Which test is right for you?
There are a few different types of COVID-19 tests available, and it is important to choose the test that is right for you. If you would like to test for antibodies to COVID-19 in response to a previous infection or vaccination, the Antibody test is recommended; however, this test will not be accepted for the purposes of travel.
If you are getting a COVID-19 test for the purpose of traveling to another country, it is important to ensure that the type of testing you have selected is accepted in your destination country.
Traveler testing for COVID-19 is required in many countries, including Mexico, Cuba, the USA, the United Kingdom, India, and China; please note that some countries require a NAAT COVID-19 test for travel, while others require a rapid antigen test for travel.
