For International travel you MUST have a nasal swab (RT-PCR) test. This is the gold standard for accuracy and recognized and accepted globally for travel. The issue however is that these countries require you to have a PCR test within 48 to 96 hours of the arrival date (avg 72 hrs) 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 able to provide both the 30 Minute and SAME DAY RT-PCR
Note - for Domestic travel they you ‘may’ also require a RT - PCR or an 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 would like to use insurance to pay for the lab processing, and then inform you of the timing and results options. Your options are EXPRESS , or SAME DAY or NEXT DAY RESULTS. This selection will depend on when you board your International flight and when the airline or desitnation country requires your result. Please see the sample lab report and ensure that it meets the necessary airlines/country standards. COVID Testing LLC cannot be held liable for your misinterpretation of the requirements. Check the testing cut off times for each site, as it may vary.
EXPRESS 30 Minute RT-PCR = $195
SAME DAY RT-PCR = $155
Express Results – are provided by 6pm . Same Day – are provided by Midnight. Next Day are provided by 8pm the following day
The additional fees for the Express and Same day results were 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 in the morning and you want to play things safe, then get the Express or SAME DAY results.
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.
To re-enter the United states you will require an ANTIGEN test. While both your outbound airport AND the USA airport you and in may offer the antigen, there is widely varying costs, wait lines, and accuracy that is cause for concern. You can avoid this issue by simply purchasing one of our Self Administered Antigen tests’ and then receiving our clias lab report that can then be shown upon re-entry. Please check out ‘Home kits and PPE’ page for more details.
While travel only requires a PCR, we encourage everyone to take advantage of the combo (PCR, Antigen 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, the antigen showing you if you are infectious and contagious (in only 10 minutes) and the serology test identifying antibodies (in only 15 minutes), you are completely covered!
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. Additionally, the Chinese government is requesting a specific IgM result form be submitted along with the already required PCR result form. This combination of tests specific to China can be performed at our 33rd street location (only), between 8:00 and 12:00pm Monday thru Sundays.
Both forms will be emailed to you by 11pm the same night. The fee for this new IgM test is $150 Cash / Credit).
Many airlines traveling to Hong Kong Require a copy of the test lab’s CLIA license.
From a recent airline we received the following :
Hong Kong Travel Document Requirement
Documentary proof (in English or Chinese) to show that the laboratory or healthcare institution is ISO 15189 accredited or is recognized or approved by the relevant authority of the government of the place in which the laboratory or healthcare institution is located. This can be in the form of a copy of ‘Certificate of Accreditation’, ‘Certificate of Compliance’, or information printed out from an official government website.
Documentary proof is required even if the test report from the laboratory or healthcare institution contains an ISO accreditation reference.
Thank you so much for helping us get our results a bit early for us during our trip to CANADA. It was greatly appreciated. We had no issues crossing the border thanks to you.
