How does Test to Release work?

Book your Test to Release kit before you arrive in England - you can pre-book it at the same time as your outbound travel test.

  • We will send you all the information you need to record your test details on your Passenger Locator Form. 

  • We’ll send the test kit to your chosen address 5 days after your arrival.

  • Return your test kit to the lab. You’ll receive results 24-48 hours after they’ve received it.

  • Negative? Exit quarantine and get back to doing the things you love. You’ll still need to take a test on day 8, due to new requirements in England.

  • Positive? Book a free follow-up phone consultation with a Qured GP, and get expert clinical advice.

FAQs

Fit-to-Fly tests for departures from the UK

Most countries now require proof of a negative Covid-19 test for entry.  Please check your destination country requirements for the type of test required and the time window during which you need to take it prior to departure:

  • PCR: Negative PCR tests are widely accepted. After checking your destination country's requirements, use our travel calculator to determine when you should order your test. 

  • Antigen Test: The USA and a number of other countries also accept a negative Covid-19 rapid antigen test for entry. These lateral flow tests  (LFDs) are faster and less expensive than PCR tests.  If you are travelling to the USA or have confirmed that your destination country accepts LFDs, book your test delivery and video consultation in the required time window before travelling.  

Pre-departure testing for arrivals to the UK

Order your test kit before you travel and we will ship it to you in the UK, so you can take it abroad with you. We are not able to ship the test kit to you abroad.  

Before your return to the UK, simply schedule your video consultation with a Qured Health Advisor. You should book your video call as early as possible to ensure that you get the slot you want, but make sure the call is scheduled no earlier than 72 hours before you start your journey.

Day 2 and Day 8 testing for arrivals to the UK

All international arrivals to the UK are required to quarantine for 10 days and take PCR tests on or before Day 2 and on or after Day 8 of arrival. These tests must be purchased as a bundle, even if you opt for Test to Release. Order your tests before you travel to the UK,  as you will need to present proof of this booking on your passenger locator form before you depart to the UK and also on entry.  

Test to Release - optional Day 5 test

You can opt in to the Test to Release scheme to cut your 10-day quarantine. You will need to take a PCR test 5 full days after your arrival and, on receiving a negative result, you will be able to leave self-isolation early. You should order it before you start your return journey to the UK as you'll need to enter the test information on your passenger locator form.  If you decide to take part in the scheme after you have arrived, you will need to complete another passenger locator form. Even if you opt into Test to Release, you’ll still need to take your Day 8 test.
