Soriana PCR test


Recommended Posts

I called the national number and also the local Chapala Soriana.

Both confirm that this location is currently out of testing supplies, and could not tell me when they will be back in stock to resume administering Covid tests.

The PCR still costs $2990; the antigen is $489.

Thanks, jrod. So it's not a question of not doing it, it's that they can't for now.

That's my understanding. This location has run out of supplies before. Neither person I spoke with could give me an ETA for the needed testing supplies to arrive.

And if you do the airport, get there very early.  It took me 4 1/2 last Sunday to get mine.  Fortunately, my flight was delayed or I would have missed it.

 

You were able to get the results of a PCR test the same day????  An antigen test is ready in minutes but a PCR requires 6+ hours in a laboratory.

I just did the quick test.  There were some Canadians there getting the PCR but those I talked to were there a day or two earlier than their flights to give them time to get the results back.

How long for air travel is the Antigen test good for?

 USA  

 If you are arriving on a direct flight to the United States, your test must be done within the 3 calendar days before your flight to the United States departs. If you are arriving to the United States via one or more connecting flights, your test must be done in the 3 days before the first flight in your itinerary, but only if the connecting flights were booked as a single passenger booking with a final destination in the United States and any layovers no longer than 24 hours. If your connecting flight to the US was booked separately or a layover in your itinerary lasts longer than 24 hours or your travel is disrupted and you leave the airport, you will need to get tested within the 3 days before your flight that arrives in the US.

The Antigen "quick" test only works for flights to the USA. All other countries requiring a test ask for a PCR test which will be next day results. The OP was inquiring about PCR.
