COVID-19 Tests for Travel to Hong Kong and Japan

June 14, 2022

Beginning September 7th, 2022 you are no longer required to obtain an inspection certificate (pre-departure negative test result) before departing the U.S. for Japan if you are fully vaccinated. However, if you are not fully vaccinated you will still be required to take a pre-departure test and receive a negative result. We are one of few labs listed on the Embassy of Japan, Washington, D.C List of Local Clinics that can issue a Negative Certificate. Our lab will gladly complete the required Japan Certificate of Testing for COVID-19 from the Quarantine Station, Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, and Japanese Government. We will email the completed form along with our formal travel report within the turnaround time you select at no additional cost! To determine if you need a pre-departure test, we strongly recommend checking out the travel requirements for Japan before you leave. 

Travel to Hong Kong requires Documentary proof in English or Chinese to show that the laboratory or healthcare institution is ISO 15189 accredited or is recognized or approved by the relevant authority of the government of the place in which the laboratory or healthcare institution is located. The full entry requirements are located here. Our travel reports will include all necessary and required certification acceptable for travel as we are CLIA and CAP certified.
