    Covid Test

    We did our Pcr Rapids today, got the results in about 10 min! However they only listed my first and last name on the lab report. I remember the Aruba outline said they wanted to see the name as it appears on the passport, well my middle name is also on my passport. Is my first and last name on the lab results good enough?

    Also it clearly states it was a PCR test but doesn't say it was a nasal swab just a PCR. So I asked the doctor to give me a signed paper stating it was a nasal swab. He actually listed it was a nasopharyngeal. Anyway hopefully that will get us in but being my first time I'm still a little stressed about it.

    I think that the passport name discrepancy is not an issue.


    I am unsure about the signed Dr letter/affadavit.
    Nasopharyngeal must be listed on the test result.

    Wishing you much good luck, please let us know how it goes.
    Worst case scenario is that you have to retest there and then quarantine til results come thru.

    My middle name is on my passport, but wasn't on the test results. It was no problem at the airport. You're going to be fine, start making that restaurant list!

    I also have a middle name on my passport and hubby has a middle initial. Neither were on the results and it was fine.

    Add me and my husband to this list as well. Middle name on passport, not on test and we had no issues in October last year.

    Enjoy your trip!!
