International travel is resuming again, with many adjustments and health safety as a top priority.
All countries are trying to contain the spread of COVID-19 with arriving travelers by following coronavirus pandemic restrictions. The safety protocol many are practicing is mandatory proof of negative COVID-19 test on entry. However, this protocol is fast-changing, and the type of test that is required may vary from county to country.
To help out travelers keep up with the requirements regarding COVID-19 testing for travel, we decided to publish the most important information on a weekly basis.

Why use Viselio COVID-19 testing services
It can be really challenging for travelers to get tested on time, as many countries are requiring documentation of a negative COVID-test within a limited timeframe (24-72 hours before your trip).
You can get tested in a number of places including some pharmacies, private and public clinics, hospitals, etc. However, published turnaround times of test results vary greatly – from an hour to 5 days, and reality does not always match expectations… This is why many travelers have horrible experiences – from missing their flights or overspending to catch the first next one, to having to cancel their trips without any refunds.
