How does it work?

Everyone is welcome to visit our Covid-19 test location in Haarlem, 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, also download the app ‘consentry’ on your phone before you come. This app is used to inform you about the test result and to send you the travel certificate. Your test will be linked to this app and your personal details will remain on your device (they will therefore not be 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 (municipal health service). 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 you will be travelling with (your passport or ID card, a driving licence is not sufficient) and a face mask and be on time (not too early and not too late) at the test site in Haarlem.

As soon as you arrive at our test site in Haarlem, 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 rapid test, this method of registration is not necessary.

What do we offer?

At our Covid-19 test location in Haarlem you can choose from the following cheap tests:

– PCR test by taking a nose and throat swab (€85,= including travel certificate and during off peak hours for €79,=)

– Rapid antigen test (€40,= or €55,= including travel certificate / test certificate) and a shallow nose test for €45,= (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 the 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

With a Covid rapid test you will receive the test result by SMS within 15-30 minutes.
