Notice to travelers

The Government of Quebec does not take care of pre-travel screening tests. Confirmation of a screening test result from one of our testing clinics will not specify the type of test you received and therefore may not be eligible for the purposes of boarding a plane and entering a foreign country.

We encourage you to consult the following  list of private laboratories that are able to provide tests and results for travelling purposes.
