Detailed guide: Providers of day 2 and day 8 coronavirus testing for international arrivals

Posted on:

Booking a test

The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) is aware of these providers (including NHS Test & Trace) who may be able to conduct tests for day 2 and day 8 testing for international arrivals.

This list is continually updated by DHSC as providers declare that they meet the required standards and are reviewed by UKAS.

The government does not endorse or recommend any test provider. Individuals should conduct their own research about available providers and the tests they supply.

The first test will be taken on or before day 2 of your quarantine period and the second test will be taken on or after day 8 of your quarantine period.

Prices are indicative only

The test package prices listed are for the providers standard service, which meets the governments minimum standards. This includes:

  • both test kits
  • delivery and (where relevant) test swabbing
  • full evaluation of the test samples
  • relevant genome sequencing activities
  • result reporting to the patient
  • data reporting to PHE

Prices are updated periodically so there may be differences between the price listed here and the price on the providers website.

Prices may differ from provider to provider for a number of reasons, for example to reflect different levels of customer support. Please contact providers for detailed product and pricing information. It is important to note that some providers may offer a range of packages at different prices with further add-ons, such as premium delivery.
