How to Get a PCR Test for Travel in Philadelphia

Drip Hydration offers a variety of different Covid tests. A Covid test is required for many forms of international travel, but the results of most Covid tests can take long periods of time to return— not ideal for any travel or expediency!

The rapid PCR test offers results to the testee in 60 minutes and has been shown to hold a high degree of accuracy in the test results. This article will discuss the steps involved in getting a rapid PCR test versus getting an RT-PCR test.


The RT-PCR test, sometimes called the “molecular test,” is considered a good standard for Covid testing. The test involves several steps. First, a medical professional administers a nasal swab or a throat swab to the patient. The patient waits two to three days for the results, and afterward, a highly accurate result comes back to the patient.

The severe drawback to the RT-PCR test is its expediency. If you are getting tested for Covid to travel internationally, most countries require the test to be from less than 24 hours before the end of your scheduled flight. If you have to wait for three days for the results, the RT-PCR test will be money wasted.

Rapid PCR Test

The main advantage that a rapid PCR test provides is its expediency. Once the test is administered, it only takes 60 minutes for your results to come back. Then, our team will attach your results to a certified email that will allow you to travel or give you peace of mind if you start experiencing Covid symptoms.
