Covid RT-PCR and rapid tests in Samothraki

Because of the pandemic and the general uncertainty, the travel conditions to Greece change frequently. If your country puts Greece on its amber or red list, you might be required to take a COVID test before returning home.

In Samothraki, there's a lab where you can get tested for COVID - both RT-PCR and rapid test. It is located in Kamariotissa, on the beachfront, right next to Pireos Bank. The headquarters of the lab is on the mainland, in Alexandroupoli.

How much do RT-PCR and rapid COVID tests cost in Samothraki and Alexandroupoli?

The price of the COVID-19 tests are:

  • rapid test: 20 €
  • RT-PCR test: 50 €

There's a surcharge during the weekend.

How long until the result of the COVID-19 test comes back?

For the rapid test, you will get the result in 20 minutes.

If you take the RT-PCR test in Alexandroupoli, the result comes back the same day.

If you take the RT-PCR test in Samothraki, the result comes back in 24 hours. This is due to the sample having to travel to Alexandroupoli for processing and is dependant on the ferry schedule.

Is it possible to have a rapid test on Sunday? If yes, is that only available with an appointment - I presume that on weekends fast tests are only, possibly, scheduled in the mornings (or afternoon weekend tests are available as well).
