This PCR postal test is for pre-departure, before starting your journey from or to the UK to any country that accepts a PCR test.
In order to get your PCR test on time, we ask that you order your PCR test at least 4 days before the date that you need to test.
Please check the https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice for your destination’s requirements.
To receive a Health Declaration Certificate (HDC) from the Chinese Embassy you must provide evidence of two PCR tests for COVID-19, taken 48 hours before you travel.
At least one of the tests must be taken within 24 hours of your departure. The two tests must be conducted in different testing institutions,, and you can use any legal testing centre that can provide a PCR test and full report.
You will not be able to receive a HDC if you have had COVID within the last 14 days. If you have previously been diagnosed with COVID, you will need to upload two additional negative nucleic acid test reports with an interval of more than 24 hours at least 14 days before the departure date.
