Pre-Travel RT- PCR COVID Testing
They were very fast in getting the results back to us (in the same day) and Rod was so nice to give us his direct number in case we had a question. Everything went very smoothly. The only negative point is the price. It’s high. We paid $250 each. But we did get excellent service and since the tests are not sent out (they do them on site) we knew they couldn’t get lost or be delayed. That was a comfort to know before our international flight.
Provided the results of the COVID-19 test for travel within the necessary timeframe. Fast, comfortable, responsible. Recommend.
We had excellent and very responsive service. We went for a pre-travel Covid test and the process couldn’t be smoother. We received our test results same day. Highly recommend. Thanks, Dr. Rod!
Vitality always gets my family members and me in as soon as possible. Facility is clean and professional, appointment is quick, and staff is so very kind and informative. They also went out of their way to help my daughter feel more at ease.
Thank You Vitality!

Vitality Urgent Care provides RT-PCR COVID-19 tests in our testing facility by appointment only. Our team is dedicated to delivering results with a turn-around time of fewer than 8 hours. We understand the tight travel deadlines and wish to provide peace of mind for your next trip.
What Kind of Pre-Travel COVID-19 Tests does Vitality Urgent Care Offer and Why?
- RT-PCR (Real-Time PCR) / NAAT (Nucleic Acid Amplification Test). The nasal test has been authorized by the FDA. Xpert® Xpress SARS-CoV-2 is a rapid real-time RT-PCR test developed by Cepheid. Results < 2 hours.
- RT-PCR (Real-Time PCR) / NAAT (Nucleic Acid Amplification Test) COVID-19 is a nasal or oral swab that has been authorized by the FDA and developed by Thermo Fisher Scientific. This test has been authorized for the qualitative detection of nucleic acid from the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Results < 8 hours.
We selected this particular technology for Pre-Travel testing due to it being highly accurate and one of the most reliable tests currently available. They are accepted as the “gold standard” for Pre-Travel COVID testing.
In addition, many countries require incoming visitors to have a negative RT-PCR/ NAAT or PCR COVID-19 test 48 – 72 hours prior to entry. Most countries will reject the proof of a negative Antigen/Rapid test, so it is important to be aware of the country’s specific requirements in place for entry during the COVID-19 pandemic.
