The UK Government Test to Release scheme allows you to reduce your self-isolation period after international travel.
Arrivals in the UK from most countries will have to self-isolate for a period of ten days. Under the scheme, however, you can choose to pay for a private COVID-19 test, and end self-isolation as soon as you receive a negative test result.
The earliest you can take the test is five full days after leaving a country not on the travel corridor list. If you are returning from a country on the travel corridor list, however, you do not need to self-isolate.
