2 and 8 Day Testing is required for anyone entering into the UK.
You must take the Day 2 test on your 2nd full day of isolation. If you arrive back into the UK on a Monday, your 2nd full day would be Wednesday.
Your Day 8 test would be taken on the following Tuesday. You should purchase as soon as possible. This is so you can enter details of your test into your passenger locator form.
Important - the Day 2 & Day 8 tests DO NOT permit you to reduce your quarantine time, even if the results are negative you must quarantine for the full 10 days. To end quarantine early, you need to purchase the additional Day 5 Test to Release test.
Currently all travel for holiday reasons is banned from the UK. On May 17th a traffic light system will be introduced to allow everyone to travel with the use of PCR tests. Ireland is the only destination currently listed as Green.
We use Royal Mail 'Tracked 24' - in the majority of cases, tests sent via a priority postbox, before the last collection time, will arrive at the laboratory the next day (excluding Sundays and bank holidays).
In a small number of cases deliveries by Royal Mail can be delayed, this would delay your result. You may leave your house to post your test.
All of our laboratories state that results will be available within 24 hours of test sample receipt although often it is quicker than that.
You will receive an email from the laboratory.
You can email orders@covidtestinglaboratories or call us on 0333 3350227
You can easily create your own unique test reference number.
Always use our unique identifier CTLSS and the your date of birth in 6 number format ( as the example bellow) then simply add 1 to the end of your date of birth if you purchased a single test.
If you ordered two tests and one is for another person please add 2 to the end of your date of birth. This creates the identifier for the second test.
The first example below is for date of birth 26th August 1954 and one test.
The second example is for the same date of birth but for 2 tests.
The reference number contain 7 numbers.
Example 1 -CTLSS2608541
