Rapid antigen tests (RATs) are a quick way to detect COVID-19. Find out who should do a RAT for COVID-19 and what to do if you get a positive result.

COVID-19 PCR testing clinics are available across NSW for people who need a PCR test.

Information on how to receive your PCR test result, including how to register for SMS, is provided when you get tested.

Translating and interpreting services are available at clinics. Ask the clinic to call 131 450.

Clinic hours are updated regularly. This list displays opening hours for the next 7 days and includes any planned closures or reduced hours during holiday periods. Please check the opening hours before attending.

Once you have been tested, you must go straight home and self-isolate until you get your result, unless advised otherwise by NSW Health. Don't stop off along the way.

COVID-19 testing for travelling overseas

Some countries and airlines require a pre-departure PCR (nose and throat swab) test result at check-in before you will be allowed to board your flight. Travellers should check the entry requirements of the country they are travelling to, and their airline's requirements.

COVID-19 testing for international travel clearance purposes (departures) is conducted at private pathology clinics only and charges apply for this service.

If you return a negative test result, you will be issued with a testing clearance certificate which you will need to board your flight or vessel. You may be required to book for this service.
