Well, we've just spent at least 30 mins trying to find the times of opening for the covid test centre on the govt. site. Still haven't found them! Now maybe it's our fault but why aren't the times right there in front of the searcher? Maybe they are but they are not obvious to us. Like ALL govt. docs they are full of unnecessary descriptions of what they have done.

Make it simple, who, what, where, when, that's all we need!

By the way, what are the opening times of the covid test centre?

In the same position - re. a more recent post by yourself, we also have children travelling with us. Have emailed a couple of depts. to get official opening/ closing times to be able to plan better. Appreciate booking is needed to get time for a test for the children, but need to plan if it's not going to be the day of arrival.

Isn't opening times more dependent on volume of tests? It's not exactly bloody Shoprite.

From experience I've always been offered tests up to around 230pm. But it's always depended on volume. I'd say if you fly in the morning or arrive on the overnight boat you're in a good place to pre-book a test. Assume to be offered a slot 1030/11 readily if you want one for around then.

Love Shoprite :) On the Liverpool morning sailing so pm arrival - and so you have referenced something I’ve been thinking about - travel overnight and be able to get the children tested first thing in the morning or travel during the day and risk waiting for a test.

As with my recent trip back to Island, overnight crossing, test booked 0935am and got the all clear by 1745 same day.

Yes, but no one from IOM can yet prove vaccination status internationally. The data upload to NHS App doesn’t yet seem to have been performed to the extent necessary to generate the QR certificate.

But there's the additional complication that some countries may not even accept the NHS app.   Malta accepts the EU Digital COVID Certificates, but:

From 30 June 2021, all arrivals from the UK need to present proof of full vaccination (2 doses). Only the paper version of the NHS COVID vaccination letter, with subject 'Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination confirmation: two doses received', will be accepted, not the digital app version, nor a printout from the digital app.

Whether a similar Manx letter would be accepted is another matter.

Pretty sure it’ll be temporary. There are advanced negotiations for reciprocal EU/UK recognition. They should both be designed to the WHO recommendations

Just had my 2nd jab this morning, all very smooth and efficient. Including the traffic warden who was booking cars parked in the disabled parking spaces outside Chester St 😄

Had an email back this morning stating that the testing centre usual hours are 9-4.
