Currently, it is imperative to be well informed of local, national and international requirements related to the COVID-19 pandemic before traveling.
our area of residence may have restricted movements (e.g. perimeter closures) and the regulations and recommendations in force at any given time must be followed.
In addition, the requirements change very frequently, making it necessary to be vigilant and repeat information searches. Special attention must be paid to both the exact type of tests accepted by the authorities and the time frame in which the tests must be performed prior to travel; in many cases they are required to be performed within 72 hours, but there may be other periods.
Once the tests admitted by the Authorities and the deadlines for their performance are known, it is necessary to look for a health center that offers them. Usually it will be a private center because the public health system does not specifically provide this service.
If you have travel assistance insurance or private health insurance, it is advisable to contact them because some offer information on centers for testing and access to them at discounted prices. Only if the results are negative, you can travel. If the results are positive, the trip will be cancelled and you should contact the health center for assessment and management of the case.
