A RT-PCR takes at least 4 hours once it gets to the lab. Unlike the 15 minute test, a RT_PCR test requires a reverse transcription, (RT) process. Did mine in the states took 7 hours to get the lab rep

Is the covid test that is required antigen?

From the Q&A page on a embassy website.

"10) What type of COVID test is needed?

  • Upon checking in at the departure airport, the approved applicant is required to present a medical certificate with a laboratory result using RT-PCR test indicating that COVID -19 is not detected. Such COVID-19 test result must be issued no more than 72 hours before departure."

What happens if you have a connecting flight? For example you fly from London on the 21st January at 2pm with a connection in Doha.

 

You take the pcr test on the 18th January at 2.15pm.  You would be withn the 72 hour time frame for your 1st flight but would be outside the 72 hour time frame for the 2nd connecting flight from Doha.

Would that matter or is it only the 1st flight that counts?

Another potential scenario i was thinking of is if your flight gets delayed it could end up putting you outside the 72 hour flight period.  I hope it would still be accepted under such circumstances.

If you show up on time  but your flight is delayed it's not your fault, then you will be boarded anyway

Cheers had abit of problem at Luthansa check in  Heathrow saying I need to show quarantine for 21 days but they presumed I was flying to Hong Kong???? Anyway got my luggage checked in for free saving £85 by their check in manager after clearing up the mistake, lot of pissing about in BKK airport but very well organised. Day 2 of quarantine now, wished I had brought a bottle of something as luggage was not checked in once at the hotel
