2015-2019 walked all or more than half of CF 7 times... CP recently cancelled by Covid 19!

$24 for 2 tests. Take with you to Spain, best to ship to destination. ?heat sensitive.
Seems to be same Binax test offered by American Airlines for $150 [6 pack]. But states on eMed that it's not approved for int'l travel,not sure why.
If PCR test was previously required to exit USA then this test for international travel would not have been suitable...maybe one explanation (international travel begins when you depart from ). Not everyone examines the requirements as carefully as this group!

CDC: PCR or Ag

I think the issue is the 2pack version doesn't have the Navica mobile app authenticator. It seems just for personal info at home, not as formal as needed for border crossing. Same test though.

Note: it is advertised on American Airlines site for int'l travellers returning to USA.

Exactly. A home test that hasn't been monitored to confirm who took the test would not be accepted.

Antigen Self Test kits are currently being sold up from 2€ in Germany. I can not imagine them being significantly more expensive in Spain (or hard to come by).
Anyways, they are usually just being used for testing in shopping malls etc (or now: have been). For mandatory testing (for crossing borders etc) you could not use an antigen self test but were recquired to do a PCR test.(i think as of this moment, you dont need a test at all)
