COVID19 testing

  • Private clinics around the country perform PCR (~230km) and serological (~40km) COVID-19 tests. Payment is due in full at the time of the test. Results are quick (usually within 24 hours).
  • Public Health Centers (Dom Zdravlja) will test people with symptoms—regardless of nationality—free of charge. (They do not test asymptomatic people or provide test verification for travel purposes). To arrange a test, contact your canton’s health center for additional guidance.
