Day 2 and 8 testing step by step guide

1) Order your test pack

  • This test pack is for anyone who is not fully vaccinated and is arriving in England from an amber list country.
  • This test pack is not for children. Children between 5 and 18 years old need a Day 2 test.

If you are unsure if this test is for you or have any queries about your order, you can contact our Customer Support team on 020 3588 0292, 7 days a week.

2) Record your test booking reference number

After ordering your test pack, you will receive two emails. The first email will contain your order confirmation, and the second email will contain your 'test booking reference number'. You must note down your 'test booking reference number' as you will need this to complete your passenger locator form.

3) Activate and take your first test

Do not forget to note down your P number. You can find this on the outside of your test kit box and on the sheet of stickers you need to attach to your sample.

4) Return your first test

You can return your test by posting it using a Royal Mail priority post box.

Please note: If you post your test kit on a Sunday, there may be delays in receiving your results. We recommend posting on Saturday before 12pm if possible.


You must make a note of your Royal Mail tracking ID. You will need this number to identify your test if there are any delivery issues. You can find this number under the barcode on the postal tracking label attached to your test kit.

5) Get results

You will receive your test results and information on what to do next in your patient account within 48 hours of receipt by Royal Mail.

  • If you test positive for COVID-19, you must self isolate for 10 days from the date you took your test.

Delivery Options

How Day 2 and 8 testing works

If you have not received 2 doses of a vaccine that’s been administered by the NHS or approved by the EU or US (or your second dose was less than 14 days before travel) and you’re entering England from an amber list country, you will need to take 2 tests during your 10 day quarantine. ZAVA’s Day 2 and 8 pack contains both of these tests.

All you have to do is:

  1. Order your Day 2 and 8 test pack
  2. Make a note of your booking reference number. You will need to enter this on your passenger locator form when you enter England.
  3. Activate and take your Day 2 test on day 0-2 of quarantine
  4. 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.
  5. We will email you to let you know when your results are in your 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 (Day 5) test if you are arriving in England and the result is negative.

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.

Visit our Entering England FAQ for more information.

Completing your passenger locator form

Before travelling to England, you will need to complete a passenger locator form. To do this, you need a 'test booking reference' number. We will email this to you after you have ordered your test. 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.
