What is the Day 2 and Day 8 PCR Test?

Currently, due to the Covid pandemic, all international inbound travellers to England are subject to government mandated COVID-19 PCR Testing required on Day 2 and/or Day 8. Vaccinated Passengers are subject to the Day 2 PCR Test only, whilst unvaccinated passengers must undergo both day 2 and day 8 testing.

Day 2 testing and Day 8 test kits are self-administered with detailed instructions included as part of the testing kit.
