PCR Testing Abroad

Preparing for your return to the UK

Preparing your return journey. Find out more information about how to ensure you comply with UK entry requirements on your return journey.

With the UK Government’s recent announcement that international travel can commence from 17th May and the welcome news that Portugal has been added to the ‘green list’ we thought we would provide more information on how and where you can apply for a PCR test prior to your return to the UK.

For those travelling to countries on the ‘green list’ they no longer have to quarantine or self-isolate on their return (as long as they test negative for Covid-19), however they are still required to provide a negative PCR test taken no earlier than 2 days prior to departure, complete a Passenger Locator Form and take another PCR test no later than 2 days after arrival in the UK.

To help you find out how and where to book a PCR test abroad, we have the following information on how to book and pay for a test in each of the countries we work with:

Portugal

AMBER LIST

Portugal is looking forward to welcoming tourists back and the Portuguese Tourist Office has provided comprehensive information about where you can book a test here. However Portugal has moved to the Amber list since Tuesday 8th June 2021. The entry and return requirements will have changed from this date.

In Lisbon the Hospital da Luz Lisboa offers drive-through/walk-through PCR testing from 90€ per person and results in 24 hours.

Spain

AMBER LIST

Health provider Quirón Salud is the official partner of Iberia and Vueling airlines when it comes to PCR testing prior to departure from Spain and you can book tests and find out information on local testing centres on the Quiron Salud website.

The Castilla y Leon tourist board have provided a comprehensive list of testing locations around the region which you can find here.

France

AMBER LIST

France is still on the amber list and restrictions apply to travel around the country so we are waiting on more information about the testing set up. In the meantime you can find information about the local testing centres on the country’s national health website here.

After your return

For those who are looking for options for tests on return, a number of airlines are working with different testing centres and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office has provided resources for testing before and after you travel.
