PCR Sworn Translation

Do you need a sworn translation of your PCR test in order to travel?

Due to the current health situation, there are many countries which demand that visitors have proof of a negative PCR test taken within 24/48 hours prior to travel. Not only that, but the test must also be valid in both the country of originand destination. For this reason, it may be necessary for your Covid-19 PCR test tobe translated into the language of your destination country. This requirement is as a feguard to allow foreigners to enter certain countries.Therefore, the PCR test acts as a legal and       non-transferable document and must be translated by a sworn translator accredited by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
