When should I book my test?
We strongly recommend checking the travel restrictions of the country you are travelling to and any you may transit through.
Please note that some countries require the hours to start from the time you land at your final destination and not the departure time from Vancouver. If you cannot confirm the restrictions, we recommend contacting your airline to confirm the maximum hours your PCR test can be taken before your flight.
Results are estimated to be returned to you approximately 18-24 hours after your test.
Test results typically take between 18-24 hours. Iridia Medical does not analyze test results as we utilize an accredited lab and have no control over the amount of time it takes for a test to be processed.
Our accredited lab operates seven days a week and our office staff work on the weekend to ensure that any test results that come in over the weekend are sent to you right away.
