It’s evident that Covid-19 has changed the way we go about our daily lives and it has greatly impacted the way we travel. In 2020 the travel sector was brought to its knees and many people had to cancel their travel plans. Fortunately, things are returning to normal with airlines opening up most routes. This is, of course, thanks to the PCR test as a good number of countries and airlines are now asking their visitors and passengers to provide proof of a negative Covid-19 test.

What is a COVID-19 PCR test?

A PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) test is used to mainly use find the presence of the Covid-19 virus antigens instead of the presence of antibodies. The test is only possible if someone actively has the virus infection. The tests have the ability to identify the virus very early in someone who may be infected. This is made possible because of the presence of viral RNA (ribonucleic acid) in the body prior to the formation of antibodies or the onset of the disease’s symptoms. PCR tests indicate clearly who has the infection and who doesn’t have it.

The Covid-19 PCR test is meant for people who intend to travel outside the country for a holiday or for any other reason. Most countries and airlines now require that any traveller should have a document or certificate that proves they don’t have Covid-19 at the time of travel before they are allowed entry. It’s important to note that the PCR test is not for anyone who has symptoms related to Covid-19 or who has exhibited symptoms for about 28 days before taking the test. These people have to follow the government’s guidelines regarding testing and self-isolation.
