Everyone travelling from a Green country must book a Green  Arrivals test prior to arrival in England. You must take a COVID-19 test on or before day 2 for variant surveillance and this is in addition to the mandatory requirement for a test within 72 hours of departure to the UK.


The test is required on day 2 or before and Collinson offers the 'Day 2 or before' test on your arrival at one of our airport test centres. The day you land is day zero, the following day is day one...etc 


Children under 5 do not need to test. 


Don’t worry about postal delays or self-swabbing incorrectly, instead have your test taken by qualified medical staff at one of our airport test centres on arrival. We do not offer home testing.


Green Arrivals test  £82.50 - Results are typically available within 48 hours. Due to the requirements and nature of processing tests, which can include occasionally having to re-run tests, we strongly advise making a booking as soon as possible for your arrival test. Please remember to allow enough time following landing to clear customs and security before your appointment time for the Day 2 or before test. The cost also includes the requirement for genomic sequencing in the event of a positive test. 


The test should be booked before you travel home so the details can be entered on your Passenger Locator Form. Make sure you book your appointment as soon as you can  to secure your preferred testing slot on arrival at any of the Collinson test centres.  


More info on the requirements can be found here: Quarantine (Gov UK)  


You can pre-book your test in advance by visiting: Collinson Testing Centres and registering your personal details, including email address. 


Each person taking a test must have their own profile created on the booking portal with a unique email address.
