The testing package you must book for your arrival into England from abroad depends on where you have been in the 10 days before you arrive.
The UK government’s traffic light system has classified all countries as either green, amber or red. The colour classification of your travel destination dictates what you must do when you return.
If you are unsure which test you require, or the colour classification of the country you’re arriving from, please consult the UK Government COVID-19 travel advice. Countries and territories can be moved between lists at short notice, so please monitor Gov.uk for information on which list your country is on.
Regardless of the classification, before travel to England you must take a COVID-19 test in your country of departure and get a negative result during the 3 days before travel.
Make sure that your chosen provider is on the UK Government’s approved provider list.
You must also fill in a passenger locator form for travel to the UK. Your form must include your test booking reference number.
