You will get your test result by text message.
You cannot use a HSE COVID-19 (coronavirus) test result for international travel from Ireland. If you need a letter for travel, you need to have a negative PCR test from a private company. They will give you the letter you need to travel.
When you'll get your result
Most people will get their result within 2 days, but it can take longer.
If you have not received your result
Test results are given 7 days a week up until 9pm.
If you are waiting more than 48 hours for your result, you can complete the COVID-19 delayed PCR test result form.
Do not contact your GP for a test result.
