Day 2 for Green List Countries

The UK government has informed that from 17th May 2021, International travellers from Green List Countries, DO NOT need to self-isolate. They will ONLY need to have a COVID-19 PCR test on or before the second day of their arrival in the UK. This can be done as a self-swabbing or in a clinic which is listed on the UK Government website/GOV.UK.

Before you travel to England you must:

In the event of a positive COVID-19 PCR test result from the day-2 sample, special testing called genomic sequencing will also be carried out to identify the COVID-19 variant (type of COVID-19). This test is crucial to prevent the spread of new variants within the UK. Genomic sequencing will NOT cost you extra.

Passengers must self-isolate if NHS Test & Trace informs them that they travelled to England with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.

If you get a positive result from your day-2 test, you must quarantine for 10 days beginning the day after the swab was taken (this means until your day 13 of being in the UK). Your household and all those traveling with you will also need to quarantine until day 13 of your arrival in the UK. If you get a positive result from your day-2 test, you do not need to take any other test.

4 Medical Testing provides end-to-end COVID-19 testing in line with UK Government requirements.The UK Government requirement is that you MUST order and book your standalone day-2 tests before boarding your flights back to the UK (before starting your journey to the UK). Failure to do so may result in fines and other penalties. You can order your standalone day-2 test as early as is convenient for you, and we will make sure that your day-2 testing kit arrives to you on or before day-2. The test kits will have a clear instruction on how to handle, swab, repackage and return them to 4 Medical Testing laboratories for prompt analysis.

When ordering your test, you need to provide details about yourself and your journey. Once your order is completed, you then receive a unique reference number which you MUST enter on your Passenger Locator Form (see for details) before boarding your flight to the UK. 4 Medical Testing offers a standard option for day-2 COVID-19 PCR tests.

All orders include trackable delivery, allowing you to track the delivery of your test kit. Your selected option will include a day-2 standalone test. If your test result becomes invalid, 4 Medical Testing will repeat your test at no extra cost to you. 4 Medical Testing prides itself in providing the best services to our customers and be in forefront of the fight against COVID-19 pandemic and its spread. 4 Medical Testing strives to help you and your family remain COVID-19 free.
