How will the recent UK government changes impact my order?

Updated 15th March 2022

We're aware the government has made another announcement on 15th March 2022 regarding testing for travel.
At Chronomics we like to give our customers the best and most reliable service, which is why we are constantly reviewing our testing packages to ensure they reflect the most up to date government rules. 

 

From the 18th of March at 04:00am GMT UK time; travel requirements are changing for arrivals into England. If you're returning to England from abroad after 4am on Friday 18th March, you no longer need to:

  • Take any COVID-19 tests – before your return travel OR after you arrive back in England.
  • Fill in a UK passenger locator form before you return to England.
  • Quarantine on your return.

This will be the case for both vaccinated AND unvaccinated travellers. 

It's important to note that other countries may still have COVID-19 entry rules in place and you should check your destination country's travel advice for what tests you may need before you travel.

If you're returning to England before the travel rules change (before 4am on 18th March 2022), you must follow the current rules as set out in government guidance. For legal reasons, we're unable to advise you on what tests you may or may not need. However, you can find more information on entry requirements to the UK here.


Please see below for our response to the announcement made on 24th January 2022:

We're aware the government has made an announcement on 24th January 2022 regarding testing for travel.
At Chronomics we like to give our customers the best and most reliable service, which is why we are reviewing our testing packages once again to ensure they reflect the most up to date government rules. We'll update this page as soon as we have any further information so please check back here regularly. 

From 4am on 11th February, if you're fully vaccinated you don't need to take any COVID-19 travel tests before you travel to England or after you arrive and you'll only need to fill out the simplified passenger locator form (PLF). If you're unvaccinated, you're no longer required to take a test on day 8. For more information about the recent changes please see the gov website. You'll still need to fill in a PLF.
