How can I order a test?

You can order tests directly on our website. We recommend you purchase travel kits well in advance of travel, at least five business days before your flight.

Once your order is complete, a test kit will be delivered to your home address by USPS Express mail within 2-3 business days.

For PCR kits, results will be available within 48 hours of the sample’s arrival at the lab; on average, results arrive within 24 hours of sample arrival.

Do I need to activate my kit when I receive it?

Yes. Scan the QR code on the instructions included in the kit or by clicking the Activate Your Kit button on veritasgenetics.com.

Do I need a PCR test, or is a Rapid Test okay?

Depending on where you are traveling, a negative PCR test may be required before boarding the plane. Most up-to-date travel restrictions and regulations for air travel can be found here.

Can I use a Rapid Test kit for international travel?

In some cases, yes. Depending on where you are traveling, a negative PCR test may be required before boarding the plane. Most up-to-date travel restrictions and regulations for air travel can be found here.

Our Rapid test does not meet the UK travel requirements. We encourage PCR for this purpose and Rapid for return only.

How long before my flight should I send my sample for testing?

Most destinations, including the US, require that you have a negative test done within 3 days of your flight.
For PCR kits, results will be available within 48 hours of the sample’s arrival at the lab; on average, results arrive within 24 hours of sample arrival.

We provide overnight shipping options for an additional charge.

What are the shipping costs?

Where can I find travel restrictions and regulations for the country I’m traveling to?

Travel restrictions and regulations for air travel can be found here.

For US entry, you can find the information you need here.

How should I store the Rapid Test?

Store the test kit as packaged between 35.6 – 86° F (2 – 30° C). The reagents and materials in the Rapid Test are stable until the expiration date printed on the outer packaging. Do not use the test beyond its expiration date. The test device must remain in the sealed pouch until use. Do not freeze any contents of the kit.

How do I get my results?

You will be notified by email once the results are available. The report/certificate can be accessed in the Veritas portal on a desktop or mobile device. Your test results will be in PDF format, so you can easily download them or print them out. This report/certificate helps to support the validity of your test result.

Your PCR Test report contains the following information:

  • Infectious disease tested
  • Type of test (RT-PCR)
  • Name of the lab
  • Patient’s name and date of birth
  • Provider information
  • Sample type and testing methodology
  • Date of report
  • Sample collection date
  • Date when the sample was received in the lab

Do you share COVID-19 results?

By law, labs may be required to report results to the country or state in which the tested individual resides, for contact tracing.

What type of sample is needed for testing?

The PCR Test requires a saliva sample. The collection procedure is easy: you just spit into a tube.

The International Test and Rapid Test both require a painless lower nasal swab.

All test kits come with detailed instructions on how to collect your sample correctly. For the Rapid Test, your sample collection will be supervised by one of our team members.

What is antigen testing?

Antigen tests detect the presence of proteins from SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

What happens if my PCR Test result is positive?

A positive result indicates that viral RNA was detected in the provided sample, thus confirming a diagnosis of COVID-19. Medical management should follow current CDC or other applicable state/country guidelines.

Asymptomatically infected individuals with positive results are common. Although false-positive (incorrect positive) results are rare, they have been reported and may lead to unnecessary isolation, management, and treatment.

A false positive may also occur if there was a problem with your sample or the test itself. If you are concerned about the accuracy of your results, ask your healthcare provider if you need further testing.

What happens if my Rapid Test result is positive?

A positive Rapid Test result indicates that proteins from SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) were detected, and that it is very likely that you are infected with the virus. Individuals with positive Rapid Test results are also presumed to be contagious. Therefore, it is also likely that you may be isolated to avoid spreading the virus to others.

There is a very small chance that this test can give a positive result that is wrong (a false-positive result). Your healthcare provider will work with you to determine how best to care for you based on your test result(s), along with your medical history and your symptoms.

A negative test result for this test means that proteins from SARS-CoV-2 were not present in the specimen at a level above the test’s limit of detection. A false-negative test result may occur if the level of viral protein in a sample is below the detection limit of the test.

In all cases, medical management should follow current CDC or other applicable state/country guidelines.

What does an invalid result mean?

An invalid result indicates that not all testing targets were detected in the sample. Failure to follow the test steps correctly could potentially lead to an invalid or inaccurate result. An invalid result is not acceptable for travel.

When will my PCR or International Test report/result be available?
Results are available within 48 hours of the sample’s arrival at the lab. On average, test results are available within 24 hours of sample arrival.

When will my Rapid Test certificate be available?

Your certificate will be available for download 1 hour after the completion of your telemed session.

What happens if I do not get my results back on time?

Contact our customer support and we will work with you to get you an appointment for same-day results from an in-person visit to a network of labs, pending availability.

In most countries where our service is available, we have agreements with a network of laboratories that will accommodate in-person sample collection and same-day results. Availability depends on many factors, including location, time of day, holidays, and other circumstances.

Please check and confirm your travel arrangements with your travel provider, as well as with the countries, states, and localities you may be traveling to, from, or through.
