What is the price of a Covid test in Barcelona?

The price of a Covid test in Barcelona is about 100 euros if it is performed in a private laboratory or private clinic.

The public health services in Barcelona do not provide or reimburse Covid 19 test for travel, whether it is for business, leisure or force majeure.

 

Can I be reimbursed for a PCR test done abroad?

Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic in Europe, some countries have decided to reimburse part or all of the cost of a PCR test done abroad.

In France for example, Social Security reimburses up to 60 Euros according to certain modalities.

We, therefore, advise you to contact your health insurance or your mutual insurance company once you are back in your country.

    Hello Felicia,
    You right, in France it's free to do a covid testing. As we explain in this page, in Barcelona this test is only free if you have symptoms of the disease. There is a charge for travelers who need the Covid -19 test to return to their country.
    A cost saving measure I guess.
    Best,
