Is the covid 19 testing still available in anti Paros or Paros? as me and my family need negative tests results to board our return flight back home to the uae. Any information on pcr testing would be grateful

Hi I am looking for a place in Paros to get a Covid test. Where can we go for this as I need it to be within 72 hours of us traveling back home. How long will it take to receive the results? Let me know. Thanx.

You can go here:
“Medi-Paros Medical Center” https://www.mediparos.gr/en/

Many thanks for the Info – unfortunately the COVID Info is only available in Greek 🙂
But I will try to contact the center in order to pre-book a PCR Test.

Maybe you can try Google translate but calling is probably better.

why test must be so expensive, 80 euros per person is far from what it cost. Do you need to make such a profit from a test that in many other countries, including the one I came from [Israel] is given for free

Hi, me and my family will reach antiparos in june for a week. Where can we make the PCR test valid for the return flight? Thank you

My partner and I are arriving in Antiparos on 15 September 2021 until 22 September 2021. We will need PCR test within 72 hours of flying home to UK. Are we able to book an appointment for this at the Medical Centre on Antiparos or do we have to go to Paros. If so can you please give me details of the centre where we have to book our appointment. Thank you.
