    Antigen test Santiago

    I need an antigen test to transit through the US. I will be in Santiago the day before I leave so looking for recommendations of where to go. Ideally somewhere reliable where there is unlikely to be a queue and I get the result within an hour. If it is near to PUCMM even better. Thanks. Adrian

    BREAKING NEWS : Republica Dominicana to remain on the red list for UK travellers.

    Mari Yes. There are two criteria that need to be fulfilled. The vaccine needs to be an approved vaccine AND the vaccine certificate needs to be accepted in the UK. For example, if you have had the Pfizer vaccine in the DR, at the moment on entry to the UK you would need to follow the rules for...

    COVID test in Santiago for US entry

    Any recommendations for the best place to get a COVID-19 test in Santiago before flying to the US? Ideally near to PUCCM, but elsewhere in Santiago would be OK. I am a little confused by what types of test are valid, but I think a LAMP test is eligible and would be the quickest and least...
