Simple rapid antigen lateral flow test & booking reference for your passenger locator form (PLF)

Fully vaccinated individuals arriving in the UK before 30th November can use our rapid antigen lateral flow test as their mandatory "day 2" arrival test.

"Fully vaccinated" means that you've completed a course of an approved vaccine at least 14 days before arriving in the UK. If you're not sure if you're fully vaccinated or how to prove it, please check the government guidance.

You can buy as many day 2 lateral flow tests as you need in one go. Each test is issued with a PLF booking reference number which will be emailed to you immediately after purchase.

Ordering from outside the UK?

We accept international payments and can deliver your test to an address of choice in the UK - e.g. hotel or Air BnB. We'll email your PLF booking reference number as soon as you've ordered.
