Travel Testing

Canada HealthLabs travel testing uses PCR and rapid tests to satisfy proof of COVID-19 negative status required for travel.

Samples are collected at CHL's downtown Toronto testing centre, or customized sample collection can be arranged at designated locations. CHL now offers remote telehealth-observed testing to further support your testing needs while travelling. We can support your testing needs both before you leave, and as you get ready to return.

New international travel regulations require travellers to provide negative results of a recognized COVID-19 test prior to departure. The test type required varies by destination and by transportation provider.

Most countries and airlines require a negative molecular test (PCR or RT-LAMP) prior to departure. CHL also offers rapid antigen testing when antigen tests are accepted. Check airline and government entry requirements to decide which test is accepted for your trip.

CHL provides travel testing in downtown Toronto in the Concourse Level of TD Tower. Click here for directions and map. You can also choose one of our telehealth remote-observed testing services. Pick up your test kit before you depart on your trip or, where time permits, we can ship the kit to you.

Results for PCR test samples collected at the Toronto testing centre before 5 PM will be available before 11 AM the next day. Results for molecular RT-LAMP tests are available within 30 minutes after the sample is collected. Results for rapid antigen testing are available in under 20 minutes.
