In line with the UK Government's Global Travel Taskforce framework for safely reopening international travel, the traffic light system will heavily rely on testing.

Arrivals from ‘amber’ and ‘green’ countries will be required to book test packages before travelling from one of the government’s approved list of providers.

These providers have declared that they meet the UK government’s minimum standards for providers of Test to Release for international travel or minimum standards for private sector providers of general COVID-19 testing (the Declaration). Both lists are continually updated by the Department of Health and Social Care as providers declare that they meet the required standards and are reviewed by UKAS.
