The airline website says "Results must be issued no more than 72 hours before your departure."

Does this mean I can take the test on Sunday, have the results issued on Tuesday and fly on Friday??

Friday would be the fifth day after the test but within three days of the results.

I really don't want to blow this. Thanks for your knowledgeable input.

I just got back from SA and I was told the "test" needs to be perform 72 hours before departure. Must be a PCR and get a printable form of results, mine was a PDF file. Many testing sites give results in 24 hours. Got tested Wednesday at 3PM, results Thursday morning, boarded first flight Friday morning.

One other thing to consider also is the requirement of the final destination country. For example for my trip to Zimbabwe Emirates Airline requires results 72 hours before departure. However, Zimbabwe requires 48 hours before arrival. With an elapsed travel time of 40 hours it is a challenge to make it work.

I'd suggest that you look to the relevant government agencies of the jurisdiction to which you intend to travel, or through and certainly from. Do not trust the grammatically challenged issuance from the Airline. (Good kick at the can though)

Are you using a travel agent?

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian
