RED = Major restrictions
AMBER = Moderate restrictions
GREEN = Light restrictions

- Day 8 tests mean that you can take a test on the 8th day or after and will need to isolate until you receive the results for this test
- Day ZERO is counted as the day that you arrive into the UK. You may take a day 2 test on this day if you wish.
Before arriving to the UK you will need to fill out your passenger locator form (PLF) HERE. You will need to fill this in within 48 hours of arriving to the UK.
The grids below will tell you which test you need to book and whether you need to isolate or not.
Which test do you need to book?

*Children 10 years and under do not need to take a test
If you have visited an AMBER or RED country within 14 days prior to arriving in the UK, you will need to follow the testing and isolation advice for these countries and cannot follow the GREEN country rules.
If you test positive on your day 2 test, you will need to isolate for 10 days without the option of releasing early.
