For fully-jabbed travelers and most under 18s traveling in England from countries not on the red travel list, lateral flow tests will be used instead of PCRs starting October 24. From October 22, you can arrange the tests through a list of providers on the GOV.UK website. Passengers must photograph their lateral flow test and the booking reference provided by the private provider and send it back to them to validate the result.
Travelers who have been vaccinated in more than 100 countries and territories will be treated the same as fully vaccinated UK residents returning home. This implies they'll be eligible for a quarantine exemption and fewer testing requirements, such as only having to take a lateral flow test when they arrive. For the public to choose from, the government will continue to provide a list of private testing providers who fulfill the minimal standards.
