If you need a COVID-19 test result as quickly as possible, a rapid antigen test (RAT) is definitely your best option. These kits can be used at home without a medical professional and do not require you to send the test to a lab. Results typically take under 30 minutes.
A pack of 5 tests typically costs $20-$30.
To find RAT kits near you, head to our guide on where to buy COVID home test kits. Some rapid antigen tests are also being offered for free to concession and health care cardholders.
We're checking availability for RAT testing kits regularly but delivery times are subject to change. All tests sold in Australia must be approved by the TGA. Some sellers try and charge prices far above the average ("price gouging"). This isn't legal in Australia. Always consider your options carefully before buying.
If you record a positive RAT test, it is important you report it to the Department of Health and Human Services Victoria.
