General Terms and Conditions

Summary of General Terms and Conditions

24 hours cancellation policy

Even before the customer is tested, we incur expenses for the appointment, such as purchasing materials, scheduling doctors and other personnel, etc. For this reason, we have a strict 24-hour cancellation policy in place: this means that if a customer cancels 24 hours (or earlier) in advance, the full amount will be refunded. If a customer cancels the appointment within the 24-hour period, there will be no refund. This also applies to bookings made and cancelled within 24 hours before the time of the appointment; if you book an appointment that will take place within 24 hours, you automatically and tacitly waive the right to a refund. It will then only be possible to reschedule, with a maximum of two reschedules. Please note: if the time of the appointment has already passed, it is no longer possible to reschedule the appointment.

If you cancel before 24 hours before the appointment, your payment will be refunded within ten working days. We can only transfer the refund to the same bank account number from which the payment was made.

Information required for certificate

Every week, we help many satisfied customers obtain a travel certificate that allows them to travel worldwide. We try to take into account as much as possible the requirements that individual countries set for travel certificates. However, due to the ever-changing rules that each country sets on these certificates, it is impossible for us to take responsibility for this; these rules can change by the day, and it is up to the customer to deal with this, for example by enquiring at the relevant embassy or Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Statements made by our staff, as well as on our website, concerning entry restrictions, permitted types of tests and validity of certificates, are to be regarded as non-binding advice and are in no way authoritative. No rights can therefore be derived from them.

Deadline for submitting certificate

We try to live up to our “tested in the morning, result the same day” working method at all times. However, there are situations in which this is impossible: PCR or serological tests are analysed by people and it may unexpectedly take longer to generate a result. Although we will make every effort to deliver within the timeframe we have set, in some cases a result may not be delivered within the timeframe we have set. The responsibility for the timely scheduling of a test, factoring in a 24-hour delay in scheduling a test, lies entirely with the customer. We are in no way liable for missing a flight or a (work-related) appointment.

Factors that can influence a result

A PCR test is the most reliable way of determining whether the subject is infected with the corona virus. However, there are also factors that can prevent a result: for example, smoking, eating or drinking just before the sample is taken, as well as using mouthwash and consuming alcoholic beverages. These are factors that are known to us, but this does not exclude others. If there is an inconclusive result, we will re-test the sample and make every effort to generate a result. If this is not possible, we will ask the customer to make a new appointment; we are not liable for the consequences of the above situations.

Providing correct information

We ask our customers to make an appointment online in order to provide the correct personal details and to minimise any delay in submitting the certificate to the relevant authorities. You can change the data entered after making your appointment using the link you will receive via e-mail. If any information needs to be added during registration at the clinic, a € 15 administration fee will be charged. We are not liable in any way for any incorrect information on the certificate, and therefore ask you to check all the information on the certificate. The responsibility for providing the correct personal details lies entirely with the customer.

  • 2.6 The customer and Microbe&Lab BV explicitly agree that by using electronic communication forms a valid agreement is formed when the conditions in Articles 2.4 and 2.5 are fulfilled.
