Before travelling

You must be able to prove you are fully vaccinated before travelling.

The changes also apply to under-18s resident in one of these countries, whether or not they are vaccinated.

Upon arrival

Fully vaccinated people coming to the UK need to take a 'lateral flow test' two days after arrival.

'Passengers need to book tests before travelling to the UK'. After the test they they must send a picture to verify the result. The lateral flow tests for travel must be bought from private providers - NHS kits cannot be used. prices listed on the government website starting at £19. Link.

…. But without having a test number from the supplier of the 2-day post-arrival lateral flow kit, you won’t be able to submit the completed U.K. PLF. 

Ps. I’ve done this twice recently and didn’t follow through with testing … forgot once and because nobody followed through, I didn’t complete the second one. That wasn’t followed through, either.

Not been up and running long so perhaps some admin snarl ups, but failure to comply can result in a £1000 fine.
