SYNLAB Test to Release

Update to Test to Release Eligibility – Last Updated 9th June 2021

Passengers arriving from countries on the GOV.UK Amber country list have the option to opt into (and pay for) an additional test at day 5 through the Test to Release scheme.

Click here for the latest GOV.UK information on Green, Amber and Red country lists and COVID-19 test requirements.

Passengers arriving from Amber countries must:

  • quarantine for 10 days at their own home / stay with friends or family / a hotel or other temporary accommodation that is not a managed quarantine hotel
  • take a mandatory coronavirus (COVID-19) test on day 2 and day 8 of quarantining
  • follow the national lockdown rules

Click here for the latest updates re day 2 and day 8 testing requirements for passengers arriving from Amber countries. 

If passengers do not want to opt into the Test to Release scheme, they must self-isolate for 10 days and are still required to take the mandatory day 2 and day 8 tests.

PASSENGERS NOT ELIGIBLE FOR TEST TO RELEASE

Passengers arriving from Red countries are not eligible to opt into the Test to Release scheme.

Passengers arriving from Green countries are only required to take a day 2 test and do not need to quarantine unless that test result is positive. As such there is not a requirement to opt into the Test to Release scheme.
