Hi all

Wondering if anyone knows or has experienced this - how long does it take to get the results of the on arrival RT PCR test at Singapore Changi Airport? The website says up to 24 hours but I am wondering if anyone has any experience and how long did it take for you?

Cheers

Last trip I arrived from Melbourne at 1630 and there was no queue for immigration at both e-gates and the regular real person desks. I collected my bags in under ten mins and made my way to the test site which is located right next to the carousel. There was no queue. I showed my passport and qr booking code and was led to the test which took 2 mins and then I was on my way. Test result came in at 10pm same day.

It was very well organised. Do remember that you still need to do 7 days of rapid tests with day 3 and 7 being supervised. There was a queue at the quick test centres for this which took about 45 mins each time. Also make sure you download the trace together app before you arrive in Singapore.

@benzqn - how were you notified of the results? SMS? Also, do they provide some sort of a PDF of the report?

I received an email stating negative result. No pdf. I am a resident so The result are also on my Singapore health record. The art test on day 3&7 I got a text message with the result

I’ve never been required to show the result. Note that you can’t use this test result to checkin to another future flight. You’ll have to get another fit-to-fly test which does come with the pdf and qr code.
