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

Labtests perform COVID-19 PCR testing at their laboratory in Mount Wellington, Auckland.  Please note that samples received at Northland Pathology are couriered to Auckland, often overnight, consequently we advise travellers to arrange for testing in Auckland.

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