Three on-site COVID-19 testing services are available to travelers at SFO:
- Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Care, located in the International Terminal Departures Hall
- XpresCheck, located on the Arrivals Level of Terminal 3
- Worksite Labs, drive-thru testing located adjacent to the Long-Term Parking Lot and Cell Phone Waiting Lot
Appointments are strongly recommended as capacity is limited. If an appointment is not available, all slots at that test site are fully booked. Tests are also available on a walk-in, first-come, first-served basis, but there is no guarantee that you will be tested. Walk-ins must arrive before 4:00 p.m. and it's strongly recommended that passengers get tested the day before their flight, if possible. A valid boarding pass or airline reservation is required to use these services.
Travelers must verify the type of test required for each trip with their airline and destination. Some destinations require tests to be conducted by specific labs.
Please visit the testing providers' websites for complete information and appointment booking.
