When traveling, will local authorities request to see my Covid-19 test results?
Yes, most countries will request a negative Covid-19 test before letting you enter. The type of test required may vary. For more information, check out official sources from your target country.
What types of tests are there? Do they vary in efficiency?
There are four types of tests being performed across the globe, at the moment:
PCR and Antigen tests detect ongoing infections. These tests are effective in both symptomatic and asymptomatic cases.
Antibody tests, on the other hand, aim to detect past infections. And, according to the CDC, they do so with considerable efficiency.
PCR and RT-PCR are considered extremely precise, with Antigen tests being less accurate, but still reliable. Learn more about these types of tests.
How often should I get tested during my trip?
The CDC recommends that travelers get tested 1-3 days before traveling, and 3-5 days after they’ve returned to their home country. It’s also wise to self-quarantine before and after your trip
How much does a test cost?
Test prices may vary from testing location to testing location, and from country to country. Different testing methods may also impact price. Contact your preferred testing lab for more information.
I did not receive my test results in time, what do I do?
We’re sorry. Delayed test results are nothing to be happy about and can significantly impact your trip. If you haven’t received your test results within the expected period, contact your testing location to discuss your options. If you’re unhappy with their services, don’t hesitate to leave a review. Your experience can help other travelers.
Do you test children?
Our goal is to help you find testing locations near you, but we don’t conduct tests ourselves.
Each testing location has its own rules & regulations. Contact the facility that you would like to get tested at and ask if they can test your children.
I found a testing location near me, but the contact information is wrong. What should I do?
We go out of our way to make sure all information is correct. If you find that a listing has inaccurate contact information, one of two things may have happened:
- The testing location may have changed their contact information without warning.
- A detail may have slipped under our radar.
Regardless, we’ll be extremely thankful if you let us know! Don’t hesitate to contact us, point out the mistake, and explain where we could find the correct information.
