COVID Test Centre at the airport

Basel-Mulhouse Airport has two different types of Covid tests in a test centre in the terminal. The screening facilities are proposed to passengers (departing and arriving), accompanying persons and all employees of the airport platform.

Out of consideration for your fellow passengers, we ask you not to use the EuroAirport Covid Test Centre if you are experiencing symptoms of a Covid infection. In this case, please contact a test centre in your country of residence.

When should I take a test?
Many countries now require a negative Corona test for entry into the country, it must be presented before you can fly. Please check with your airline or the authorities in the country of destination before travelling, to understand what kind of test you need for entry and the time period in which it must be taken before departure. Attention: Conditions of entry to particular countries are changing rapidly and regularly. The airport does NOT give you legally binding information on the entry criteria for your respective country.

What types of tests are available?
The EuroAirport Test Centre has both rapid tests (antigen tests) and RT-PCR tests:
  • Rapid tests (antigen tests): results within 15 minutes incl. confirmation
  • RT-PCR tests: results available before midnight, including laboratory confirmation when made before 11:15 am on the same day
What do the tests cost?
