Sumary of Travel with confidence this summer – the process explained!:
- For travel overseas this year, you’ll need to take various tests and have the resulting certificates, fill in passenger locator forms, if you’re double vaccinated you’ll need your certificate of vaccination, and before travel you need to have booked your Day 2 test if you are vaccinated and your Day 8 test as well if you are not.
- Pre-departure PCR Covid tests If you are not double vaccinated or you are travelling to a country like Iceland that requires a negative PCR test before travel regardless of your vaccination status, you will need to get a PCR test within 48-72 hours of arrival in your destination.
- In person tests can be pre-booked with Boots, Collinson, Randox and Well Pharmacy.
- KE travellers will receive a code for a discount with Randox for ‘at home’ tests but this does not apply to ‘in person’ tests.
- Pre-departure Rapid Antigen Covid tests (also known as lateral flow or RAT) You will need to check what type of test is accepted by the destination you are travelling to.
- A Rapid Antigen test is cheaper and faster to take but not all destinations will accept them.
