Tests can be done at a private laboratory, for USD 120 a test. For this, an appointment must be made 3 to 4 days before the desired testing date. Results will be reverted within 12 to 24 hours.

Since tests are only performed at hospitals, they are for free and no appointment is needed, although long lanes can be expected. Results will be reverted within 3 to 4 days.
