COVID-19 Testing for travel 

With international travel ramping up WiSE is happy to help you get on your way. WiSE has been accredited by the International Airline Transport Association (IATA) to issue travel PCR tests. 

A PCR test looks for fragments of COVID-19 virus in your body and is the most accurate form of testing for coronavirus. This test is what most countries require for you to enter,  and is performed via swab in the nose and throat.

With Airlines and Countries having their own different requirements, it can be confusing for you to know what type of test needs to be conducted along with the time frame it needs to be conducted in.
