This Day 2 on-site test will allow you to finish your self-isolation with results delivered on the same day* and is only available at our clinics across Greater London.

The testing you require when you arrive in England depends on where you have been in the 10 days before you arrive. Please see the latest information for the rules for entering England and also the UK government's rules for travelling to the UK.

If you are fully vaccinated and arrive in England:

  • You must book and pay for a Day 2 test before you travel.
  • You do not need to quarantine on your arrival in England.
  • You must take a test on or before the end of Day 2 after you arrive (i.e. day 0, 1 or 2).
  • If your test result is positive, you must self-isolate.

To qualify under the fully vaccinated rules for travel to England, you must have proof of full vaccination with a full course of an approved vaccine at least 14 days before you arrive in England. Approved vaccines are: Oxford/AstraZeneca, Pfizer BioNTech, Moderna, Janssen, Sinovac-CoronaVac, Sinopharm Beijing or Covaxin. Please see the UK government website for more details. The proof must have been issued by either:

If you are not fully vaccinated you must book a Day 2 and Day 8 testing package and self-isolate for 10 days.

Children aged 5 to 18 will need to do a Day 2 PCR. Children aged 4 and under will continue to be exempt from any travel testing.

Please note you can only select one shipping option per order (e.g. postal or in-store). If you wish to have multiple shipping options (e.g. 1 x in-store + 1 x postal) you must make two separate orders/transactions.

How does this Day 2 Same Day* PCR test work? 

The day you arrive in England is regarded as your day 0. Please note that you can conduct your Day 2 appointment on or before day 2 which means you can book your appointment on day 0, 1 or 2 at one of our stores, all conveniently located across London and the South East or through our home visit service. 

We recommend doing your test as soon as you arrive into the UK on the same day. 

Prior to travel, please simply follow the steps below:

  1. You need to order and pay for this test before you are due to arrive in the UK. The day you arrive in the UK is your day 0 and you can conduct your Day 2 test on or before day 2.
  2. During checkout you will need to book your Day 2 appointment before you purchase the test.
  3. On the purchase confirmation page, you must follow the link to register your test with us and complete your registration. You will also receive a purchase confirmation email with the link to register your test.
  4. You will then be given a unique code (e.g. LMLAB1234567) to use when you fill out your UK government passenger locator form before you arrive in the UK.
  5. It is vital you register your test before entering the UK as the information is required for UK border entry. Also if you do not register your test we are unable to process your test in the laboratory. 
  6. If you do not receive your confirmation email after this booking, please check your spam or junk email before contacting us.
  7. Visit our location at the appointment time you have chosen to have your swab taken.
  8. Your Day 2 test results will then be sent to you via email via email between 6pm-midnight on the same day*.

For further details on the booking process please read the additional information below. 

Please note you can only select one shipping option per order (e.g. postal or in-store). If you wish to have multiple shipping options (e.g. 1 x in-store + 1 x postal) you must make two separate orders/transactions.

*When will I receive my results?

So long as your sample is taken by 1pm, then we will process your test on the same day and aim to deliver your results via email before midnight on that same day.

Please be aware that in a small percentage of cases, tests need to be re-run which is in an unavoidable reality with such a precise and sensitive laboratory test. Please allow for the possibility that it will be several hours longer to get your results to you.

For the full terms and conditions, please visit our Terms & Conditions and Refund Policy for more information.

What happens if I test positive on my day 2 test?

The Day 2 Covid-19 test is to help identify any potential new variants of Covid-19 entering the UK. We are also required by the UK Government to send your Day 2 test for genomic sequencing if it is positive.

If you test positive on your Day 2 test, you must quarantine for a further 10 days beginning on the day the test was taken. You must also self-isolate if NHS Test & Trace informs you that you travelled to England with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. 

Please regularly check the UK quarantine rules: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/how-to-quarantine-when-you-arrive-in-england

“A different testing company sent a damaged kit in the post, their communication to resolve the issue was non-existent and I needed to find a testing company that could help me get my fly the next day. In contrast, with Private Coronavirus Tests I was able to quickly book a slot. I turned up in-person a little early and they were able to see me straight away and the results were emailed to me whilst I waited at the coffee shop next door. The location near King's Cross was perfect.”
