What type of tests can I use to travel?

Outbound travel: Each destination has their own rules on entry into that country, it is worth checking the FCDO advice on travel into that destination as it is changing rapidly. If a destination requires you to have a negative COVID-19 test to enter the country, you should use a private test provider – a list of the UK Government approved test providers can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/list-of-private-providers-of-coronavirus-testing. 

Inbound travel: If you arrive into England from abroad after 4am, Friday the 18th March, you do not need to take any Covid-19 tests before you travel or after you arrive. You also do not need to fill out a UK passenger locator form before you travel back. This applies whether you are vaccinated or not.

Children aged 17 and under also do not have to take any Covid-19 travel tests or quarantine on arrival in England.
