Frequently asked questions

Is it possible to book a test on the same day?

Yes, when you click book my appointment you will see all available times. If the time you need is not available, we will try to make an exception if it is urgent, you can book an appointment for the next available slot and then show up at our testing center in Reykjavík. Make sure to let us know when you show up so that we can find your booking in our booking system.

If you are getting tested in Akureyri, you need to confirm all appointment changes at info@covidtest.is since we need to make sure we have staff ready to greet you outside since it is drive through.

I am considering booking a test. Before I sign up, I want to confirm that the LumiraDx Rapid Antigen Test is accepted for travel back to my country?

The LumaraDx Rapid Antigen Test is a rapid antigen test which are currently accepted in the US, UK and most of the Nordics. You are responsible for verifying that Rapid Antigen tests are accepted in your country at the time of travel per our terms and conditions.

Is it a problem to show up earlier to my test, instead of 12 am I would to come at 10 am?

We generally ask that you show up at your booked time, however there is no problem showing up later or earlier time than you booked your test in Reykjavik if something in your schedule changes. Just make sure to come during our opening hours from 8:15 am to 5 pm weekdays and 9 am to 4 pm Saturdays.

If you are getting tested in Akureyri, you need to confirm all appointment changes at info@covidtest.is since we need to make sure we have staff ready to greet you outside since it is drive through.

Can I change my booking date?

No problem, just send us your details and the new booking date at info@covidtest.is.

I haven’t received my result from my test?

Customers generally receive their test results well within an hour. If we have big groups that day, the tests can delay by couple of hours. However, we try our best to do all the test as soon as possible.

Please also check your junk or spam email. If you have not had your result within 3-4 hours, please contact us at info@covidtest.is.

Is a rapid test the same as a PCR test?

No, we offer Rapid Antigen tests which are not the same as PCR tests.

A rapid antigen test detects protein fragments specific to the Coronavirus and has a very quick turnaround time for results as processing time only takes around 15 minutes.

A PCR test actually detects RNA (or genetic material) that is specific to the virus. Turnaround time is longer, generally within a couple of days, but results can be within 24 hours. These tests are only offered by the national healthcare system in Iceland.

Make sure the country you are travelling to accepts COVID-19 Rapid Antigen tests. Some countries might demand a negative PCR test.
