What is the Day 2 and 8 test pack?

ZAVA’s Day 2 and 8 test pack contains the 2 PCR COVID-19 tests you will need to take if you are not recognised as fully vaccinated and are entering the UK from any country outside the red travel list.

The Day 2 test is used to find harmful variants of COVID-19 at an early stage.

It can take up to 10 days for COVID-19 symptoms to appear, so the second (Day 8) test is used to find if you have developed COVID-19 by the end of your quarantine period.

If you are fully vaccinated, you do only need to take a Day 2 PCR test on arrival in the UK.

How Day 2 and 8 testing works

If you’re not recognised as fully vaccinated and you’re entering the UK from a country that is not on the red travel list, you will need to take 2 PCR tests during your 10 day quarantine. ZAVA’s Day 2 and 8 pack contains both of these tests.

All you have to do is:

  • Order your Day 2 and 8 test pack
  • Make a note of your booking reference number. You will need to enter this on your passenger locator form when you enter the UK.
  • Activate and take your Day 2 test between day 0 and 2 of quarantine
  • Pack and return your sample via the prepaid Tracked24 envelope included. Don’t forget to write down your tracking reference number and post your test before the last priority collection to ensure there are no delays. Check priority post box times.
  • We will email you to let you know when your results are in your ZAVA patient account. You should get your results within 48 hours of receipt by Royal Mail.

If you test negative you will need to take, activate and return the second test on day 8-10 of your quarantine. You must remain in quarantine until you have completed the full 10 days (unless you take a Test to Release test and the result is negative, though you still have to take your Day 8 test).

If you test positive for COVID-19 after your Day 2 test, you will need to remain in quarantine for a further 10 days from the day after you took the test. Because you are positive for COVID-19, you do not need to take the second Day 8 COVID-19 test.

Completing your passenger locator form

Before travelling to the UK, you will need to complete a passenger locator form. For this, you need a 'test booking reference' number. We will email this to you after you have ordered your test pack. This number will always begin with ‘ZVAGB’.

Please note, it can take up to 30 minutes to receive the email containing your ‘test booking reference’. If you do not receive this within 30 minutes, please contact our Customer Support team.

Always enter your test booking reference where requested, exactly as it is shown in the email and list ‘ZAVA’ as your test kit supplier.
