FROM TOMORROW: COVID-19 TESTING AT THE OHRID ST. PAUL THE APOSTLE AIRPORT
With the beginning of the summer flight schedule at the Ohrid St. Paul the Apostle Airport and in accordance with the requirements of many countries for a mandatory negative COVID -19 test as a prerequisite for air travel, the Laboratory of Genetics and Personalized Medicine at the Zan Mitrev Clinic will provide Covid-19 testing, i.e., antigen testing at the Ohrid Airport just before passenger departure.
Tomorrow (Saturday May 8), our COVID-19 testing point will be set up near the entrance of the Ohrid St. Paul the Apostle Airport terminal.
The COVID-19 testing point will operate on days when there are flights to countries requiring a negative antigen test, 4 hours before the departure time.
The COVID-19 testing center of the Zan Mitrev Clinic provides convenience to all passengers traveling from the Ohrid St. Paul the Apostle Airport especially to EU / Schengen countries, so that they will have ample time to undergo antigen testing before entering the airport terminal and complete all airport procedures.
For more details, please contact the Zan Mitrev Laboratory at: +389 2 3091484 or visit our website at the following link: https://zmc.mk/en/services/microbiological-laboratory /.
For more information on tests accepted by EU / Schengen countries, please contact the Embassy of the country of your arrival.
If passengers decide to be tested at the Ohrid St. Paul the Apostle Airport, we urge them to arrive at the airport at least 4 hours before departure time, to avoid crowds and grouping in front of the airport terminal.
At the moment, our COVID-19 testing point at the Ohrid Airport provides antigen and PCR testing approved by the WHO.
For all other types of COVID-19 tests, we invite passengers to make them in an authorized laboratory before arriving at the airport.
Given the current situation in which the EU / Schengen countries are constantly changing travel rules related to COVID-19 and given the fact that each country independently makes changes in terms of travel restrictions for the citizens of the Republic of North Macedonia, we appeal to passengers to check the latest travel requirements with their airline and the Embassy of the country of arrival before their flight.
