Who would have thought that now, a year later, we would be required to have something like RT-PCR tests and travel certificates to be able to travel to many countries. Many may ask, what exactly is an RT-PCR test and a travel certificate? Does it take a long time to get it and how far in advance do I have to book to get it in time for my departure? Let’s take a closer look at the different concepts and how PharmaUse Testcenter can make your preparations for the trip easier.
RT-PCR stands for “Reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction” which is a laboratory technology that is mainly used to measure the amount of a specific RNA. The RT-PCR tests are both effective and accurate in finding viral RNA that is specific for the Coronavirus.
The reason why these tests are the ones that are requested by many countries for entry into the country is the fact that they can detect a COVID-19 infection even before the person has become contagious. This prevents an infected person from transmitting the virus to other hosts. This unique capability makes RT-PCR testing the gold standard when it comes to tracking and stopping SARS-CoV-2. RT-PCR tests are taken by swab in the posterior nasal wall and / or pharynx. The places where the SARS – CoV-2 virus thrives and thrives.
If you are planning a trip to Spain, Greece, France or perhaps any other country this spring, you will need a travel certificate. Travel certificate is the certificate you receive when you take an RT – PCR test that is negative. You will then receive a certificate signed by a doctor showing that you are not infected with COVID-19. This is the certificate called a travel certificate, which you may be asked to present at check-in or entry into a country.
Remember to check each country’s entry requirements before you come and take the test. Because each country requires different types of certificates and because the rules can be changed quickly. This both in terms of the requirements for how old a test may be and in terms of which test each country requires to have taken. It is always best to check with the official pages of the country you are planning to travel to.
