Can I use the Free COVID-19 tests for travel?

Free government-issued take-home antigen tests are not certified for travel as regulations require testing to be witnessed and certified by a health care professional. Our in-store asymptomatic covid testing service allows you to book a specific appointment date to ensure you get your results when you need them.

What are the acceptable types of COVID-19 tests for travelling?

COVID-19 travel requirements for testing vary by country and are constantly changing. Different countries may require a PCR test, rapid antigen test, or some countries may require an antibody blood test. Before you travel, check with your travel provider and destination country to determine what is required for entry.

What locations are the COVID-19 certified PCR and Rapid Antigen Tests available at?

Select London Drugs locations offer Asymptomatic COVID-19 RT-PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) and Rapid Antigen Testing. Sample collection is done in our Diagnostic Accreditation Program (DAP) approved consultation rooms in partnership with TestNTravel at select store locations in Alberta, FastTest at select London Drugs store locations in BC, or in partnership with select Care Point Medical & Wellness Clinics in the Lower Mainland.
