Who can apply for a test?

All those who meet all of the following conditions can make an appointment for a test at the testing village:

1.a. You received a text message containing a CTPC code (Covid Test Prescription Code) which you can use to book an appointment for a test:

  • After government contact tracing (on day 7 from the day after high-risk contact)
  • After return from a red zone (on day 1 and day 7 from the day of return to Belgium)
  • If your GP / CLB (pupil guidance) physician / occupational physician has prescribed a test.

1.b. Several countries require foreigners to present a certificate of a recent negative test, or to go into mandatory quarantine upon arrival. You can find these requirements on diplomatie.belgium.be. Those who go abroad for professional reasons or on holiday, can now be tested at the testing village. For this purpose, you can purchase a test for €46.81 per person. The test is not reimbursed by the National Institute for Health and Disability Insurance. It is up to travellers to adequately inform themselves about the travel advice for the country of destination and the period of validity of their test.

Please note: the number of tests for travellers per day is limited. The registration form states the number of tests that are still available for the following days. Please keep this in mind before buying a test. A purchased test cannot be refunded. It is not possible to change your appointment.

  1. You have no or only mild Covid-19 symptoms.
  2. You live in Antwerp or one of the municipalities that shares a GP services centre with Antwerp. This applies to the postcodes listed below.

Please note: Currently, you can only apply for an AG-Covid rapid tests at the testing village provided you have a code supplied by a group physician (for instance, an occupational physician working for priority services or clusters from businesses where continuity of production is essential – school physicians…). If the testing strategy is amended, Testing village Antwerp will make adjustments and communicate about them.

FAQ

Nee. Dat kan alleen als je:

  • de procedure via deze website volgde (zie ‘Wat moet je doen?‘)
  • een afspraak kreeg

Belangrijk!
Je krijgt geen test zonder afspraak en bijhorende e-ticket met QR-code. Dan sturen we je terug.

Neen.  Je hebt enkel je e-ticket met QR-code nodig en je identiteitsbewijs om je in het testdorp te laten testen. Neem beide mee, anders kan je niet getest worden.

Bij de registratie moet u niet betalen. Of je test terugbetaald wordt of niet, hangt af van beslissingen van de overheid.

Binnen de 48 uur na afname van de test.

  • Je arts. Hij beheert je globaal medisch dossier (GMD).
    Hij informeert je over het testresultaat en welke acties je moet nemen.
  • De overheid.
  • Jijzelf. Je kan je resultaat zelf zien op www.mijngezondheid.be.
  • Test je positief? Je bent besmet. Bel dan onmiddellijk je huisarts.

Als je 1 of meerdere symptomen van Covid-19 hebt. Ga dan naar je huisarts en volg de veiligheidsrichtlijnen. Na dat advies kan je je niet meer laten testen in ons testdorp.
