What Is
Test To Release?

Test to Release is a new Government testing strategy aimed at reducing the length of time travellers to England have to self-isolate. The new testing scheme is for anyone travelling from countries not on the Government’s travel corridor list. It applies to anyone arriving or returning to England from these countries via plane, ferry or train.

Anyone arriving in England from a country not on the Government’s travel corridor list currently have to self-isolate for 10-days. The new testing strategy can shorten self-isolation upon receipt of a negative test after 5 days of self-isolation.

Frequently asked


How does Test to Release work?

According to the Government website: 'Under the ‘Test to release for international travel’ strategy, passengers arriving into England by plane, ferry or train should book their test before they travel; must complete a passenger locator form; and will still need to self-isolate for 5 days before taking a test – rather than taking it at their port of arrival.

How soon after arriving in England do I need to take the coronavirus test?

The Government guidance stipulates that the coronavirus test should be taken 5 days after arriving in England from countries not on the Governments travel corridor list. Travellers still need to self-isolate until they have a negative test result.

Do I still have to self-isolate on arrival in England?

Yes. The Government guidance stipulate that travellers from countries not on the Government's travel corridor list must self-isolate for 14-days upon arrival in England. Travellers now have the option to reduce the 14-day self-isolation period by taking a coronavirus test 5 days after arriving in England. A negative test result will allow travellers to end self-isolation.

Can I get this test for free using NHS Test & Trace?

No. The Government are not providing coronavirus tests for free as part of the NHS Test & Trace system for travellers returning to England as part of the Test to Release scheme.
