See below information for guidelines and prices:

PCR test – valid 72 hours

  • To be taken 2 days before departure
  • Results and certificate given within 24 hours by e-mail
  • Cost: €100.00

Rapid Antigens (lateral flow) test – valid 24 hours

  • To be taken same day or within 24 hours of departure
  • Results and certificate given on site within 10-15 minutes of test
