Arrived yesterday - positive experience

We departed Heathrow on the 9:30am Virgin flight yesterday. Great flight. I'd say it was about 60% full.

Landed in BGI ahead of schedule. We hadn't paid for any kind of fast track so had to take a ticket and wait for our number before we were called for our test.

Test was quick and gentle. One nostril. Then through security and to baggage collection and out.

I can't believe how easy it was! They want to see paper copies though. I had my BIMSAFE app open and one of the airport staff told me I wouldn't need it. That was the worst bit, having to dig out various bits of paper at different points.

From landing to leaving the airport, I reckon it was about 45 mins. Results came through early hours of this morning so about a 12 hour turnaround.

I have been so anxious leading up to it but can relax now! If you are worried, like I was, try not to be. Ensure you have your print outs and all will be fine!
