    About the RapidReturn COVID-19 Test Kit

    This test is best for US travelers returning home from international travel. It is convenient, easy to use, and fits perfectly in your carry-on luggage.

    Before you leave home, purchase your kits and pack them in your carry-on luggage. When it’s time to take your return test, log on to (click here) 3 days before your scheduled return flight. No appointment needed - this service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

    Tip: Use the contact information you would like your results sent to. For example, use your cell phone number and an email address that you check while traveling instead of your office number and work email.

    Once you have activated your kit, a guide will be with you shortly to help you through the easy sample collection process.

    Once your sample is collected, you will test it using the testing solution provided. This takes about 10 minutes. A guide will view the result and tell you if you are COVID positive or negative.

    When the test is over, you will be sent a link to view and download your results via a secure email and text message. As a security feature, you’ll need to enter your name and date of birth to view your results.

    This is a Nucleic Acid Amplification (NAAT) Rapid Antigen test. Your sample is collected via a self-administered nasal swab inserted about ¾” inside each nostril.

    Results of this test are approved for re-entry to the United States.

    Please allow at least 15-20 minutes for your testing appointment.

    It will take about 10 minutes for the testing solution to return a result. Your official Digital Health Certificate will be sent to you as soon as it's generated, usually within 2-3 minutes of your appointment. In rare cases, it may take up to 5 hours for results to be delivered.

    Test kits are sold in packs of 2 so that you’re prepared for events like flight delays over 24 hours that require re-testing, lost or damaged kits, or inconclusive results due to insufficient sample size.

    We recommend packing at least 2 test kits for each traveler for each leg of your return journey.

    We recommend 2 tests for each member of your group.

    For example, a 2-person couple should pack 4 tests in total. For a family of 4 traveling together, bring 8 tests.

    Each RapidReturn Kits contain 2 test for 1 person.

    This helps ensure you can still make it home if your flight is delayed and you need to re-test, if one test is damaged or lost during travel, or if the first test is inconclusive.

    CityHealth ships within the United States only.

    We recommend purchasing your kits at home before you leave, as we cannot guarantee international shipping.

    RapidReturn Kits ship within 72 hours and typically take 3-5 business days to arrive.

    Yes. This test is designed for travelers, and all contents are shelf-stable and approved as cabin luggage.

    You will know your COVID status as soon as your sample is analyzed, which takes about 10 minutes.

    After your test, you’ll receive a secure email and text message with a link to view and download your test results, called a Digital Health Certificate.

    To keep your data secure, this link will expire in 72 hours. You will need to enter your first name, last name, and date of birth to access your results.

    Pre-travel COVID tests must be taken within 3 days (72 hours) of your planned departure.

    Log in to (link) to activate your kit and take your test.

    Note: If your flight is delayed by more than 24 hours, you may have to re-take your test so that your results fall within the 3-day testing window.

    Depending on your airline, you may be able to upload your Digital Health Certificate (your test results) to your airline’s booking app.

    You can also present your Digital Heath Certificate on your mobile device or print a copy to show at the airport.

This letter must be on professional letterhead, signed and dated at least 10 days after your positive test result, and no more than 14 days before your departure.
