have partnered to offer Coronavirus testing at JFK Airport Terminal 1 via a Test Center in the immediate vicinity. This is an RT-PCR test (Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction Test), which detects whether there is an acute infection with the virus, and thus the risk of infecting other people they come in contact with. The detection is carried out by means of a noise or throat swab.

As restrictions on international travel are gradually being lifted, many destination countries require a medical certificate showing proof of a negative test result for Covid-19, either to gain entry or to avoid the need to quarantine. Even in cases where the destination country does not require proof of a negative result, knowing you are coronavirus free before travelling to a foreign country can give you extra peace of mind. We offer ‘safe to fly’ certificates for a small additional fee. Click the button below to use our travel calculator to work out when you need to order your test before you travel. Please check with your airline or destination country to determine how soon before departure the test has to be taken and processed by the lab.

Do you want to travel abroad again? Then it may be the case that specific requirements for preventing infection with the coronavirus (COVID-19) have been put in place in your country of destination. In some cases, a corona test (COVID-19 PCR test) is required and you will need to provide a certificate confirming that you have tested negative for COVID-19.
Travelers who complete the swab sampling procedure, they must self-isolate until the results of their PCR tests are released and they arrive to airport.

We provide the test for everybody who plans to travel by airlines. A number of countries have imposed requirements on passengers from the USA because the USA is considered a high risk by many countries. These countries require travelers to provide proof that they have recently tested negative for COVID-19 before they will be allowed to enter their country. We will test those people for COVID-19 (by appointment). For more information IATA news.
The purpose of a PCR test is to detect the presence of genetic material (RNA) from the COVID-19 virus in your nasal or oral cavity. A sample is taken from your nose and throat using a swab. We carry out this test and make sure that the results are available within 24 -32 hours. You will then receive the results in the form of a certificate in English by e-mail.
The test is a so-called aerosol-forming operation (whereby small drops of saliva are easily released into the air), therefore the nurse always wears protective aids such as splash goggles, a surgical mask, gloves and an apron.
A PCR test is a snapshot. Countries have different guidelines on the length of time after a test during which you may travel to a country based on a health certificate. Always check these countries carefully yourself and plan your appointment accordingly so that your certificate is still valid when you travel to a country.

Yes, we will get your travel and ID information while you are filling your test center application through the website or mobile application. We issue your test result as a Fit-to-Fly Certificate both in the paper-based and digitally to share with Airlines and Airport control points.
You can find out whether restrictions apply to your destination via this IATA website. The requirements and guidelines vary from country to country and also change regularly. It is important for you to check the current status yourself (e.g. on the site of your country of destination) and whether any additional certificates are required. You should also follow the information provided by your travel agent or airline.
The PCR Test results will be ready by the next day (except Saturdays and holidays.)
Test results will be sent via email and can be printed at our desk in Terminal 1 upon request.
