PCR Testing Prior to Your Flight to China, Japan, or the Rest of Asia

In this article, we will discuss the PCR tests required for travel to China, Japan, and other Asian countries. In response to the ongoing pandemic, many countries require visitors to provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 test before they are allowed to enter the country, including travelers wishing to visit Asia. We will examine the PCR test in detail, its implications, and the requirements for administering it.

How is the PCR test performed?

The PCR test is performed by collecting a sample from the nasopharynx (nose lining) or throat using a swab. The sample is then sent to the laboratory for analysis. The analysis of the sample is available on the same day before midnight, and much faster if you have used the PCR-Express service.


Where can I get a PCR test?

At Reseintyg365, located in Stockholm city, our staff is available every day from 9-17 to collect your sample. After the sample is analyzed by our laboratory partner, you will receive a result indicating either negative or positive. If the result is negative, you are welcome to travel to your destination and present only the digital travel certificate or printout.


What is the cost of a PCR test?

The cost of the PCR test varies depending on where in the world you are getting tested. In some countries, the test may be free, while in others, it may cost several thousand kronor. At our facility, the cost is only 580 SEK for same-day results. The requirements for when you need to undergo the PCR test before traveling vary depending on the country you are traveling to. For example, China requires it from everyone, while Japan only requires it if you do not have a vaccination certificate with at least three doses. In some countries, the PCR test must be conducted within a certain number of days before departure, while other countries have specific requirements on when the test should be conducted. It is therefore important to check the specific requirements for the country you are visiting and plan ahead to avoid delays or travel problems.

What documents are required to show a negative PCR test result?

Some countries may also require an official translation of the test result if it is not written in the country's official language. It is important to check which documents are required to avoid travel problems.

What other COVID-19-related requirements apply to travelers to Asia?

In addition to the PCR test, there may be other requirements that travelers must meet before being allowed to travel to Asia. This may include filling out health declarations and providing proof of vaccination against COVID-19. It is important to check the specific requirements for the country you are visiting and plan ahead to avoid travel problems.
