The first minister confirms Scotland will align with the rest of the UK’s post-arrival lateral flow travel testing regime from 31 October.

It means that fully-vaccinated people, returning from non-red list countries, no longer have to take a PCR test two days after arrival in Scotland.

Instead, they will take a cheaper and simpler lateral flow test.

Passengers need to book these tests before travelling and must send a picture of their lateral flow test to verify the result.

The lateral flow tests for travel must be bought from private providers – NHS kits cannot be used.
