We send out all our travel certificates via email as a PDF file.
Many countries approve the presentation of the certificate on their mobile phone, but some countries require a hard copy, so we recommend that everyone print the certificate.
A special sampling stick is taken and inserted at the back of the nose to the posterior pharyngeal wall. There, the stick is rotated ten times against the mucous membrane. The sample is then sent to our accredited safety laboratory and analyzed. You will receive an answer and can pick up an English travel certificate at our clinic 2 weekdays later. The certificate is issued by our licensed physician.

The test is then analyzed on site and you will receive an answer after 15 minutes.
A simple stick in the finger. The blood is dropped into a test cassette and then travels along a membrane where up to three lines can be shown. C - means CONTROL LINE. If it does not appear, the test is invalid and must be repeated. Then there are two more dashes that can appear - one for IgM (acute antibodies) and one for IgG (memory antibodies). See “What are antibodies” under FAQ for interpretation.
If two or more streaks appear, it indicates an ongoing or ongoing infection. The sampler will explain what this means for you.
No, you do not have to.
Our samples are sent to ISO17025-accredited laboratory. It is thus approved by the Public Health Agency for the diagnosis of COVID-19. All assays are qRT-PCR.
The antigen test we use is from American Abbott and has a very high specificity (> 99.8%) and sensitivity (> 91.4%). A positive antigen test can be confirmed with a PCR test as false positive responses may occur due to cross-reactivity with other viruses.
See information at your country's embassy about how old the certificate may be when you arrive.
Then include 2h buffer after your arrival time, add your travel time.
We recommend that you have at least a 6 hour margin from the time you receive the answer to your certificate until you travel.
Example: The certificate must be 72 hours old. Expect 2h buffer on arrival for passport control, luggage etc - 6h (sample travel time) - 6h buffer before departure. If the response time on the certificate is 36h, you need to test at the earliest 70h before arrival (= 72h minus buffer 2h) and no later than 2 + 6 + 6 + 34 = 48h before arrival.
As a rule, it is no problem to travel with our certificates.
Some countries, including Haiti, French Polynesia and others, require the laboratory to use certain analytical fluids approved by them.
If there is such a requirements specification, you must check that you can travel with our documentation.
The certificates can be printed with a scanned stamp and signed by a doctor.
The certificates also contain a QR code that can be scanned at the airport and you can then verify the certificate information online.
The PCR test result always comes in the evening - before 11 pm the day after you performed the test, regardless of weekend, big weekend or weekday.
If you have done a PCR Express Test, you will receive it in the evening - before 11 pm on the same day as you performed the test.
Visit the Ministry for Foreign Affairs' trip and see what applies to your country. If necessary - visit your country's embassy website.
We only test you if you have been hassle-free for at least 48h. NOTE! No exceptions are made to this rule!
The time is calculated from the time when you perform the test with us. It is the day and time that is on the certificate.
No, you can be a tourist and still get to test yourself and get an issued travel certificate. The important thing is that you have your passport / travel document with you at the time of the test with us.
a) Serological tests - a test that detects the presence or absence of antibodies. This test can detect a long-term infection (months - years) and can detect a recent infection (from day 3-5) The sample material consists of serum, plasma or whole blood.
b) Nucleic acid detection - PCR - a type of test where you look for a specific sequence of eg a virus and look for its presence in a sample. This provides a snapshot of whether the virus is present in the patient at this time. Gets negative early in the process and when the virus is no longer present in the body. Cannot distinguish between infectious and inactivated virus. Cannot detect past infection. Taken via tops in nose.
All analyzes for PCR are performed via so-called qRT-PCR, ie quantitative analyzes.
c) Antigen test
A rapid test to detect ongoing infection. Taken via tops in the nose. Answers are given within 15 minutes. To investigate symptomatic individuals of Covid-19.
