Test to Release for international travel
Updated 9 February 2021
We are suspending the College’s provision of a Test to Release service with immediate effect and until further notice, following the UK government’s strengthened approach to international travel announced on 9 February 2021.
If you are arriving in England from overseas and you still wish to take part in the government’s Test to Release scheme, you will need to book a test with a private test provider. This would be at your own expense. Students who do this should log it on MyImperial.
Otherwise you must continue to self-isolate for 10 days.
Once you have completed your self-isolation, you are eligible to take a weekly test through the College’s asymptomatic testing scheme if you are studying or working on campus. Please minimise social contact until a negative test result has been confirmed.
We recognise this will be disappointing news for those who were planning to use the College’s testing programme for Test to Release. However, please note this change is outside the College’s control.
