There are various options in Estonia for getting yourself tested for a fee:
– detection of the presence of coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 with a PCR method (nasopharyngeal swab or pharyngeal washings);
– detection of the presence of SARS-CoV-2 with a rapid PRC method (only nasopharyngeal swab);
– detection of the presence of coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, influenza A/B and RS virus with a PCR method (a panel consisting of three tests; nasopharyngeal swab or pharyngeal washings)
– detection of the level of antibodies (from venous blood);
– antigen test (from pharmacies, during events and as part of special campaigns, from the nasopharynx or saliva).

Paid PCR resting for coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 is intended for people who are not indicated for referral testing but who still want to know if they have been infected with COVID-19.

For example, paid testing is aimed at:

  • travellers who need to report a negative test result when crossing the border;
  • employees, if required by their employer;
  • employees who want to test many employees at once or test their travelling employees. More information is available HERE:
  • users of private medical services, of required;
  • foreign nationals who are not subject to testing with a referral letter in Estonia;
  • all other interested people who do not have a referral letter or do not want to get tested on the basis of the referral letter;
  • people interested in the detection of antibodies to find out if they have been infected with coronavirus during the last 6 months or if antibodies have formed in their blood after vaccination.

For coronavirus testing (including paid testing) advance booking is required, which can be done through the respective service provider. It is necessary to take your identification document with you. The mask must be removed by the moment of identification.
