You can purchase our PCR tests for general COVID-19 testing purposes. You need [TEST_COUNT] test(s).

PCR is by far the most accurate, sensitive and specific test for COVID-19. Most PCR tests are swab-based: The Lancet says saliva sampling is actually better, as well as simpler and less painful. 

We use non-invasive, saliva-based testing, without the need for nose and throat swabs, to provide accurate results, simply and without discomfort. In addition to general COVID-19 testing, our PCR tests are approved by the UK government for Day 2, Day 8, Day 5 Test to release and pre-departure tests.

Our PCR tests are approved by the UK government for Day 5 Test to release. You’ll need to purchase [TEST_COUNT] test(s) for this purpose.

Test to release is specifically for travellers returning from Amber list countries who are required to quarantine at home for 10 days. (This applies if you have not been double-vaccinated – that is you have not had your final dose of an approved vaccine at least 14 days before arrival back in England – or if you are returning from France, where everyone is required to quarantine at home regardless of their vaccination status.) 

The Test to release scheme means you can choose to book and pay for a PCR test on Day 5 during your time quarantining at home. If the result is negative (and the result of your Day 2 test was negative or inconclusive) you can end your quarantine. You must still book and take your Day 2 and Day 8 tests – both of which can also be purchased from HALO. 

You must also have proof of a negative COVID-19 test to travel back to England. You will need to book this separately in the country you’re travelling to. You’ll also need to complete your Passenger Locator Form before you arrive in the UK. 

Also check if your destination requires a pre-departure PCR test using the government’s search tool. If so, you can also purchase a HALO test for this purpose. 

If you urgently need your test(s), we have an Express Courier Service.
