Covid-19 has significantly affected the travel industry. In 2020, quite a number of travellers were forced to put on hold their plans of travelling across the globe. However, things are getting better now, and travel is picking up quickly. Control over the spread of the COVID-19 virus has increased; this is because of the new vaccination and travel regulations such as the need for Day 2 Antigen Testing.
Fully vaccinated individuals arriving in the UK must now take a rapid antigen test on Day 2 of being back in the country. “Fully vaccinated” means that you’ve completed a course of an approved vaccine at least 14 days before arriving in the United Kingdom.
What is a rapid antigen test?
A rapid antigen test is a test for COVID-19 that offers fast results, usually within 30 minutes. A rapid antigen test is one you do yourself, collecting a sample from one nostril or using a spit sample. This process is not painful but is often uncomfortable. We also offer free lateral flow tests for everyday use. You can find out more about regular testing here.
