COVID-19 Day 2 and Day 8 travel tests for all international arrivals.

As a UKAS accredited day 2 and day 8 test provider we offer these 2 PCR tests for £220 or if you require only day 2 test then this costs £120

The UK government has mandated that all international arrivals to the UK are required to take the Day 2 COVID-19 PCR tests if you are fully vaccinated and travelling from a non-red list country. If you are not fully vaccinated then you must take both the day 2 and day 8 PCR tests. The purpose of the Day 2 test is for Covid-19 variant surveillance; this is a gene sequencing test that has to be done in specialist laboratories. Day 8 test is the check that you do not have Covid-19. All red list country arrivals must quarantine for 10 days, in a managed quarantine hotel even if you are fully vaccinated.

If you are not fully vaccinated and travelling from a non-red listed country, you can additionally take a Test to Release on Day 5.

  • You are guaranteed to receive your results within 24-36 hours once the sample is received in the lab.
  • Top Health Clinic and its laboratory partners are Government-recognised and registered private providers for Testing on Day 2 and Day 8.
  • If your Day 2 test is positive, it will undergo further testing to identify variants of Covid-19. This is important to prevent new variants coming into the UK. For unvaccinated non-red list country arrivals our Day 8 test is the final test before the 10 days quarantine period.
  • For unvaccinated non-red list country arrivals, provided that your day 2 and day 8 tests are negative, you must stay in quarantine until day 10, unless you carry out a day 5 test to release covid-19 PCR test. Click Here for Further Details
