You will need to take a COVID-19 test on or before Day 2 / Day 8 of your quarantine period. The day of arrival in England will be treated as day 0.

It is important to note the arrival time of your flight when taking your Day 8 test. You must take your swab after this time on your Day 8 for the timing of the test to be acceptable. For example, if you arrive at 9pm on the 1st, you must take and register your test after 9pm on the 9th for your Day 8 test.

To be clear, you must take and register your swab a full 192 hours after arrival in the UK for the system to recognise your Day 8 registration.

You need to take a COVID-19 test on or after day 8, unless you got a positive result from your day-2 test.
