Sakariye was absolutely wonderful and very comforting when taking my sample and answering questions I had about my symptoms. You all are very lucky to have such a pleasant person working for the public. What a health hero!

Simply Outstanding! From the crew in Sterling answering my questions, to the crew in Arlington doing the tests, everyone is just awesome. I've had the best customer service experience I have had in many many years, if not the best. We needed the 1-3 hour rapid PCR for my daughters' flights the next morning and they helped us take care of it promptly with zero wait, and a very reasonable price. Better price than anything we found in the DC Metro area, Virginia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York. So lucky I found them in my online search. Not only that, the appointment set up system was so easy! First you find the test and location you want, then you input all your personal information, unlike other providers that make you enter your information first before you find out they don't have appointments available. And I didn't have to open accounts in order to set up an appointment. Best experience ever. Thank you ladies and gentlemen! You are awesome.

Wow this has to be one of the friendliest company's I've ever corresponded with. I needed a PCR test within 24 hours for a flight. They responded so quickly to my questions and reassured me that they would be there to assist. When flight restrictions changed because I was fully vaccinated, they gladly cancelled my appointment free of charge. If you need a test done immediately and want excellent customer service, I strongly recommend Resource Path!

Important information for international travelers

Some countries still require a negative Reverse Transcription-Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) test or Antigen Rapid Test for entry.  When booking your appointment, select COVID19 RT-PCR for travel.  Even if the country you are traveling to does not require a negative result from a COVID-19 test, it is still advisable to take a test before and after traveling to keep yourself, your community, and your family safe.

RT-PCR tests detect active infection at the exact time you take the test.  To minimize the chance of travelers becoming contagious in the days following testing, airlines and destination countries set guidelines as to how close to your departure date you must take your test.  ResourcePath offers RT-PCR tests for same day, 24 hour and 48 hour turnaround time. 

Formal laboratory reports are typically required for international travel.  Reports from ResourcePath will include: 

  • Full name as listed on passport
  • Date of birth
  • Date and time of test
  • Test result (i.e. NEGATIVE)
  • Date and time of result report
  • Electronic Physician signature (ink signed upon request)
  • Type of test and methods used
  • Verification of laboratory licensure (CLIA license)
  • Verification of laboratory accreditation (CAP number)

ResourcePath can help you with additional documentation that your airline or destination country may require.  These may include things like: 

  • Copy of CLIA certificate
  • Physician verification letter (Hong Kong and others)
  • Country-specific forms (Japan)
  • Reagents used (China)

If you need any additional documents for your travel, please let us know by emailing us at

A passport or driver’s license ID number being placed in the report ensures there is no question about the traveler’s identity. Please bring one or the other with you to your appointment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will insurance cover the costs of testing for travel?

Some insurance companies will cover non-medical COVID19 testing and others will not.  Because we are out of network, we request upfront payment from travelers.  If your company will cover travel testing, we are happy to provide you with a receipt so that you may submit a claim for reimbursement.

What if I arrive in a vehicle from a rideshare service? (Uber, Lyft, etc.)

That is no problem at all. Frequently, travelers will not have an automobile while visiting. However they still need COVID-19 testing to catch their flight. When you arrive for your appointment, give the lab a call and let us know the make, model and color of the car you are in and we will still happily test you!

What if my test comes back positive or inconclusive?

With the prevalence of COVID-19 infection in the community, an occasional traveler will test positive, or “inconclusive” for virus.  When this happens, we will call you immediately to relay our findings and obtain more information about your situation. Based on your history we may recommend repeat testing to ensure you are not contagious, or antibody testing to confirm a past COVID-19 infection. 

If you have previously had COVID-19 infection, please note that our RT-PCR tests are very sensitive and can intermittently detect virus for weeks/months even after the active infection period (10-14 days) has passed.  Since a negative result is required for travel, you may need to perform one or more repeat tests on subsequent days to achieve a negative result.  

Do I need a doctor's order?

If you would like to be tested but do not have a physician, or you do not meet illness requirements for your physician, the Commonwealth of Virginia allows patients to order their own laboratory tests for Coronavirus. We can also test individuals younger than 18 with parental permission.
