Purchase a PCR Day 5 Test from a government approved test provider and indicate your interest in participating in the scheme on the UK government Passenger Locator Form.
Your Passenger Locator Form can be completed in the 48 hours before arriving back in the UK, or at the arrival airport.
Order your test online to be delivered to your home on the 5th day after you arrive home. Perform the test yourself and return the samples to the laboratory nearest to you. You may leave your house to return the result but avoid all public transport and return home directly after dropping off.
Results will take 24-48 hours. If negative, you are free to release from quarantine (England only).
This process must be completed for each individual applying for the Test-to-Release scheme including children.
