This package is suitable for all partially vaccinated and unvaccinated travellers arriving in the UK.
If you are fully vaccinated and travelling to the UK from a country not on the red list, a Day 8 test is not required. Order a Day 2 Lateral Flow test instead.
Please check the latest government travel advice for more information.
The day 2 and day 8 tests are mandatory for all partially vaccinated and unvaccinated travellers entering the UK to check for Covid variants. You may face a penalty of up to £2,000 if you do not purchase and take your Day 2 and Day 8 tests.
Please see the UK government guidance for more information.
Covid-19 is a communicable (infectious) disease and can be passed onto other people even more easily when in confined spaces (such as planes). It is imperative that you follow medical guidance to ensure that you don't pass the virus onto others when travelling or returning back. This is still the case if you have been vaccinated - especially due to the emergence of new variants
Air travel, in particular, can be dangerous when suffering from a respiratory illness such as Covid-19 because of the drop in oxygen that occurs at altitude. It is imperative that you don't have any symptoms of a respiratory infection before you fly. You will be asked a series of questions upon registering your kit to ensure you are not suffering from any of these type of symptoms.
We recommend ordering your Day 2 & 8 travel test package as soon as possible to guarantee that you reserve your test kit.
For any Day 2 & 8 test kits orders received before 2 pm, will be dispatched the same day (Monday - Friday). Free Standard Delivery (3-5 working days) is free; if you need it sooner you can upgrade to Express Delivery (Royal Mail Tracked 24, 1-2 working days) for +£2 at checkout.
Day 2 & 8 tests are both PCR tests. A Covid-19 PCR test looks for the presence of the Covid-19 virus on a sample taken from your nose and throat; collected using a long cotton bud. Medicspot has partnered with world-class UKAS applicant laboratories to provide this testing to ensure fast and accurate results. Our Covid-19 PCR test has a sensitivity of 98% and specificity of 100% when performed correctly.
You will perform your samples using a gentle and non-invasive swab. We will provide you with clear instructions on how to take your swab in your test kits.
We’ll send your test kits with free delivery to your home. Once you’ve collected your sample, you can use the pre-paid DX returns label to send your test back to our lab via DX and return it to your nearest drop-off location.
If your kit does not contain a DX shipping return label simply click here and complete a quick form and our team will email you your return label.
Negative You do not have any evidence of an active infection.
Positive The Covid-19 virus has been detected on your swab. You will not be able to travel or reduce your quarantine time, and we will inform NHS Public Health about your positive result. Medicspot will provide you with a free private doctor consultation if you test positive.
Inconclusive/Needs Repeated Very infrequently, your swab result will need to be repeated. This may occur due to poor sample taking technique. If your result is inconclusive, we will offer you a replacement test.
You must register your kit before returning it via Royal Mail. If you have problems registering your kit on a mobile device, please use a desktop computer. If you need further assistance, our dedicated Covid support team will be happy to help via live chat, 24/7.Chat with us
