How To Get COVID-19 Test for Travel with Viselio

International travel is partially reopened.

Many EU member states require either a vaccination certificate, or proof of recovery, or a negative COVID-19 test for international travel to Europe (in form of the Green Pass aka. the COVID certificate).

Therefore we decided to create a very practical solution for travelers! Now with Viselio, you can order online your COVID-19 test for travel.

Here’s how it works. 

Check travel requirements

Before planning a trip, you need to know that travel and entry regulations are constantly changing, as countries are adjusting health measures on a regular basis. This is why we advise you to first check if travel to your destination is possible, and what COVID-tests are accepted. You can easily do that by using our Entry Monitor – a tool that will help you quickly get information about entry regulations and travel requirements.

Different types of COVID-19 test

There are different types of COVID-tests that are approved and currently used, but not all of them are accepted for travel. 

  • PCR test is the most widely accepted, however, the timeframe of when the test must be performed to be considered valid varies from country to country. Usually, the test validity is calculated starting from the time the swab is collected. But some destinations count the validity from the time the result is issued by the laboratory. You should also pay attention to whether your destination uses departure or arrival time as a reference point. If your travel time is long, having to take the test in a certain timeframe prior to arrival might be more of a challenge. Also if a molecular test or a NAAT test result is requested at your destination, feel free to go with PCRT test.
  • Antigen test is significantly faster than the PCR test, but also slightly less precise. This is why some countries keep lists of antigen test brands or manufacturers that they accept and recognize as reliable. Also, it is not uncommon that some countries accept both PCR and antigen test results. 
  • Some countries recognize positive antibody test results as proof that you had already recovered from COVID-19, or that your vaccination was successful.

Few useful tips for ordering COVID-test

1. Confirm your travel dates

Each country has different laws regarding entry or exemption from quarantine. The validity of the test is usually evaluated between 6 and 72 hours from the time when the sample was taken. We can conduct tests on short notice, but we advise you to first check what COVID-tests are accepted at your destination and how old the results can be.

2. Check the prices

Viselio can not affect the official price of COVID-tests that is decided by the country’s government and medical institutions. However, we work hard on getting the best possible testing options for our customers, which is why we are able to offer the most affordable COVID-tests for travel on the market. Please note that our service includes shipping and laboratory analysis. The price may vary depending on the type of test and market. We update our services and our prices regularly.
 
3. Follow instructions
 
For the successful process and the fastest results, it is really important to follow the instructions we give you. If at any time during the form filling or test sampling process you have a question, please visit our FAQs page. For any further assistance, feel free to reach out to us.

Why use Viselio COVID-19 testing services

It can be really challenging for travelers to get tested on time since 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.

We have created a system of COVID-testing specifically for travelers, where fast and internationally recognized results are guaranteed! Don’t just take our word for it. See what others say.
