I need a test result for a trip

Your advice

Are you visiting a country that asks for a test certificate? Make an appointment at a commercial test location. Search online for a test location nearby.

So, you can't visit the GGD to take a test for travelling abroad. A negative test result from the GGD is not a valid test certificate for travelling.

Where to test for your trip?

Choose a test location

Need a negative test result from a PCR test or antigen test? This is not provided by GGD. Book an appointment at a commercial test location. You need to pay for the costs yourself.

  • You'll get the test result via email or on paper.
  • When making an appointment, ask if you can show the result from the CoronaCheck app.
  • Schedule your appointment on time, so you'll get the result before your trip.
  • Check whether you need an antigen of PCR test.
