How do I get there?
Our corona test location in Amsterdam City Centre is open every working day for the cheapest Covid rapid test or PCR test in town. This location is easy to reach by public transport. From tram stop Nieuwezijds Kolk it is a 5 minute walk. From Central Station it takes about 10 minutes. In the neighbourhood (Jordaan, Grachtengordel) there are several cafés and shops. Because of the central location in the city you can easily continue to your other appointments of the day after your test appointment.
How does it work?
Everyone is welcome to visit our 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.
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.

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.
