COVID-19 Travel Testing

More countries are now requiring travellers to present a negative COVID-19 test certificate or other documentation confirming they are not currently infected with the virus before granting them entry. Ichor Blood Services can provide COVID-19 active infection testing as well as serology IgM/IgG antibody to satisfy this requirement, ensuring you don’t get stuck at the airport and miss your important trip. 

Ichor Blood Services has been recognized as an approved testing partner of Air Canada for their Hawaii Safe Travels Program which allows for inbound passengers to forgo quarantine on arrival. 

With a targeted turnaround time of 48 hours for test results, our PCR test for active COVID-19 infections and IgM/IgG serology test for antibodies can be the difference between getting to your destination or being grounded indefinitely.

Don’t let COVID-19 ruin your trip

As international travel begins to open up again, countries around the world are starting to require those who wish to enter their borders to provide documentation that proves they are not currently infected with SARS-CoV-2. These 'negative COVID-19 certificates' as they’re being called are currently required by most destination countries.

In some countries, having a negative COVID-19 certificate can save you from having to pay a steep price for one upon arrival. Or it can let you forego having to self-isolate for two weeks.

With Ichor’s COVID-19 travel testing program, you’ll be able to get to where you need to go and have the supporting documentation necessary to do so smoothly.

Our COVID-19 travel testing team will work closely with you to make sure your test results are available and valid when you arrive at customs.
