Product description

We’ve partnered with MyHealthChecked to bring you trusted COVID-19 tests for travellers. This test can be ordered through MyHealthChecked.

MyHealthChecked COVID-19 day 2 PCR swab test kit is ideal for vaccinated and unvaccinated travellers arriving from non-red list countries.

Suitable for adults and children, the MyHealthChecked COVID-19 day 2 PCR swab test kit can be taken on day 2 after their arrival in the UK. If you are vaccinated or unvaccinated and arrive in England or Wales from a non-red list country, you can use this test kit. Even if you are staying in England or Wales for less than 2 days, you will still need to book your COVID-19 for day 2 before your arrival.

A single use test, the MyHealthChecked COVID-19 day 2 PCR swab test kit has everything you need to comfortably take your sample at home. Make sure to check the regulations of the country you are travelling to including your vaccination status. You’ll need to order your test kits before you travel.
