COVID-19 Testing at the Airport

COVID-19 TESTING AT SKOPJE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT 


In order to respond to the requests for COVID-19 tests as a precondition for travel by an airplane and entrance in EU/Schengen countries, TAV Macedonia, as an airport operator with the clients and customers being its top priority, once again reacted and responded promptly and came up with a solution for rapid antigen tests performed at Skopje International Airport shortly before the passenger gets onboard. 
In front of the terminal building of Skopje International Airport, near the entrance "Departures C", there are testing facilities of authorized laboratories where passengers can perform the required COVID-19 test and obtain the result within 20 to 30 minutes of sampling.


For detailed information about the tests accepted by the countries of EU / Schengen, please contact your airline and the Embassy of the country of your arrival.  
If you decide to perform a rapid antigen test at Skopje International Airport, please arrive at the airport at least 4 hours prior the departure time of your flight.
Given that the EU/Schengen countries are constantly changing their travel rules related to COVID-19 and each country independently makes changes in terms of restrictions for the citizens of the Republic of North Macedonia, we appeal travelers to check the latest requirements with their
airline and the Embassy of the country they plan to arrive.
