For International travel you MUST have a nasal swab (PCR) test. This is the gold standard for accuracy and recognized and accepted globally for travel. The issue we see however is that these countries require you to have a PCR test within 48 to 96 hours of the arrival date and unfortunately most providers of the test cannot produce the result in time. At Covid Testing LLC we have addressed and answered this challenge by being the one and only PCR testing service that produces the results in both NEXT DAY and SAME DAY (for a nominal rush charge).
For Domestic travel they you ‘may’ require a PCR or a Serology / Antigen test. You will need to identify the requirements and come prepared to tell us what you need. There are simply too many states and airlines setting requirements for our team to know what YOU NEED. Whatever traveling test requirement, we can likely assist you, as long as you have time to get the test required, and YOU know what type of test you need.
When you arrive at the site, tell the Patient Advisor you are traveling and require a PCR. The Patient Advisor will ask if you have insurance and then inform you of the options. Your options of SAME DAY or NEXT DAY RESULTS will be determined by when you board your International flight. Please see the sample lab report and qualify the airlines/country requirements. COVID Testing LLC cannot be held liable for your misinterpretation of the requirements.
If you have Health Insurance/Medicare/Medicaid - the NEXT DAY delivery of results (By Midnight of the next day you are swabbed) is $35. The traveler who has Health Insurance/Medicare/Medicaid will be expected to pay $75 for this SAME DAY service.
If you do not have Health Insurance/Medicare/Medicaid - the NEXT DAY delivery of results by Midnight is $115. For those needing a SAME DAY result it is $115 PLUS $40 for a total of $155.
*Insurance coverage may vary based upon individual carrier rate.
SAME DAY lab results – are available only to patients arriving BEFORE NOON. A PCR test takes 8 to 10 hours to process so lab results are emailed to you by midnight. Your lab result is emailed to you by Midnight. Please reconfirm the email address with the Patient Advisor you will be completing the paperwork with.
NEXT DAY lab results – are emailed to the patient by midnight on the day following your specimen collection.
The additional fee for a SAME DAY result was kept at a minimum for a good reason. We want travelers to have a buffer of time when trying to meet these international flight requirements mandated by the government of each country. If you have the opportunity to get to the site before noon and you want to play things safe, then get the same day results package. Getting quarantined, not allowed to board, paying $350 for a test upon arrival, missing a business meeting, or just ruining a vacation, are just some of the reasons we suggest you calculate your risks.
We also encourage everyone to take advantage of the combo (PCR and Antibody tests) to obtain a complete COVID analysis. Orlando has a higher average number of people who have had COVID and do not even know they had it as they were asymptomatic. Between the PCR identifying the virus from day 1 to 15, and the serology test identifying antibodies after day 5, You will have a complete COVID Analysis by the NEXT DAY!
Disclaimer: While we are continually receiving information from travel related organizations regarding current requirements, we recognize that Covid regulations are ever changing and we can therefore NOT guarantee the accuracy of information as it pertains to the timing of a test needed for a specific country. We ask that you check with the relevant authorities prior to taking a PCR test. Covid Testing LLC will not be responsible should your travel plans be interrupted due to the timing of testing and your results.
Recent changes by the Chinese government now require both a PCR and an IgM test to be taken 48 hours prior to arrival.

Both forms will be emailed to you by 11pm the same night. The fee for this new IgM test is $100 Cash / Credit). We cannot accept insurance. See sample form (left)
