Tourist Information Guide

Look up your COVID-19 test requirements for your cruise leaving from Barcelona or Tarragona and book your pre-boarding COVID test to avoid the queues

Page Content

Latest update: 07 October 2022

We recommend you book your pre-boarding COVID test in advance for a cruise leaving Barcelona or Tarragona to ensure you avoid queues. The express COVID testing centre we recommend can issue your FIT-TO-CRUISE certificate in just 15 minutes after your antigen test because they work by appointment only. If you want a PCR test instead of an antigen test, the results delivery time varies depending on how quickly you want your test result. The options are given on the test reservation form.

Unlike most other COVID testing centres, the testing centre we recommend only works by appointment to ensure you are tested quickly and at your preferred time. Testing centres that don't work by appointment can have long queues and typically are unable to issue your certificate quickly.

To make your reservation for your pre-boarding COVID test with the express COVID testing centre, we recommend clicking on the link below that corresponds with the name of your cruise ship. After clicking on your cruise ship name, you can make your COVID test reservation for your specific ship. We recommend you make your reservation as soon as possible because once a time slot is full, the testing centre will not accept further bookings for that time slot. Restricting time slots is necessary to ensure the testing centre can provide you with a rapid testing service without queues.
