    I believe that the kits are brought to UPS for immediate shipping.
    I think they have to be by UPS store by a certain time in order for it all to work.
    Also too write on the outer box INTERNATIONAL or ARUBA.
    Vacation Vault should have a label too that goes on the outer box showing that you are traveling internationally.

    I have heard of NO ONE being disappointed on the timing of its arrival back to where the test is processed.

Did you or anyone else using VAULT have an issue getting the results back in time to add it to the EDI card ?

    Thanks in advance and have a great time !!
    AIDTM THINK.. is it Thoughtful? Helpful? Inspirational? Necessary? Kind?

    No issue with Vault I took the test twice and both times quick turnaround. When you first ordered the test there was a check mark for travel or other purpose. The travel test kit comes with color code for expedited service usually pink circle or square. If you take the test on Wednesday try to do it early am and drop off on prepaid UPS package in am as well between 9am to 10am. Next day Thursday afternoon Vault will confirm the lab received package and late Thursday 7-9pm or Friday morning they will confirm test results. When you are on zoom meeting they ask for the UPS pre label so that they can email that they received once you send it to UPS store.

    Ace, is correct. Have your drivers licence ready and make sure your zoom is working.they are so friendly and helpful. I would check with my local UPS about their daily pickup time. Ours was 5:30 pm and we got our results thursday eve. They will let you multiple people do the zoom call with same nurse. You just have to register the other kits separately. Dont stress it is easier than you think. No eating or drinking anything for 30 minutes prior. Make sure your color printer is ready to go.

    TMARSH, We brought our own gear. We will do night fishing off beach and day fishing in the Spanish lagoon. We are sure our off shore fishing will happen with Covid. But we will try our best.
    19 degrees tonight here. Can't believe we will be having lunch in Aruba tomorrow. We will hit duty free in Newark 5h8s morn8ng so cocktails will flow tomorrow.

    We have a pact with the group of friends we travel with that there is to be no judgement for recycled outfits during the trip. We go for 7-10 days, an try to do carry on only. It’s really the accessories that are killer (Yeti cups, dry bag for phones, soft sided cooler for the beach, and the shoes, it’s always the shoes!
