So the lab across the street from Playero - Laboratorio Clinico Puerto Plata - (ph 809.586.3030 ) don't have any PCR tests available today. I asked about tomorrow and they told me to call and check tomorrow.

Does anyone know of another place that offers them?

Do we know of a place that offers them on Sundays?

Great. Are they going to have shortages in the DR like Canada and the USA now. I really want to come to POP but if this is the start of test shortages I will not take a chance until Turdeau drops the testing requirement 72 hours prior to take off

The number (809.586.3030) connects to their main lab (on Beller) in Puerto Plata which is where all PCR samples are sent to for testing. The Sosua lab can only give the Antigen results. As far as any other labs in Sosua for a PCR result, the answer is there is no one else that I have heard of. However , there maybe a lab in Cabarete next to the Banca Santa Cruz (several doors to the left) which you might want to try.

In Puerto Plata, I have been told that these 2 facilities also can provide the PCR testing results....

I thought the DR would be in a great position going into the new year after this press release one month ago.

Give them a call first as they may not do the PCR testing.

Rapid antigen tests are not acceptable for entry into Canada. Passengers arriving without the correct test are subject to quarantine and punitive fines of $5000.00 or more.

You will not leave the country without a proper PCR test. The airline will not let you board without

No pcr tests today in sosua FYI
I heard that POP labs in Sosua has run out of tests again. Sounds like this is going to an ongoing occurrence going forward. I am not aware of any other location in Sousa where one can get a PCR test within the 72 hour limit that is accepted at check in for a flight. Going to POP to get one is risky time wise and very inconvenient if you need to go back to the lab to get a paper copy of the results. Here is hoping that govts soon, especially those testing passengers again on arrival, do away with this foreign test requirement. Not holding my breath though.

A friend went to Referencia Lab in POP yesterday for PCR test. Was in and out in very few minutes. And got results electronically by 2 pm. No return trip to POP required.
