SYNLAB Test to Release

Update to Test to Release Eligibility – Last Updated 15th January 2021

International arrivals who arrive in England from South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Eswatini, Zambia, Malawi, Lesotho, Mozambique, Angola, Mauritius and Seychelles are not be able to shorten their self-isolation period through Test to Release.

Please note that from 4am on Friday 15th January the same travel restrictions now apply to international arrivals from the following additional countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, Uruguay, Venezuela, Cape Verde, Portugal (including Madeira and the Azores) and Panama.

If a traveller arrives in England and has been in any of these countries during the 10 days prior to their arrival, they are legally excluded from seeking to shorten their self-isolation period through Test to Release.

British and Irish Nationals, or third country nationals with residence rights in the UK, can enter the UK after having been in these countries but are required to self-isolate on arrival until 10 full days have passed since they last departed from any of these countries. People who share a household with anyone self-isolating after returning from the above countries now also need to self-isolate until 10 days have passed since anyone they live with was last in one of these countries.
