Update: Pre-Departure COVID-19 Testing

Pre-Departure COVID-19 PCR Testing for China-Bound Flights Departing from New Zealand

Wellington SCL performs COVID-19 PCR pre-departure testing, at our Wellington Hospital laboratory, on a daily basis. 

Please note that we endeavour to process samples for pre-departure testing (separate samples collected 48 hours and then 24 hours prior to departure) on the day they are received at the laboratory, however we cannot guarantee results will be available for request of green health QR code, or Health Declaration Form in time to allow passenger departure.
