Covid Tests for Travelling.
Ask a Question
I have come across a real problem, and despite hours of googling I cannot find the answer.
I know it's a long shot but I hope somebody on here can help.
I am planning on visiting Riga, Latvia in December to see their Christmas Market. Latvia is one of only a handful of Countries that don't require a Covid travel test when you visit.
The trouble is you do need a negative Covid test result to get back into the UK, which must be taken while you are on holiday, 72 hours before you come home.
My problem is I will only be in Latvia for 2 nights, meaning I won't have even left the UK 72 hours before I return.
So what do I do? Do I stick strictly to the 72 hour rule meaning the test would be pointless as I have not started my holiday?
I think I have discovered a real flaw in the whole travel testing system.
