Clinical Labs COVID-19 Testing for Travel (VIC)


Many countries are requesting that international travellers complete a COVID-19 PCR and/or Antibody Test before boarding their flight.

Clinical Labs is now offering travellers the ability to purchase the below COVID-19 tests for travel through our secure web portal (store.clinicallabs.com.au).

  • COVID-19 PCR Test for Travel
  • Combined COVID-19 PCR and Antibody (IgG and IgM) Test

These tests are available for asymptomatic travellers only and there is no Medicare rebate available. A doctor's referral is not required. Travellers are emailed a referral form once they purchase their test.

Travellers can order a test by:

  • Visiting store.clinicallabs.com.au where they create an account, and order and pay for their test.
  • Travellers are then sent a confirmation email that contains the receipt/referral.
  • They need to print this out and take with them to a Clinical Labs Travel Collection Centre (see clinicallabs.com.au/travel for listing), along with a form of photo ID (passport or driver’s licence).
  • After completing the test, their sample will be processed within 48 hours and they will be sent an SMS notification when their result is ready. 
  • Travellers then log back into store.clinicallabs.com.au where they can download their results certificate which contains all the required information to meet international travel requirements.
