An RT-PCR test (RNA test) may also be needed on entry or exit of the country, as well as to diagnose infection in people with Covid-19 symptoms.

Price: 38.00 EUR

Antigen test

The antigen test detects the protein on the surface of the virus using a swab from the nasal and / or throat mucosa. This test belongs to the group of rapid tests - the result can be obtained in 15 minutes. An antigen test may be required when traveling.
