Rapid antigen tests for passengers at Hull port

From Tuesday 19th January, the Dutch government require everyone travelling to the Netherlands via ferry to take a rapid antigen COVID-19 test at their point of departure. This is in addition to requiring a certificate showing a negative test result from a COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of travel and a signed negative declaration form. You will also need to self-isolate for 10 days on arrival.


To streamline your travel plans, we are able to provide rapid antigen coronavirus tests to both freight drivers and essential workers travelling from the port of Hull. This service will be available every day of the week between 2pm and 7pm from Monday 18th January. The tests cost £29 plus VAT (total payable £34.80) and are available until 30th June 2021. On arrival at the port, you will be directed to the building where your test will be carried out. If your test result is negative you can continue on to check-in.


Those with a positive test result will not be able to travel and will be directed to a hotel accepting positive coronavirus cases in Bradford if they’re unable to return home.


We are really pleased to be able to support our valued freight customers and essential workers through offering this testing service.
