Test to Release (Day 5 Test)

If you haven't received 2 doses of an NHS administered vaccine or your second dose was less than 14 days before travel and you’re entering England directly from an amber list country, you need to quarantine for 10 days when you arrive. With Test to Release you can reduce your quarantine time by taking an optional COVID-19 test on day 5*.

How Test to Release works

If you have not received 2 doses of an NHS administered vaccine and you’re entering England directly from an amber list country, you need to quarantine for 10 days when you arrive. Test to Release allows you to reduce your quarantine time by taking an extra COVID-19 test on day 5 of your quarantine period. If you test negative for COVID-19 you may be allowed to leave quarantine early.

All you have to do is:

  1. Order your Test to Release kit
  2. Make a note of your order reference number - you'll need it for your Passenger Locator Form when entering the UK
  3. Activate and take your test on day 5 of your quarantine*
  4. Pack and return your sample via Royal Mail priority post box using the prepaid Tracked24 envelope included or return it to your nearest available drop-off location. If posting, 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. You should get your results within 36 or 48 hours** in your patient account allowing you to stop isolating if your test is negative. We’ll email you to let you know when they’re in.

If you test negative for COVID-19, you can end your quarantine (you must still take your day 8 test). If you test positive, you must continue to quarantine, and we will send you information on what to do next.

* If you land on a Monday, Tuesday would be your first day of quarantine, so you would take your test on Saturday. Please make sure you remember to take your test at the correct time, or you will not be able to leave quarantine.

**ZAVA’s 36 hour turnaround is from drop off at one of our designated locations before 4pm. Our 48 hour turnaround is via post through a Royal Mail priority post box and begins from receipt by Royal Mail. Always check collection times here before posting.
