  • United States, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Panama

    Passengers for whom there is a possibility of pre-departure test, will be required to present a negative RT-PCR SARS CoV2 test result less than 72 hours old at the time of boarding.
  • Kuwait, Qatar, Israel, Brazil, Peru, Serbia, Algeria, Turkey, Madagascar, India, Oman, South Africa and Turkey, Lebanon, Montenegro

The results of the samples are communicated directly to each patient in a confidential manner. Aéroport de Lyon is not the recipient of these results.
