Day 2 & Day 8
All international arrivals to England must quarantine for 10 days unless they have a job that qualifies for an exemption. From 15th February 2021, all international arrivals enter a quarantine period and are required to take a test on or before day 2 (of their quarantine period), in order that we can assess which variant you may be carrying (if positive), and a test on or after day 8 (of their quarantine period).
Test-to-Release (Day 5)
The Test to Release for International Travel scheme is for people who need to self-isolate on arrival in England.
The earliest you can take the test is 5 full days after you left a place not on the travel corridor list. (View up-to-date list here). If the result is negative, you can stop self-isolating.
If you do not want to opt into the Test to Release scheme, you will need to self-isolate until 10 full days have passed since were last in a place not on the travel corridors list.
