Which test(s) should I take when I return home and when?

If you live in Scotland, you must book your Day 2 and (if required) Day 8 PCR tests through the CTM booking portal before you go away on holiday. Chronomics Day 2 and Day 8 PCR tests will not be accepted by the Scottish authorities. 


The test(s) you need to take once you’ve arrived home will depend on where you live in the UK and whether you’ve travelled home from a country on the UK traffic light system’s Amber list or the Green list. 

  • Our Green and Green+ packages include 1x PCR test to take on day 2 of your return home. 
  • Our Amber and Amber+ package include 2x PCR tests to take on day 2 and day 8 of your return home. 

You can find out which tests you need to take once you’re arrived home and when by checking out the FCDO website or TUI’s entry requirements page.
