    Covid PCR Rapid test

    Ive been trying to find the best and fastest way to get tested without waiting 2-4 days and hope the test comes back in time. I found a place that will do a PCR rapid (20 min results) but the Lab tech was a little worried that Aruba wouldn't take it. On their website is says PCR Rapid was accepted along with others. Anyway has anyone cleared Aruba airport with the PCR Rapid?

    Molecular Test requirements

    Only For Option 1: Molecular testing prior to travel to Aruba

    The Government of Aruba requires the test to be a COVID-19 test, obtained from a nasal swab specimen through amplified Molecular testing performed by a certified lab, and the results need to be uploaded as part of the ED card process.
    Your lab results need to be in English, Dutch or Spanish, and list:

    · Your name, as it appears on passport
    · Date the test was collected
    · "COVID-19", "SARS-CoV-2" or "Coronavirus"
    · The type of Molecular test or Molecular test brand name (see below)
    · How the test was taken: "Nasal", "Nasopharyngeal", "Mid-turbinate", "Combined Oral/Nasal", or "Combined Oral/Nasopharyngeal", or "Combined Oral/Mid-turbinate" swab
    · Your test result: "Negative"
    Tests that are accepted:
    Accepted Molecular test types:
    · PCR / RT-PCR / ddPCR / Rapid PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction)
    · NAA / NAAT (Nucleic Acid Amplification)
    · AMP PRB (Amplified Probe)
    · LAMP (Loop-mediated Isothermal Amplification)
    · TMA (Transcription-mediated Amplification)
    Accepted Molecular test brands, such as, but not limited to:
    · Abbott ID NOW - Only when results include the original thermal receipt / sticker, or results are verifiable through an email or patient portal.

    · Cobas Qualitative PCR
    · FTD PCR
    · Xpert Xpress
    · Simplexa Direct PCR

    Tests that are not accepted:
    · Any at-home kits or self administered tests (the sample needs to be collected by licensed medical staff)
    o With the exception of Vault Health
    · Any test that does not rely on a nasal swab, such as:
    o Sputum, saliva and spit collection (spit in a cup, etc)
    o Gargle, oral rinse, etc
    o Oral swab without a nasal swab
    o With the exception of Vault Health
    · All Antigen (Ag) tests (including Quidel Sophia, Abbott BinaxNOW and Rapid Antigen Tests)
    · All Antibody tests (such as IgG, IgA, IgM and Rapid Antibody Tests)
    · All blood tests (such as fingerstick, venipuncture)
    · All plasma tests
    · All serum tests
    · All lateral flow tests
    · All fever checks
    · All temperature checks

    Upload any of these, or an inauthentic test result, you will be required to retake the PCR test on arrival at the Airport at your expense.
