If you are travelling to England from a red list or an amber list country, there is a compulsory ten-day quarantine period on arrival. With the Test to Release scheme, the quarantine period can be reduced to five days for amber list country arrival.
Once you sign up for the scheme, you will be able to take a Covid-19 PCR test five days after your arrival in England. If you get a negative result, you will be allowed to stop self-isolating immediately.
This scheme is only applicable to those who are self-isolating in England.
With the government’s recent update to travel regulation, fully vaccinated UK residents who return from visiting an amber country do not need to enter quarantine.
