Can I use my COVID-19 Test Home Collection Kit DTC results for travel purposes?
The Everlywell COVID-19 Test Home Collection Kit DTC has received an EUA from the FDA and is used with EUA authorized certified rt-PCR tests, which is the preferred COVID-19 testing method for many travel requirements. Many destinations require negative results within a very narrow timeframe. Included in your digital results will be a printable version that you can share. We recommend that you reach out to your destination’s government for their specific requirements and timelines before making your purchase.

While we are not able to provide an exact estimate of when you will receive your results, keep in mind the typical turnaround time for results. As a reminder:
- Order Delivery: we estimate that you will receive your order within 2-8 business days of placing your order. (You also have the option of purchasing expedited shipping to your home for an additional fee.)
- Returning Sample to Lab: once you ship your sample at a UPS dropbox Monday-Friday, our partner lab should receive within 1-2 business days.
- Results: results are typically available within 24-48 hours after the lab begins processing the sample.
If you are concerned that your schedule is too tight to allow for unforeseen delays, we recommend that you check your state health department's website for other COVID-19 testing options.
