Dominica Discover Authority (DDA) informs the public and visitors to the Nature Island that they can easily book their outbound (departure) Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) and Antigen tests. It is recommended that visitors schedule the required tests for their departure as early as possible after arriving.

PCR tests can be booked online via https://pcrbooking.dominica.gov.dm as well as via WhatsApp (767) 611 3905.

The PCR test site is located at the Windsor Park Stadium and the entrance to access the site is right after the Digicel office on Bath Road, Roseau.
