How to Do PCR for COVID-19 Test in Nepal?

You have two ways to undergo a PCR Test in Nepal, either you visit the COVID Hospitals or take their home service for COVID-19 Test. Only a few of the covid test centers offer home service. Home service means one of their representatives will come to you to take your sample and provide results online. You will receive your test result within 24 hours of your PCR test taken. If you are in Kathmandu, take a home service PCR Test. By doing so, you won’t have to visit the hospital and wait in a queue. But remember, taking home service cost you a little more.

How to Get Your PCR Report for COVID-19 Test?

The COVID Hospitals will send your test report to your or your agent’s phone number or email. Else, you can also get them online. But, you need a report with the stamp of the hospital on it to show it at the Airport. So, you must visit the hospital to get the report with stamps on it.

I hope the above information helps you get your PCR Test done in Nepal. Else, if you find it hassle to go through the process, call +977-9851273867 to get your things done at your place.
