There are still some countries that require a negative RT-PCR test to enter their country. Finding a 24 Hour PCR test in Bangkok was quite harder than I thought and I was having trouble finding a place that didn’t charge an insane amount and guaranteed results within 24 hours until I found Klook’s [Same Day Result] COVID-19 Pre-departure ATK and RT-PCR Test by TCR Medical Lab Clinic. TCR’s medical Lab Clinic’s testing was simple, accessible, and affordable!Klook.com
3 packages are available to purchase: Rapid or PCR test in Bangkok
- Rapid Antigen test ATK (Results within 15 mins)
- RT-PCR Test Standard
- RT-PCR Test Express Same Day
- Additional option to get a Fit-to-Fly certification
After researching the different clinics in Bangkok, I concluded that TCR’s medical Lab Clinic was the best price in Bangkok. There is no reservation required but I made a reservation through klook to make my life easier.
They are open Monday to Sunday from 8:00 to 17:00 but be sure to be at the clinic before 10am to get your results within the same day. I arrived Saturday at 9:40am and finished everything within 10 minutes. There were a couple of other people there at the same time as well.
Although it’s not in central Bangkok, it was very accessible by taxi. I paid around 100 baht from my hotel in Chinatown for a 25-minute ride to the clinic at around 9:15am. I ordered the RT-PCR standard test, along with the FIt-to-Fly certification. As soon as I walked in, the welcome counter took care of my registration, and I first presented her with my klook reservation voucher and they proceed to give me a paper to fill in. They asked where I was flying to, as well as my passport and flight number.
After my paperwork was finished, I sat down in a waiting area and waited for my name to be called. Once I was called, I sat in a chair in front of the staff and they proceed to do the Nasopharyngeal swab and Throat swab, which were done within seconds. Both were very gentle and the doctor made sure I was feeling good.
After I finished, I went back to the front desk, and they let me know that I was done and that the results will be sent through email by 19:00. The results actually came at around 15:00 through email, 7 hours after I did the test. My emails had the official medical Laboratory Report, Fit-to-Fly Certification, and the Standard Japanese form all filled out.
You can really tell that the staff is very used to providing these tests to international travelers, and everything went very smoothly. I highly recommend testing here for an easy, simple, and fast PCR test in Bangkok with results within 24 hours! There are also many reviews on their klook reservation page to see what others are saying about the experience!
