A current COVID-19 infection is tested via the PCR test, done by a nose-throat swab. IHCH’s travel clinic is pleased to offer the COVID-19 PCR-test.
Please note this test is only intended if you are currently asymptomatic, in other words, you have no symptoms of COVID-19. If you have symptoms, or have been in contact with someone with COVID-19, you need to contact the Dutch municipal health organization (GGD) to get tested.
Some countries require a recent negative PCR test to allow entry, you can find an overview for international travel here. Please check with the country you are traveling to before booking a test. Different countries have different requirements, and it is important that you are aware of these requirements before you book a test with us.
You can expect the results to be back in 2 days time. Keep in mind however, that we are closed on weekends. This means that if you are travelling on a Tuesday and the country you are traveling to requires a result no older than 72 hours, we are unfortunately unable to accommodate your request. The PCR test is done by a third party laboratory and therefore we cannot guarantee that your results will be available within 48hrs. The majority of the time, the results are back within 48hours.
If your country of entry requires that you have your passport number on the certificate, please notify us when you come for the appointment and bring your passport along to the appointment.
Please find an example of the certificate here.
The cost for the PCR test is €150-, or €165- if you are not registered with the IHCH GP practice. Tests can be arranged by appointment only.
