Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):
1. Can I take the COVID-19 PCR test without an appointment?
Yes, we do accept walk-ins subject to availability based on existing appointments. However, we highly encourage you to book an appointment in order to get your test done in a timely manner.

2. What is the required testing window?
Pre-Departure COVID-19 PCR Swab Test
The required testing window depends on the requirements set out by your destination country. For ease of reference, this should be at least 48 or 72 hours prior to your flight. Please check the relevant travel advisories for all destinations in your itinerary to ensure that you meet the latest requirements.

Pre-Event Testing (ART)
You should come for ART no more than 24 hours before the end of the event. To illustrate, if your event will be held from 9am to 12pm, you should visit the clinic for ART after 12pm on the day before. Your ART results will typically be valid for 24 hours.

3. If my flight timing has changed, can I still come for my appointment?
Yes, you may still come for your appointment. Please bring along your updated flight details/itinerary on the day of your appointment.

4. What if the COVID-19 Swab Tests result is positive?
Pre-departure Swab Test
If the COVID-19 PCR Swab Test result is positive, we will not be able to issue a memo for your departure.

Antigen Rapid Test/ Pre-Event Testing
You should immediately self-isolate at home for 72hours. At the end of 72 hours, you should do a self-administered ART.
If you test negative, you can exit self-isolation and resume normal activities.
If you continue to test positive, continue to self-isolate and self-test until you obtain a negative result OR until 12pm on Day 7 (for vaccinated individuals and children below 12 years old) or Day 14 (for unvaccinated / partially vaccinated individuals aged 12 years old and above), without a need to test, whichever is earlier. The day you first tested positive is Day 1.and we we will conduct a COVID-19 PCR test to confirm the test results. While the COVID-19 PCR results are being processed, you would need to isolate yourself at home.
