Guidance for travelling to the UK
The rules are different depending on which nation you are travelling to.
Tests are carried out in different ways depending on where they take place, and if they're supervised.
'Supervised' means staff will take the sample for you. If you take the test at home, you may be able to have a video call with staff who will explain what you need to do.
'Self swab' means you'll take the sample yourself without supervision.
