Testing for arrivals into the UK from Amber List Countries

Sloane Street Testing offers mandatory arrival testing for amber-list countries both in package tests of day 2/8 (required by law for arrivals into the UK from amber-listed countries) and combination package tests including Test to Release (for testing on day 5). A negative test on day 5 means that you can end your quarantine early.

Our testing centre will make this process seamless for you, offering a personalised service with access to our customer service team who can answer any questions you may have. Testing can be be offered completely as a home testing kit (including the Test to Release sample), or you can have your Test to Release sample performed at our testing centre by our trained professionals.


For patients of all ages. N.B. children under the age of five years do not need to have mandatory testing, but are eligible for Test to Release
