How Ichor’s COVID-19 Travel Testing Program Works

Ichor has partnered with several different labs across the cities that we serve to coordinate a targeted turnaround time of 12-48 hours for PCR and test results dependant on the city you are in. This allows travellers to be tested and receive results within the 72-hour window required for most international travel.

What is a PCR test?

A PCR test is a polymerase chain reaction test and it can accurately detect active infections by identifying the genetic material of the COVID-19 virus. 

Your Options For Testing

  • In-Clinic: Book a convenient appointment at one of our locations for a quick and easy sample collection. Your test documentation will generally be delivered to you in 36-48 hours, but please allow up to 72 hours to be safe.
  • On-Site: For companies preparing employees for work-related travel, Ichor offers options for workplace testing. Connect with our team to see how we can help coordinate testing to facilitate your workforce travel plans.
  • Through Mail: Ichor Blood Services has launched a COVID-19 PCR Test by Mail Program that allows travellers to meet the 72 hours negative test requirements by purchasing kits to take with them and perform the required testing while in transit. This means that for travellers with complex and lengthy itineraries, COVID-19 testing can be completed en route through video conferencing connections with Ichor anywhere that FedEx operates.

The Benefits Of Travel Testing

  • Quick turnarounds: Ichor is partnered with several accredited labs to provide a coordinated turnaround of 48 hours for PCR test results.
  • Certified documentation of a negative test: The negative test certificate issued by Ichor Blood Services is recognized by most destination countries.
  • Avoid expensive international testing: If you fail to provide a negative test result, the destination country may require you to complete costly testing upon arrival.
  • Avoid isolation: Many countries will waive a required 10-14 day quarantine for travellers with a negative test certificate.
