Getting Covid antigen tests at Johannesburg airport,,
Anyone have recommendations at the Johannesburg airport where to get on the level reliable antigen Covid testing before flying back to the United States. Turnaround time has to be quick because I only have about three hours at the airport before my return flight to the US

I would not recommend getting the test done at JNB if all you have is three hours. But, there are two testing kiosks at the airport on the second floor that open at 8:00am - 8:30am depending. Their turnaround was about two hours. But you will not be allowed through passport/Customs until the test is complete and that can leave you little time.

If you are traveling through JNB from another country, then you must also go through passport/Customs and that can take 20 - 40 minutes depending. Then you take your test and then go back through passport/Customs and that can take another 15 - 20 minutes.

So two options:

1. Get it before your arrive JNB
2. Learn how to edit a PDF file

And for what it's worth - US Customs does not check your PCR status when you arrive - it is only checked on the foreign side.

My brother had a antigen test in the joberg airport in early April to return to the US. It was about $15 and took 10 minutes. There were three testing kiosks. There was no line when he went so that helped. It was almost a non issue for him.

Yep, it is only to get through JNB Customs/Passport security and yes it is a waste of time and money.

I went round and round with a SA Airlink ticket monger to get on a flight to Bulawayo as they wanted a 48 hour or less PCR test - which is impossible to do if you're flying in from the States. So a quick PDF edit and problem solved.

Asshats...

The CPB doesn’t ever check test results. It’s only purpose is to allow you to clear local customs returning and to board the plane. Essentially now it’s a fleece the tourist revenue raiser.

The only thing that stalks you is your outright stupidity in spite of your claim to be some sort of Dr. Come on, enlighten us again how all of the people who refused this jab fraud are a bunch of idiots. One more time, you can do it.

I know it’s difficult for you (probably impossible) but stay on topic. Covid testing at JNB is a formality designed to fleece tourist but you have to play the game. BTW, when was the last time you cleared Customs at JNB? I did it 8 months ago.

Sorry for the delayed response. Just saw this post. I leave in 4 days for the Caprivi via Doha, Joberg, and Kasane, then drive into Namibia. I and my wife( who has a PhD in nursing education) are vaccinated. As a retired physician, I consider anyone that is refusing the vaccine as stupid. It’s free insurance against a potentially fatal disease. Granted, the mortality rate is low, but the hospitalization rate isn’t for unvaccinated people. 85-90 % of people in hospitals due to COVID are unvaccinated. Enough said.

From the FWIW department - I know quite a few doctors who initially extolled the benefits of the mRNA shot that now admit the benefits were massively overstated and the detriments of the treatment were hidden. A lot of that has to do with the CDC not telling the truth and hiding the facts based on political pressure. Many people thought they could trust the CDC. Unfortunately, that didn't pan out so well.

Not sure where JDollar stands on the matter today, but I would surmise that maybe his views have also changed?

Maybe, but I doubt it. He likes to roll in the mud with his Accurate Reloading site libtard pro vax and America hating buddies. Makes him feel less like the complete assshat that he is.
