End of pre-departure tests for arrivals to England
From October 4, people who are fully vaccinated and travelling to England from a country not on the red list (i.e. France) will no longer need a pre-departure Covid test before travelling.
They will be able to travel using only proof of their vaccination status.
PCR to be downgraded to rapid antigen
The UK government is also planning to make it possible for travellers to England to take a rapid antigen test on day two of arrival, instead of a PCR test.
These tests are cheaper, sometimes as much as half the price of PCR tests.
This change is expected to come into effect from late October, but an exact date has not yet been confirmed.
Hope that helps you all.
