ITM offers a COVID-19 test in the following cases.


  • You are about to leave Belgium and have to submit a negative COVID-19 result upon arrival in the country of destination. This test will be performed during a pretravel consultation, during which other health risks and, if necessary, vaccinations are also discussed. On our travel medicine website you will find the requirements per country. Even if the airline requires a negative test, this can be done with us.


  • A COVID-19 test after your return from abroad is possible from day seven after your return, if you have received a text message with the instruction to have yourself tested after completing the Passenger Locator Form.


  • If you think you have COVID-19 symptoms you should contact your doctor.

For a COVID-19 pre-departure screening (pre-travel) the total fee includes the doctor's consultation and the COVID-19 test. The COVID-19 test has a fixed rate of 46.81 euros.

For a COVID-19 test after a trip (post-travel), when you return from a red or orange zone, you will have to pay for the consultation. The test is reimbursed by the NIHDI.

If we establish during the consultation that you are not eligible for a COVID-19 test, you'll only pay for the consultation.

In 99% of cases, the COVID-19 result is available within 36 hours. If the test is taken on Friday, the result is available on Monday. The result of the test will be available in your online medical file at You can consult, print or photograph the result yourself. You can access with your eID or itsme. If the screening takes place on Friday, the result will be available on on Monday at the earliest.
