Book the test
UK Government guidelines stipulate that customers wishing to purchase Day 0-2 COVID-19 tests must declare that they have been fully vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2 (Coronavirus).
If you have been fully vaccinated you may proceed to purchase your Self-Administered Day 2 Rapid Antigen Test.
If you have not been fully vaccinated then you will not be able to purchase your Self-Administered Day 2 Rapid Antigen Test from Southampton Airport.Book for £25
It is your responsibility to check you are booking the correct COVID test. The COVID testing service is operated by ICTS UK & Ireland and the TAC Healthcare Group Ltd. Southampton Airport is not responsible for any results of testing.GOV.UK Foreign travel advice
Use the link in the payment confirmation email to complete step 2 of the booking process with TAC, our testing partner.
This step not only verifies your email address, which is essential to receiving your testing certificate, but it's also because Southampton Airport doesn't capture essential health data which you will need to provide to TAC.
This will include your NHS Number (if known) your GPs details, passport number, and other information required by the Labs in order to process your test.
YOU MUST COMPLETE STEP 2 OTHERWISE YOU WILL NOT BE TESTED
Receive your booking confirmation email from TAC to confirm the slot. Note, during busy periods this can sometimes take a few hours to arrive in your inbox.
