Do you have questions about Corona testing and travel? We are happy to help you. View our frequently asked questions or contact us.

What should I bring to the test?
  • A valid passport
  • The flight ticket / travel information
  • A payment method
Do I have to come to the test on an empty stomach?
No. You can eat and drink just anything. Taking a throat swab does cause some irritation in the throat for some people.
For whom is the PCR and serological tests needed?
For anyone who wants to enter Morocco and is older than 11 years. This means that children under 11 years old don’t needto be tested.
Why can't I go to the GGD?
In the Netherlands, the GGD only tests people who have complaints. People who travel often have no complaints and therefore cannot go to the GGD. In addition, the GGD does not issue a COVID-19 PCR certificate for a negative test, which is requested by many countries.

Furthermore, the GGD does not use serological tests.

How long does testing take?

The test takes approximately 15 minutes per person.

How do I stay healthy at my destination?
The most important thing is to stay healthy on your journey. Therefore, stick to the hygiene measures.

  • Wash hands, cough and sneeze inside elbow
  • Wash your hands regularly
  • Don’t shake hands
  • If possible, keep 1.5 meters away
  • Stay in your hotel or cottage if you get a cold

We also recommend that you pay close attention to whether you can keep enough distance from busy places such as the airport, markets, shops and restaurants. It is preferable to look for places where you can sit outside

What are the symptoms of the Coronavirus?
Most people experience a feeling of flu and have complaints such as cold, runny nose, sneezing, sore throat, mild cough, increase, fatigue, fever and / or chest tightness. SARS-CoV-2 is different from the well-known coronaviruses that occur in humans. A reduction in smell and taste is also common
Am I immune if my Corona test is positive?
It has not yet been established that people who have antibodies are fully protected against a new infection.

The presence of antibodies does, however, make people less susceptible if they encounter the virus again. This means that your body prevents a new infection with the virus, or ensures that you get no or minimal complaints.
