FAQ

Arrival Test

We post the kits to your address, but it is your responsibility to take the test at the correct time.
  • The day you arrive in England is Day 0.
  • Day 2 Tests must be done on or before Day 2.
  • Day 8 Tests must be done on or after Day 8.
All people arriving into England are required to undertake arrival testing for Covid-19. It is not required if you are arriving from Ireland, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man; and have not been outside of the Common Travel Area in the previous 10 days. Whether you need a Day 2 Only or a Day 2 & 8 Test depends on where you have been in the 10 days prior to your arrival in England.
The Passenger Locator Form is a form that you must complete before you travel back to England. It can only be done within the 48 hours before you arrive into England, not earlier. You can access it here: https://www.gov.uk/provide-journey-contact-details-before-travel-uk
We dispatch Day 2 tests on your arrival date, with Next Day delivery. This ensures that your test arrives on time. We dispatch Day 8 tests on your Day 5. This ensures that your test arrives in advance of your Day 8.
Your result will be complete within 24-48 hours of your sample arriving at the laboratory.
All our kits included include a free pre-paid returns label. You place this on your kit package and return to the laboratory by using a Royal Mail Priority Postbox.
If your test kit arrives broken or damaged, please contact us on 0121 293 0414 and we will discuss possible options. We are not able to process any general refund requests, given that our automated systems provision individuals with unique passenger locator references at the time of booking.
Your results are emailed to the email address submitted in the booking form. We recommend that you check your Junk / Spam folder if you are expecting a result.
121 Pure Testing (Pure Testing) is a UK Gov listed provider of Covid-19 testing and only partners with laboratories who are UKAS appraised, and UK Gov listed.
The test is self-administered and involves taking a throat and nose sample. Here is a helpful video from the NHS and the UK Government for how to take a self-test:
Arrivals from Green List countries are not required to quarantine. However, Amber List arrivals are required to quarantine at home for 10 days. Day 2 & 8 testing does not alter quarantine requirements. Amber arrivals can opt in to Test To Release if they wish to end their quarantine period earlier. This involves taking another test on Day 5. Pure Testing only offers Test To Release at its Birmingham Clinic. You can book appointments here.
All individuals aged 5 and above are required to complete testing following international travel.
