Pre-Departure Testing

We are approved by the Ministry of Health to provide pre-departure COVID-19 testing for travellers. Individuals without any upcoming travel can also be voluntarily tested without any supporting documents or MOH approval.

Timeframe for Pre-Departure Testing

As per the latest guideline by the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China, passengers going to China via direct flights must take a COVID-19 nucleic acid and COVID-19 anti-body tests within 2 days before boarding, as well as another nucleic acid test 3 days before boarding. The type of antibody test required would be dependent on your vaccination status.

For travellers to other destinations, the pre-departure COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing should generally be done within 72 hours before the scheduled flight.

The entry requirements for each destination are subjected to changes as the COVID-19 pandemic situation evolves. We strongly advise that individuals check for the latest requirements with the relevant authority for their destinations.

Timing of Test Results

Barring any delay by the laboratory or other unforeseen circumstances, you should receive your results memorandum via e-mail in the evening on the same day if the test is done before cut-off time at 11am. Results for tests done after the cut-off time would be received in the evening on the following day. You are strongly advised to print the memo before travelling.
