day 8 of your quarantine;
  • Complete a Passenger Locator Form with details of where you will self-isolate when you arrive and with your Travel Test Package booking reference number.

How does the Travel Test Package work?

You will need to order your package before your arrival to the UK, as you will need to provide your booking reference on your Passenger Locator Form. The Travel Test Package includes 2 RT-PCR tests that you will receive at home. You will need to carefully follow the instructions of the self-swab and return your kits straight after using them.

  • The Day 2 test must be done on or before Day 2 of your self-isolation;
  • The Day 8 test must be done on or after Day 8 of your self-isolation.

Please note that these tests are not part of the Test to Release scheme. You will still need to finish your self-isolation period regardless of the results of your tests.

Where can you order your Package?

You can now order your Day 2 and 8 tests with Biogroup Laboratory, as we are on the Government’s list of providers.

Please note that you will still need to do your Day 8 test even if you take part in the Test to Release scheme and finish your self isolation on day 6.
