Ireland’s Dublin Airport will open 2 COVID-19 testing facilities on November 19, 2020. Using these facilities, travelers as those on visitor visas can either walk-in or drive through to get tested at the airport.

Healthcare companies Randox and RocDoc will operate these testing facilities. The PCR and LAMP tests offered by these facilities will charge starting from €99.

The walk-in testing facility will be located near the multi-story car park at Terminal 2. It offers a PCR test at €99. The results of the test will be available within 24 to 48 hours.

The drive-through testing facility is provided by RocDoc. The location of this facility is planned to be located in the Express Green car park. This is also known as Old Airport Road.

The passengers will need to book for the tests in advance through Randox or RocDoc. The daily test capacity is 12,000 tests. Plans are there to increase this to 15,000 in the near future.

As passengers to many countries need to present a negative COVID-19 test result to get entry, the COVID-19 test facilities at airports are in great demand. In October, there was a 91% decrease in the number of travelers in Ireland in comparison with the number in the same period in September 2020.
