When returning from amber list countries, travellers are required to quarantine for ten days and take PCR tests on Days 2 and 8. But with the government’s Test to Release scheme, the quarantine period can be reduced dramatically.
When you sign up to participate in the scheme, you will be allowed to an additional PCR test on or after Day 5. If the result of this test comes back negative, you will no longer need to quarantine.
Although the Test to Release scheme is voluntary, only people self-isolating in England after a visit to an amber list country are eligible for participation.
Amber list country returnees who are either fully vaccinated or under 18 years of age are exempt from self-isolating and taking the Day 8 PCR test.
When will I receive my results?
The next-day results service at our Exeter clinic is £125.
You will receive your test results through email.

How can I opt into the Test to Release scheme?
If you want to take advantage of this scheme, you must book a Day 5 PCR test before you begin your journey back to the UK. Once you have booked the test, you must include the details in your passenger locator form and confirm that you want to opt into the scheme.
Can I travel to your Exeter clinic if I am self-isolating?
You can travel to our clinic for your tests while you are still self-isolating as long as you have a pre-booked appointment with us.
If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you must use our at-home tests instead.
How does the Test to Release PCR test work?
Standard PCR tests are used for the Test to Release scheme. It involves using swab samples from a subject’s nose and throat to determine whether they are currently infected with COVID-19.
What if I test negative?
If the result of your Day 5 test comes back negative, you may stop self-isolating right after. However, you must still take your Day 8 PCR test on time.
What if I test positive?
If your Day 5 PCR test comes back positive, your quarantine period, by default, restarts for another ten days from one day after you had taken the test. The days you had spent in quarantine previously will not count any longer.
Check the NHS website for the latest information.
What if my test result is inconclusive?
You must continue with your current quarantine effort if your Day 5 test comes back with an inconclusive result. You may book a retest.
Can I take part in the scheme after I arrive in England?
In order to take part in the Test to Release scheme, you must book your Day 5 PCR test before you travel to the UK and confirm that by including the booking details in the pre-flight passenger locator form.
Can I take part in the scheme if I am travelling from a country on the travel ban red list?
Only travellers returning to the UK from amber list countries and self-isolating in England are eligible for participation in the Test to Release scheme.
