COVID-19 Testing (including same day PCR results)

We reopened on Monday 10 January 2022, with some changes to our PCR testing. We are only providing COVID-19 testing for international travellers: those departing Australia and those arriving into Australia. We will continue to provide the same service, with a more efficient way of running the process. Bookings can be made ONLINE only. Please choose your date and time carefully.

You will need to pay your invoice from tyro (received from noreply@ecommerce.tyro.com) within 24 hours of receiving your invoice otherwise your appointment will be cancelled. Please check your junk mail. If your invoice is not paid within 24 hours of receiving your invoice you will not be tested. Due to the limited number of bookings we want to ensure patients who adhere to our policies are tested given limited numbers.

Please make sure you wear a mask, bring both your passport and travel itinerary. Those patients arriving into Australia will also be required to provide their itinerary.

Please note we only conduct a limited number of tests to ensure we provide timely results.

The requirements set by a country and an airline could be different. We strongly recommend that you check both requirements before booking your COVID-19 test at CBD Doctors Melbourne.

The majority of airlines require a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test before travelling. We continue to have direct communication with airlines and different embassies to ensure the certificates provided meet their requirements

We suggest the COVID-19 RT-PCR test is done as close to the flight as possible. Our policies allow re-scheduling if you need it.

We are an independent medical clinic, and our COVID-19 testing is provided by well-trained health professionals.
