Type of sample collection requested

A throat swab, best for detecting live virus (our most popular test)

A deep nasal swab, best for detecting both live virus and viral remnants

Type of sample collection requested

A throat swab, best for detecting live virus only.

Note: Viruses often infect the Oropharynx before the Nasopharynx. This means that a virus sometimes becomes detectable earlier in an Oropharyngeal sample than a Nasopharyngeal sample, before symptoms start.

Note: Once symptoms start, the immune system starts to eliminate the virus more quickly. Dead viral remnants tend to be eliminated (removed) from the Oropharynx before the Nasopharynx. This means that test results from Oropharyngeal samples often become negative before Nasopharyngeal samples at the end of an infection.

A deep nasal swab, best for detecting both live virus and viral remnants. This sample helps to better detect SARS-CoV-2, Influenza or RSV RNA once you already have symptoms.

Type of sample collection requested

A deep nasal swab, best for detecting both live virus and viral remnants

A non-invasive sample collection with minimal amount of saliva

Frequently asked questions

Why do I need a Covid-19 travel certificate?

Many airlines and destinations require travellers to carry a Covid-19 Travel Certificate as proof that they are not contagious with SARS-CoV-2 (please check with the airline or the embassy of the country you are travelling to whether you need a Covid-19 test travel certificate). Your Lilium Travel Certificate will confirm your full name as it appears in your passport, your passport number, your date of birth, the exact date and time the test was performed, the original test report, a stamp, and a QR code that links to the original test report and certificate. The QR codes are valid for 120 hours after you took the test; after that, they are deleted from our servers. We recommend that you print the Certificate and Test Report if you will be traveling.


How do I know what kind of Covid test I need for travel?

Not all destinations require a Covid test for entry, but many do. Your airline or the embassy of the country you are traveling to will be able to tell you whether taking a PCR test for travel is necessary. Likewise, check on time requirements before you schedule your Covid test. Most countries require you to take the test 24, 48 or 72 hours before your flight, but times are subject to change.


What if my test comes back positive?

If your test is positive, you will receive a signed laboratory test report with a QR code that is valid for 180 days. You will not receive a Travel Certificate as you will not be allowed to travel until you are negative or no longer have symptoms. However, your signed laboratory test report can be used as proof for future travel to those countries that accept a positive laboratory test report instead of requiring a new test. Many of the destinations that accept this also require a Certificate of Recovery that you can apply for ten days after your positive test. Our Certificate of Recovery is $79, but the price is reduced to $49 if you had your positive test result with us. To book a Certificate of Recovery, please click here.
