To return to England, Scotland or Wales, you must take a Rapid Antigen (Test to Return) test while you’re on your holiday, within the three days before you travel back home. You should ensure you pack your Chronomics Rapid Antigen test into your luggage before you leave the UK. Please note: These testing kits are not available to ALL residents of the UK.
