Supervised Rapid Antigen Test (RAT)
for Travel

Some states and countries may require a certificate of a supervised rapid antigen test prior to travel as a condition of entry.

At Stanmore Station Pharmacy, we provide supervised rapid antigen tests (RATs) for travel purposes only. 

A service fee for a Supervised RAT for Travel is $50.00 which includes:

  • 1 x TGA approved RAT self-testing

  • Supervision of self-test by a pharmacist

  • Certification of results by witnessing pharmacy

Please read the instructions prior to beginning your self-test. Make sure you don't eat or drink within 30 minutes if you request to do an Oral Fluid Rapid Antigen Test.


You will be issued a certificate of the results for travel purposes after 15 minutes via email.

It is the responsibility of the traveller(s) to prepare the appropriate documentation to meet all the criteria of entry for their destination.  We advise you check with your airline and destination for requirements of entry prior to travel, as these are constantly changing and updated.

This service and certification is for travel purposes only - not for diagnosis. A negative/not detected test results does not exclude infection with SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19). It is your responsibility as the traveller to verify the certification from our pharmacy fulfils your travel requirements, which differ and is rapidly changing amongst various jurisdictions, states, and countries.

Stanmore Station Pharmacy accepts no responsibility if the certificate provided is rejected, or if you are denied entry to you intended destination(s) - no refunds will be issued.
