Are you looking for a COVID PCR test where you get the result the same day? Are you going to travel and have little time to wait for the COVID-19 PCR test result and your non-COVID travel certificate? The solution: PCR Test Netherlands. A fast, reliable COVID-19 PCR test where you receive your test result and your travel certificate by email the same day.
Rapid COVID-19 PCR test
Many test centers in The Netherlands need a minimum of 36 – 48 hours, sometimes 72 hours, before you receive the results of a COVID-19 PCR test. This can cause a lot of stress and hassle, especially when you have to catch a plane, for example. And the GGD does not issue a travel certificate, which you do need for many countries.
The COVID-19 PCR test via PCR Test Netherlands quickly provides the necessary clarity, the same day! A PCR COVID-19 test has now become a strict requirement for many countries and airlines to travel. This because there can be serious consequences when an airline takes a COVID-19 positive passenger somewhere abroad.
KLM has been punished by the Chinese aviation authority CAAC because six passengers of the airline turned out to be positive for COVID-19 upon arrival. In retaliation, KLM is therefore not allowed to take travelers on flights to Hangzhou for the next two weeks.Luchtvaartnieuws 26.04.2021
Such a travel certificate therefore offers more certainty that your trip can proceed as planned. PCR Test Netherlands are really specialized in – if booked on time – giving the results the same day, which is (often) not the case with many other test centers, or uncertain.
Planning a COVID-19 test in The Netherlands
You need a COVID-19 PCR test with non-COVID certificate, for example to be able to travel abroad by plane. You have no COVID-19 related symptoms. Then make an test appointment with PCR Test Netherlands. Test today = result today*.

- Den Haag – Wassenaar
- Eindhoven airport
- Maastricht airport

- Go in quarantine between the test and your departure and upon your return. The Dutch Parliament submitted a bill to the Senate to be able to give a fine of € 435 for people who ignore the quantaine obligation upon arrival in The Netherlands as of mid-May 2021.
