How do I get there?
You can visit our second Covid test location in the centre of Amsterdam near Rokin every working day for a Covid rapid test or PCR test at an attractive rate. This location is easy to reach by public transport. It is a minute walk from the Rokin tram and metro stop. From Central Station this stop is within 4 minutes reach by public transport. The Central Station is at 12 minutes walking distance, Dam square at 3 minutes walking distance. There are also several nearby parking garages, including Parkeergarage Rokin and Q-Park de Bijenkorf. In the neighbourhood (Canal District, Rokin, Kalverstraat, Damrak, Spui, Dam square, the Red Light District) are many cafés, restaurants and shops. Because of the central location in the city, after your test appointment you can easily continue to your other appointments of the day.
How does it work?
Everyone is welcome to visit our second Covid test location in the centre of Amsterdam, but please make an appointment first via the website. Pay easily and safely in advance via iDeal or credit card, for the lowest price in the Netherlands. You will then receive an appointment confirmation via email. For a PCR test, download the app ‘consentry’ on your phone. This is used to inform you of the test result and to send you the travel certificate. Your test will be linked to this app and your personal data will remain on your device (i.e. not stored on a server of Bright Labs/Healthmark or consentry). There is one exception: if your test is positive, our laboratory (Bright Labs/Healthmark) is obliged to report this to the GGD. You will have given us your active consent to do so. This also applies to a positive rapid test. The certificate of a negative rapid test will be sent by email.
Take the ID card you will be travelling with (your passport or ID card, a driving licence is not sufficient) and a mouth mask and be on time (not too early and not too late) at the test location in Amsterdam Centre at Nes (not to be confused with our other location in Amsterdam Centre at Herenstraat).
When you arrive at our test site in Amsterdam Centre, you register at the registration desk: you show your ID and for the PCR test you scan the QR code that our tester gives you. You fill in all the details and register. You show our tester your registration and then you will be tested. For a quick test, this method of registration is not necessary.
What do we offer?
At our corona test location in Amsterdam Centre you can choose from the following cheap tests:
– PCR test involving the collection of a nasal and throat swab (€85,= including travel certificate and during off peak hours €79,= including certificate)
– PCR test URGENT with a nose and throat swab (€129, = including travel certificate) and the result comes on the same day in the evening if you have been tested before 11 am.
– Antigen Rapid test (€40,- or €55,= including travel certificate / test certificate) and a shallow nose test for €45,- and including travel declaration €60,-.
The test is always administered by medically trained personnel. Both our rapid test and our PCR test have been validated by RIVM. Partly thanks to our cooperation with MBO Amersfoort and ROC Utrecht, Coronasnelcheck is the cheapest provider of PCR and rapid tests in the Netherlands. The locations and the staff are all checked for correct medical practice (in accordance with RIVM guidelines) by an inspector from the municipal health service (GGD).
Result and travel certificate
After a PCR test, you will receive the test result no later than the following evening. You can view the test result via the app consentry. With a corona rapid test you will receive the test result by SMS within 15-30 minutes. Make sure you check whether you received an SMS, sometimes the push notification that an SMS has arrived is not on.
Many countries now have entry restrictions as part of the Covid-19 measures. A negative PCR test with medical certificate is usually required to enter the country and avoid mandatory quarantine. Sometimes, proof of a negative rapid test is sufficient or even required additionally.
With a travel certificate you can travel to Belgium, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, among other places. We also offer the option of this test certificate, which is included with the PCR test and can be ordered inexpensively and easily in addition to a rapid test. The travel certificate of the PCR test can be retrieved via the app in English with the result in 8 different languages (NL/EN/FR/DE/IT/ES/PL/RU). The travel certificate or test certificate of a quick test will be mailed to you. Please always follow the advice of the national government. For the latest developments on travel restrictions, please visit their website.
This test location in the centre of Amsterdam is at Nes. This street runs parallel to Rokin, just like Kalverstraat on the other side, and ends at Dam square. Normally the now temporarily closed Restaurant Mappa is located at the address of this test location. The building has been changed into a professional test location, but can still be recognised by the name ‘Mappa’ on the front. Nes is located in one of the oldest and most centrally located parts of Amsterdam, with most of the city’s attractions within walking distance, including the Palace on Dam Square, Kalverstraat (the largest shopping street), the canals, the Red Light District (including Nieuwmarkt), Waterlooplein, Muntplein and Rembrandtplein.
The very central location of our test site on Nes street means that it is easily accessible from all parts of Amsterdam by tram, bus and metro. The location is within walking distance from most places in the city centre. Coming by car is not a problem either, as there are several parking garages nearby (including Parkgarage Rokin and Q-Park Bijenkorf). Central Station is less than a 15-minute walk away, and public transport gets you there even faster. The nearby Rokin stop (3 minutes walk) is home to the recently built North-South line (metro 52) and trams 4 and 14, among others. These excellent connections mean that this test location is also easily accessible for visitors from outside Amsterdam, such as The Hague, Leiden, Purmerend, Zaanstad or Alkmaar. Cyclists can easily park their bikes in the many bicycle parking spots on the Rokin.
