Persons leaving the country are, as a rule, to book their appointment at Mehiläinen testing station. Visitors leaving the country are primarily expected to pay for their tests.

Travellers are advised to take into consideration the fact that the result of the PCR test is available approximately within 1 to 3 days whether you are tested at Mehiläinen or our laboratory.  If your schedule does not allow you to go to Mehiläinen for the test, we may make an exception and test you at the flu clinic.
