PCR tests in Brisbane
COVID-19 testing for pre-departure international travel clearance is only available at private pathology collection centres. This means you cannot rely on a free test from a COVID-19 testing clinic. Instead, you will need to pay a fee for a COVID-19 Travel Certificate.
The amount you pay will depend on the clinic and how quickly you need the results. You can find a list of clinic locations and compare prices in the table above.
How to book a PCR test from Brisbane airport
Safework Laboratories offers express PCR testing from Brisbane Airport.
This test is required for international travel to most countries and meets the needs of all destination governments. You can book a test at Brisbane airport online or call 1300 905 180 for more information.
How to book a PCR test before arriving at the airport
A number of private clinics provide RT-PCR tests for travel from collection centre locations around Queensland. Clinics operating in Brisbane include Australian Clinical Labs, Safework Laboratories and Healius.
To book a test, simply head to the website of your preferred (or most local) testing provider and follow the relevant appointment booking instructions outlined. Some testing locations don't actually require an appointment and offer services on a walk-in basis.
How much do express PCR tests cost?
An express RT-PCR swab test costs around $150 at most clinics in Australia. If you are travelling to China, you will also need to take a blood antibody test. Both tests combined cost in the region of $200.
