All about the travel certificate
If you have a negative PCR test result, you will receive an international travel certificate. You can then travel to Italy with this certificate. The document will be checked on five points:
- The type of test: in our case it is the 'PCR' test.
- The test result: it should be negative.
- The first and last name: this should match the passport.
- The date and time of the test.
- The details of the institute or laboratory that administered the test.
What's a coronagraph?
A coronate test is a test that can show whether a person is infected with the COVID-19 virus. There are different types of coronate tests, such as a antigen rapid test and a PCR test. A rapid test gives the result within 30 minutes, so you know very quickly whether you are infected with the virus at that moment. The result of a PCR test takes a little longer (max. 24 hours), but is more accurate. Moreover, the PCR test comes with an international travel certificate, which is a requirement for entering many countries. An antigen rapid test does not contain this and is therefore not always suitable to travel with.
Both the corona rapid test and the PCR test (including travel certificate) can be taken at one of our five testing locations. Book easily a appointment for a coronation test on the date of your choice!
