These tests should be made free to all British Tourist when leaving and re-entering the UK

This petition was rejected

The Government e-Petitions Team gave the following reason:

Petitions need to call on the Government or Parliament to take a specific action.

We understand that you are concerned about the cost of Covid-19 tests for international travellers, but we're not sure exactly what you'd like the Government or Parliament to do. Your petition refers to tests when leaving and re-entering the UK, but there are no domestic requirements for people to take a Covid-19 test before leaving the UK.

We could accept a petition calling on the Government to fund free Covid-19 tests for people travelling to the UK, if that's what you want to happen.

We have published the following petition, which you might like to sign:

Fund free hotel quarantine and testing for all UK arrivals: petition.parliament.uk/petitions/575118
