Raffles Medical Group launches first app-based COVID-19 test booking

Travellers can book their PCR tests ahead of travel plans.

As Singapore opens its borders and prepares for the first-ever air travel bubble flight with Hong Kong, Raffles Medical Group has announced the launch of the first app-based booking, payment and receipt of COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests in Singapore, through its Raffles Connect platform.

The conditions for the bubble flight require at least three COVID-19 tests at various stages in the journey.

The app is currently available for travellers in Singapore. Individuals are able to pre-book their appointments for the COVID-19 PCR test and head to any Raffles Medical clinics for the test

Payment for the tests and receipt of individual test results will all be available on the same platform in-app and results for the COVID-19 PCR tests will be available within 24-36 hours of administration of the test.

Travellers will also receive the physical copy of their test results from the respective clinics as aligned with the guidelines from the relevant authorities.
