COVID Covid Testing on a FRIDAY afternoon or later in Santiago dC.


New Member
Two members of our party are returning to the United States on a Sunday morning flight out of Santiago.

Does anyone have experience on getting a valid Covid test on a Friday afternoon/evening and getting the results in hand for a flight on Sunday morning? If so, with which lab?

Thank you very much!

The answer is "it's incredibly difficult".

But, the best that I found is the HM hospital.

They can book an appointment for a rapid antigen COVID test for a friday at 16:00.. They do not perform COVID tests on weekends. The results are in Spanish and English and the cost is 40€.

If one wants to make a reservation, one needs to send a copy of one's passport or ID and a contact phone number to as soon as possible.
