Can C19 Testing tests be used on children?

Whilst our website states that test kits cannot be purchased by individuals under 18 years of age, our tests can be used on children of all ages as required.

 

Please check the requirements of your destination country to determine at what age a child might need to be tested, as this varies considerably and can also depend on vaccination status (for example a child may be classed under "fully vaccinated" for testing purposes depending on the whether the origin country has an established vaccination programme).

 

For UK arrivals, children aged 5 and older are required to take a Day 2 or Day 2 Day 8 test, depending on their status. For Test to Release (Day 5), children of all ages are required to test in order to be released early from quarantine under this programme. Please see the latest UK government guidance for more information.
