Important notes

  • PCR testing is a test with limited sensitivity (the probability that an infected person is judged positive) and specificity (the probability that an non-infected person is judged negative). It is possible that the presence or absence of infection and the test results do not match.
  • Depending on the travel destination, there may be strict requirements regarding the timing of the PCR test (e.g., within 72 hours before boarding the aircraft or 72 hours before entry into the country).Therefore, depending on the date of travel, it may not be possible to issue a certificate in time. Please contact us in advance for details on the schedule.
  • Test specimens are transported to the testing company. Please note that we will not be held liable if certificate issuance is delayed due to delays during transport.
  • In rare cases, the test results may be put on hold and certificate issuance may be delayed. Please note that we are not responsible in this case.
  • Please check the necessary documents for boarding and entering the destination country and the conditions for PCR inspection. We are not responsible for any documents other than PCR inspection results.
