Coronavirus Test Options

The results of all examinations are provided as a medical certificate by e-mail or as a download.
The services can be used only after prior online registration.

Various diagnostic procedures are offered in the Medical Center as part of medical examinations:

  • PCR standard test  
    The result is usually available in less than 24 hours (usually late evening / night) from the day of testing.

Supplementary documents (e.g. for entry, visa procedures, etc.) will only be provided if the test was performed by Medical Center staff in line with the quality guidelines.  We do not provide documentation of self-testing swabs.

The Medical Center is also available to provide advice for anyone with a positive result and to discuss the next steps together.  

The samples taken at the Medical Center  are processed solely for the intended purpose, namely detecting SARS-CoV-2.  Any other examinations are strictly subject to consent.

The following antibody tests from venous blood draws are performed at the Medical Center: IgA, IgM, IgG:

  • Antibody point-of-care diagnostics
    The final result is usually available after 6 hours (for IgM and IgG).

Blood is taken for the antibody test.  Fasting in advance is not necessary for this.

In addition to sampling, a medical consultation and an exploratory examination are essential components of the appointment. The samples taken at the Medical Center  are processed solely for the intended purpose, namely detecting SARS-CoV-2 antibodies. Any other examinations are strictly subject to consent.

Information on Appointments and Cancellations

Where appropriate, your airline will inform you about testing options in the transit zone that have been coordinated between the authorities and the relevant airlines.

A Medical Clearing Service is still available for transfer passengers in Frankfurt Airport’s transit area. Should passengers find that they need to take tests within the transit area, they can get (re)tested here in the event that their test certificates expire during their journeys. This might happen due to unforeseen developments, such as flight cancellations or last-minute changes to entry requirements.

Passengers are advised to expect waiting times (for testing and results). To reach the Medical Clearing Service in the transit area, follow the signs to Gates B20 and B22 in Terminal 1. Staff will be available on site to assist you with the testing procedure. We are available between 8 and 10 am, and 2 and 3 pm. Please note, an online appointment booking is essential.
