If you're planning to leave Canberra for an overseas trip this year, you will need to prove you are COVID-free and safe to travel. In addition to being fully vaccinated, most countries require you to take a PCR test prior to departure. Failure to show a COVID-19 Travel Certificate could result in the airline refusing to board you.
Fortunately, it's not too difficult to book an RT-PCR test and get your certification for as little as $100. You can arrange a test from a number of clinics around New South Wales up to 72 hours before you fly. The amount you pay will depend on the clinic and how quickly you need the results.

PCR tests in Canberra
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.
You can find a list of clinic locations where you can book a test and receive your COVID-19 Travel Certificate.
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 New South Wales. Clinics operating in Canberra and wider New South Wales include Australian Clinical Labs, 4Cyte Pathology and Histopath.
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. Many of the 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 from Wickham Histopath Pathology Drive-Through Clinic costs $150. If you are travelling to China, you will also need to take a Blood Antibody test. Both tests combined cost $170.
