Saw this on Facebook - Rapidtesttravel.com
This website is supposed to give you places & time results when you enter the State you reside in.

Beware, only PCR nasal tests are the ones Aruba will accept!

Ingrid, maybe you can help out here. I found the list of accepted tests on the aruba.com website
https://www.aruba.com/us/traveler-healt ... id-testing

I've seen posts on FB that some nj sites no longer have the rapid pcr test, of course this can change over time. someone posted that they took the Abbott ID NOW test, got the results in 15 minutes and it was accepted.

It could be that all the accepted tests are nasal PCR tests. I guess instead of asking specifically for a rapid PCR test we should be asking for any of the accepted tests?

Janet and Rick, the person that got the 15 minute results got them from Riverside Medical in Medford which is close to Philly

We are going to https://www.medicalartcenternj.com/ on Wednesday they say we will get our results in 24 hours. Its probably an hour and a half from Philly, I'll do a post when we get our results and let you know how long it takes to get them back.

Linda, to be sure, I would ask specifically for the mentioned tests in the list. If it is one of them, you will be fine. I see they even mention the brands.
