Speed PCR test China

To travel to China, two negative PCR tests with two different reagents are needed. The tests must be taken within 48 hours before departure, one of which must be taken within 24 hours before departure. Quite a puzzle. Therefore, Coronalab offers an Emergency PCR test for China that can be booked in addition to the regular PCR test. You will receive a travel certificate from us of this, if tested negative, with your COVID-19 status.

Note: Two tests must be taken to travel to China. A normal PCR test (€69) and a China Emergency PCR test (€126). These should be scheduled separately and taken on different days. Please contact us with any questions.

How does the Speed PCR test China work?

At Coronalab.eu you can now easily book two PCR tests with different reagents. You book your first (regular) PCR test easily in one of our clinics in the Netherlands. Be sure to schedule this test no later than 48 hours before departure. You will receive the results of this test the same evening.

You book the second PCR test, the China Rush PCR test, for a time after your first PCR test, but no later than 24 hours before departure. From this test, if you were tested in the morning, you will receive the results by 3:30 pm. If you are tested in the afternoon you will have the results by 9:00 pm. This will give you plenty of time to upload your results for the HS or HDC.
