Hi Angie,

I don't know of any locations on La Marina, so in case you don't receive any recommendations, I think your nearest clinic location is in Guardamar:

Laboratorio De Análisis Clínicos Julian Rodriguez Nieto

Carrer Pablo Neruda

03140 Guardamar del Segura

They're open from 10.00 am to 11.30am on weekday mornings (but probably not Thursday this week, as it's a Red Day).  You don't need to make an appointment, but I'd recommend going along at about 9.50am so that you're near the front of the queue.

Kind regards,

Kim

The UK Government are talking about removing the need for pre-travel testing when returning to England. Not sure if any change would apply to all  the UK regions. They should make an announcement very soon apparently.

Aitch.

See attached on the BBC just now - only mentions England but no testing required pre-travel, plus only a antigen test required on arrival, rather than a PCR, and no need to self isolate on retrun.

I would expect the other UK countries will follow suit at some stage.

Please note that Angie said she is flying to Ireland, not the UK - these are the current rules for entry to Ireland from the 

https://www.citizensinformation.ie/en/health/covid19/public_health_measures_for_covid19.html  website:

"Travel restrictions

Under current restrictions, you can travel to any county in Ireland.

All arrivals aged 12 and over who are fully vaccinated or recovered from COVID-19 must provide either of the following:

  • A negative antigen test result (taken within 48 hours before arrival)
  • A negative RT-PCR test result (taken within 72 hours before arrival)

The test result must be certified and not self-administered.

If you are not fully vaccinated or recovered, you must show a negative RT-PCR test taken within 72 hours before your arrival.

You do not need to provide any tests if your journey started in Northern Ireland and you were not overseas in the 14 days before you arrived."

Kind regards,

Kim

You are lucky, it has been announced that fully vaccinated going to IRELAND  no longer require a test from mid night today. Zdenek also from Ireland, check web - www.breakingnews.ie

Hi Kimmy, you are a VERY HELPFUL person. As you help so many people even the ones from Ireland. Ireland has from midnight ceased tests for fully vaccinated people coming in. Zdenek, ref. www.breakingnews.ie
