Campden BRI's Test to Release service

Airpot arrivals

If you have been in a country or territory not on the red list in the 10 days before you arrive in England, and are unvaccinated, you must quarantine for 10 days on arrival.

Under the Test to Release scheme you can choose to pay for a private COVID-19 test on day 5. If the result is negative (and the result of your day 2 test result was negative or inconclusive) you can end your quarantine. If you have travelled to a red-list country you cannot apply for the Test to Release scheme.

Wherever you are travelling to, by plane or sea, we're here to provide you with the official testing and certification you need for your day 5 test. At present we do not offer day 2 or day 8 testing.

You can obtain your self-administered test by either delivery or by collection from our Cotswold base.

Please be aware that our laboratories will be closed from 23rd December, and no analysis can be booked after this date.

Still have questions?

We have provided answers to some frequently asked questions about our service.

* To guarantee next day results, you must book your analysis date by 3pm the day before and return the swab to our lab no later than 9.30am on the morning of the analysis.


  • We cannot take responsibility for any delays that occur due to factors that are out of our control (e.g. delayed delivery by courier) which may impact delivery of your swab kit(s) or receiving your sample back at the laboratories.
  • If your sample leaks out of the tube before it is analysed, a repeat test will have to be taken. Ensure you don’t spill the liquid from the tube and close the cap tightly. If a leak occurs it may cause a delay in getting your test results back to you in time as you will need to do a retest.
  • Our site is only open from Mon-Friday from 8am-5pm. Any order placed on Friday can only be collected the next Monday.
  • Once you add a kit to your basket, we will reserve your analysis slot for one hour. Please make sure to complete the checkout process within that time.
  • These results are not suitable for the Day 2 or Day 8 testing.
