COVID-19 Self-Testing Kit via eMed
COVID-19 has changed the way we travel. Now, most countries require proof of vaccination, a negative PCR test, or a negative antigen (rapid) test. Luckily, the antigen (rapid) test can be done in the privacy of your own home. This allows you to test prior to traveling and know you will have a result in time for your flight. At iVisa, we strive to make traveling as easy as possible for our customers so we have teamed up with eMed to help you purchase your COVID-19 self-testing kit. Currently, this kit is only available to those living in the United States.
The test, eMed is offering is the Abbott's BinaxNOW COVID-19 Ag test. It is a rapid, reliable, highly portable, and affordable tool for detecting active COVID-19 infections. Some of the advantages of having your kit mailed to you from a reliable company means you don’t need to worry about scheduling a visit to the doctor or a clinic to get tested in the busy days before you travel. It also prevents you from possibly being exposed to the virus while waiting at the doctor’s office. Plus, the kit contains 6 FDA authorized home tests so you can test before you leave home and then pack the rest of the kit in your bag to take with you on vacation. Then, when you need to test before returning home from your vacation, you already have the kit with you. No more waiting in line. No more having to locate a testing center in an unfamiliar country.
You can take the test in the privacy of your own home or hotel room 3 days before traveling. Once the test is complete, you can show your negative test results at the airport when preparing to board your flight.

What countries accept a self-test for United States travelers?
International air passengers traveling to the United States can use a self-test (sometimes referred to as a home test).
Enter your departure and destination country on the Visa Checker tool. Travelers who are considering bringing a U.S.-authorized test with them for use outside of the United States should contact authorities at their destination for information before they travel.
What happens after I get my test results?
If your test is positive, tell a healthcare provider about your positive test result and stay in contact with them during your illness as you self-isolate.
If your self-test result is negative, start packing for your trip! Don’t forget to take your negative test results with you to the airport.
Can I use the self-test before returning to the United States?
Yes, you can. On January 12, 2021, the CDC announced an order requiring all air passengers arriving to the United States from a foreign country to get tested no more than 3 days before their flight departs. You must present the negative result or documentation of having recovered from COVID-19 to the airline before boarding the flight.
Who can use this test?
The test is authorized for use by anyone aged 4+. Children aged 14 or younger must be accompanied by an adult during specimen collection. You must be at least 18 years of age to purchase the kit.
