With the ongoing pandemic, travelling abroad is still a high risk and many countries require travelers to take a Covid-19 pre-departure test (PDT) and only most of the time, only Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests are valid. The test result must be negative before you are allowed to cross borders and the timeframe the test needs to be taken differs to various countries around the world. That being said, if you're planning to take a PDT to travel abroad, here's a list of MOH approved clinics to conduct PCR pre-departure tests in Singapore under $145!
