Drive-Thru/Walk-Up PCR Testing Service

Available throughout Sydney, Newcastle, Melbourne and regional Victoria, the Drive Thru Pre Departure Covid-19 test involves attending a testing clinic to be swabbed by an experienced pathology collector. An RT-PCR test (as per airlines requirements) is then performed at the laboratory to test for Covid-19. Upon completion of your test, certified test results will be emailed to you in PDF format the next day (or possibly sooner) so you can present to your airline for your international flight departure. It is simple and easy.

If a drive thru or walk in test isn’t suitable for you why not check out our ‘At Home Pre Flight Test Services‘ for an alternative option.
