Vaccinated travelers are still required to book a rapid lateral flow test or PCR test for day 2 after arrival and complete a passenger locator form. Travelers testing positive on the rapid lateral flow test will undergo PCR testing. Those who test positive on the PCR test will be required to self-isolate for 10 days.

If traveling to England, travelers may apply for the 'Test to Release' scheme to be tested on the fifth day after arrival and be relieved from self-isolation early, if the result is negative. Those with a positive result will be required to self-isolate for another 10 days.

Vaccinated travelers who meet the exemption criteria are only required to book a 'Day 2 test'.
Unvaccinated travelers staying for less than 10 days, and vaccinated travelers staying for less than 2 days, are still required to book the relevant testing package regardless of the duration of their stay. The tests only have to be taken if the travelers are still in England on the test dates.
