dah Posted 2 September , 2021 Share Posted 2 September , 2021 This is different to the earlier thread about PCR (or antigen) tests BEFORE leaving France. I'm on the Somme right now and will be leaving on 9th September.......booking my French-based pre-departure Antigen test at the Mailly-Maillet (or Combles) in the very near future....as per the advice I read in the earlier thread. HOWEVER....I/others also have to pre-book (before departing France) the DAY 2 Covid test to be carried out in UK after return. Perhaps I'm stupid (always possible) but I cannot fathom from the UK gov website if I'm similarly allowed to go down the cheaper ANTIGEN test after I return to the UK. Logic suggests to me that if the UK finds a negative Antigen test sufficient BEFORE I leave France....then surely a repeat antigen test should be accepted for the test AFTER I arrive back in the UK. And yet the .gov website is as clear as mud on this (at least to me) I appreciate that the belt and braces approach is to solve the confusion by booking a c£70 PCR test.....but would obviously prefer to save the extra £40 if it's acceptable to choose the c£30 antigen test. Grateful for any advice that can clarify my confusion Many thanks, David Many thanks, David Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
