Returning to the UK

PCR tests in Benidorm

Applies to England

When to take your test

You must take the test in the 2 days before your service to England departs.

For example, if you travel directly to England on Friday, you could take a test any time on the Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. The test result must be available for boarding.

If your journey to England is a multi-leg journey, you can take the test in the 2 days before the start of the first leg.

Type of test

The test must meet performance standards of ≥97% specificity, ≥80% sensitivity at viral loads above 100,000 copies/ml.

This could include tests such as:

  • a nucleic acid test, including a PCR test
  • a LAMP test
  • an antigen test, such as an LFD (lateral flow device) test

You must check with your test provider that the test meets the standards. You may not be able to travel if it does not.

If you have recently had COVID

If you have recently recovered from COVID but are no longer infectious, you should use a lateral flow device (LFD) test. LFD tests have a lower sensitivity than PCR or LAMP tests, so they are less likely to return a positive result from a historic infection. The LFD test must meet the minimum performance standards as set out above.

PCR tests in Benidorm

Where to take your test

You will need to find a private test provider to take a test.  SEE DETAILS ABOVE

You can choose to take a test:

  • in the place where you start your journey
  • in another country on your way to England, if you are travelling through another country - SEE DETAILS BELOW

Taking a test on your journey to England

If your journey to England is long, and will involve stopping in another country on the way, you should try to take a test in the country you’re travelling through. This is so you take the test in the 3 days before you board the final service to England.

For example, if you’re driving from Germany and you stop for a few days in Belgium, you should take a test in Belgium.

If you’re travelling by plane and changing flights, where possible you should get a test within 3 days of your final departure point to England.

Check that you will be able to get a test

If you plan to take a test in a country on your way to England, you must make sure that this is possible before you set out. Some countries have entry restrictions in place, which mean you may not be able to get tested there.

If you do not have proof of a test because you planned to get tested on your journey, but you were not able to do so because you were not able to enter the country in which you planned to get tested, you will be allowed to board. But you may be fined £500 on arrival in England because you do not have a valid test result.

Taking your test in the UK before travel

If you are returning to the UK within 3 days, you can use the result of a COVID-19 test that you take in the UK before you travel. You must use a private test provider for the test and not an NHS test.

The service on which you will arrive back in the UK must set off for the UK within 3 days of when you took the test.

Positive test results

If your test result is positive, you must not travel. You must follow local rules and guidance for positive coronavirus cases.

If the result is inconclusive, you must take another test.

Testing positive for COVID-19 while in Spain

If you are tested and the result is positive, you must self-isolate in your accommodation and call your regional hotline which for our region Valencia is 900 300 555 You must remain in your accommodation until contacted by local Spanish authorities. Contact times may vary across regions and can take up to 48-72 hours.

You may be able to remain in your existing accommodation, or be required to transfer into a state hospital or other government-provided accommodation. You may be required to fund accommodation whilst you wait to be transferred.

The nature of your accommodation may differ from the specifications of your pre-booked hotel, villa or other place of stay.

Depending on local arrangements, travellers in groups may be required to stay in separate accommodation (e.g. if a sufficient number of rooms is not available in one venue, your group may be spread across different accommodation locations).

You should follow the advice of the local authorities at all times.

Quarantine/Shelter Hotels - If you test positive for COVID-19 you may have to enter a quarantine hotel. The UK government will not cover mandatory quarantine costs for British nationals.

EHIC or GHIC cards therefore cannot be used to cover the cost of staying in a quarantine hotel. Make sure you have access to funds to cover the costs or take out insurance, checking the policy has adequate cover.

If you have or are entitled to an EHIC or GHIC and you need state healthcare treatment while staying at a quarantine hotel, the UK government will fund treatment as usual through the EHIC/GHIC scheme. Remember that an EHIC or GHIC does not cover private treatment. You will be responsible for the cost of any treatment provided by a private doctor or hospital.

British nationals who need consular assistance should contact the nearest consulate, embassy or high commission.

How to provide proof of a negative test result

Proof for EU residents or citizens

If you are an EU resident or citizen, you can use the EU Digital Covid Certificate (EU-DCC) to provide proof of your test result. This can be in either digital or paper format.

If you are not an EU resident or citizen, you cannot use the EU-DCC to provide proof of your test result.

Proof for non-EU residents and citizens

You must provide the original test result notification. Your test result must be in either English, French or Spanish. Translations will not be accepted.

Your test result can be provided as:

  • a printed document
  • an email or text message you can show on your phone - make sure your device is charged

It must include the following information:

  • your name, which should match the name on your travel documents
  • your date of birth or age
  • the result of the test
  • the date the test sample was collected or received by the test provider
  • the name of the test provider and their contact details
  • confirmation of the device used for the test, or that the test was a PCR test

If you do not have proof of a negative test result

If you do not present proof you tested negative, you may not be able to board your transport to England.

If you arrive in England without proof you tested negative, you could be fined £500.

NHS tests

NHS tests cannot be used for the purpose of pre-departure testing before travel to England.

You cannot take an NHS test abroad with you to use on yourself before you return.

Children

Children aged 17 and under do not have to take a COVID-19 test before travel to England.

From 4am 7 December, children aged 12 to 17 must take a PCR or LFD COVID-19 test in the 2 days before travel to England.

Read more about children and COVID-19 travel tests in the Travel to England guidance.

Children who have been in a red list country or territory

Children aged 11 to 17 who have been in a red list country or territory in the 10 days before they arrive in England must take a COVID-19 test in the 3 days before travel to England.

From 4am 7th December, children aged 12 to 17 who have been in a red list country or territory in the 10 days before they arrive in England must take a PCR or LFD COVID-19 test in the 2 days before travel to England.

Job and medical exemptions

You do not need to take a test if you are travelling to the UK:

  • for urgent medical treatment or are accompanying someone who is travelling for urgent medical treatment, and it is not reasonably practical for you to obtain a negative COVID-19 test in the 3 days before departure
  • if you have a medical condition which means you cannot take a test – you must present a note from a medical practitioner at check in and to Border Force staff on arrival in England

Some people are exempt from some or all of the requirements because of the job they do
