FAQ's

Is Appletree COVID testing service suitable for my airline or destination?

Not all airlines or destinations have the same requirements in terms of COVID-19 testing. Appletree’s COVID-19 test type, testing window and results’ turnaround time may not be suitable for your particular airline or destination.

***IMPORTANT***
Review your airline or final destination’s requirements as it pertains to COVID-19 testing and confirm that the type of test offered by Appletree meets these requirements.

Appletree IS NOT RESPONSIBLE for confirming or validating this information on your behalf. It is the patient’s responsibility to be aware of this information and Appletree will not offer refunds for related issues.

What type of test do you offer?

We Offer COVID-19 PCR/NAAT Swab Testing.

The COVID-19 swab test is a polymerase chain reaction (PCR)/nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT), which tells you if you have COVID-19 at the time of the test. The test uses a sample collected from a person’s nose, using a non-invasive swab that goes approximately 1cm into the nostril. The test will not tell you if you had COVID-19 in the past.

*Please review your airline or final destination’s requirements as it pertains to COVID-19 testing. Appletree’s COVID-19 test type, testing window and results’ turnaround time may not be suitable for your particular airline or destination.

If you require a pre-travel COVID-19 test, please ensure that you meet the requirements below:

  • You are asymptomatic (you do not have any symptoms);
  • You have not travelled in the last 14 days;
  • You have not been in close contact with a positive case;

  • For travellers, you understand that your testing MUST be done within 60 to 72 hours prior to your departure and that results will be available 48 to 52 hours after you have completed your test.*

For what reason can I book a test?

There are various reasons for which you may want to get tested. Whether it is for school, work, travel purposes or simply for your own peace of mind you can book an appointment to use our COVID-19 testing service, as long as you are asymptomatic (do not show any symptoms of COVID-19)!

When should I get tested?

For travel purposes:

Your results will take 48 to 52 hours after you have completed your test to be sent to you and therefore you cannot be tested in less than 60 hours prior to your flight.
