The 149th Open at Royal St George's
The 149th Open is part of the Government’s Event’s Research Programme (ERP), and as such a requirement for all attendees aged 11 or over is to have either:
a) proof of a double vaccination, or
b) proof of a negative Lateral Flow Test (LFT).
This page provides detail about how to obtain this proof.
International attendees will be required to produce a negative Lateral Flow Test in order to gain entry to The Open.
Lateral Flow Tests can be ordered to the address where you are staying via this link, or they can be picked from a local chemist (find your nearest pick up point here).Test results can then be uploaded to the NHS Self Report Tool, which will provide you with a confirmation email and text message which can be shown at the entry gates. Our guide for international fans using the NHS Self Report Tool can be found here.
