Rapid Covid-19 tests are now available at Gibraltar airport for all travellers who want one, whether arriving or departing. The result is available within one hour and has been commissioned by the government and health authority to assist travellers who want a quick way of assessing their risk to relatives or fellow passengers.

There is a charge of £50 for the test, and the results are sent to the customer by SMS. An electronic certificate is also provided.

It is important to note this is a antigen (lateral flow) test and is therefore not as accurate as the PCR tests. If a local resident tests positive, they are encouraged to book a more accurate PCR test to confirm the result.
