Am I correct in saying that the adults have to do a test max 3 days before departure and the 2 kids as 'unvaccinated' will need to do a test max 1 day before?

My Niece is travelling with us and her grandparents, so does that affect her rules as it refers to travelling with vaccinated parents?

I presume then that their test will have to be scheduled for after 14:30 on the Friday in order to comply with the requirement?

The kids will then have to visit a pharmacy from day 3-5 after arriving to take another test, or can this be an NHS LFT that we take with us and take pics of?

Thanks in advance.

You can test any time on the Friday, as it works in calendar days rather than strictly 24/72 hours. In this instance, I would stick to the day before testing to be safe due to your niece, since the CDC Order does specifically only mention legal guardians rather than adults, even though you are effectively guardians for the purpose of the trip. Otherwise children would use the same timeline when travelling with parents, up to 3 calendar days before.

You can use an NHS test for the post-arrival test, there is no system in place in the US for visitor testing reporting/monitoring. But if you'd prefer to purchase one out there, an over the counter self test is fine since there's no requirement for this to be supervised like the flight test.

You can have your test from the 2nd onwards, the most common at the minute are Breath Assured or Qured and they are done via video call at home.

Will be booking the drive through testing with Collinson at Manchester Airport soon for our January trip.

If I book for 8pm Wednesday, thatís sufficient for a 10am flight on the Saturday? Will the email proof for negative tests be acceptable or do they need to be printed?

Thanks everyone

Any time from Wednesday onwards is fine for a flight on Saturday. It works on calendar days rather than 72 hours.

I haven't printed a document in years, showing it on my phone has always been acceptable when required. Although this is one instance where I do plan to have printed backups just in case but I'll be using Verifly as my first option, phone second and prints if all else fails.

Thanks for the clarification.

With the day 2 tests on return, itís correct that you can do them any time after landing (eg at the airport before you travel home) until day 2 right?

Also the company I was looking at was a bit confusing with all the vaccinated / non vaccinated optionsÖ.do our single vaccinated teens (15 and 13) use the same fully vaccinated LFT option as us because theyíre under 18 and travelling with us? Thatís how I think I read it at least.

Hey Guys

Please could I ask a question about not requiring a pre departure test if youíve had COVID in the last 90 days.
Does the 90 days start from the day you test positive?
All 3 of us currently have COVID, and we travel in less than 90 days, but we tested positive just over 90 days before our travel date.

Thank you
