show proof of a recent negative COVID-19 test result to your airline or at the
point of entry at your destination. In most cases this can be either the test result
of a polymerase chain reaction (PCR, or RT-PCR) or a rapid antigen self-test
(RAT). Unlike PCR tests, a rapid antigen test does not require a laboratory to
process your sample and therefore can give you faster results at only a fraction
of the cost.
Bee Pharmacy in Perth/WA offers supervised rapid antigen testing which can give you
certified results within only 15-20 minutes. After you perform a RAT under
supervision of one of your trained pharmacists, we will record the test result
and issue a certificate along with a photograph of the test. A copy of the
certificate will automatically be emailed to you and can be printed in store
