Antigenic and RT-PCR tests are currently covered by the French health insurance. Note: An advance of costs of 46 € will be requested only for antigenic tests.
The test makes it possible to give a rapid result on the presence of the virus during the first days, especially in the contagious phase, which is very useful for air travel.
The so-called RT-PCR virological test can detect traces of virus over a longer period than the antigen test, it remains essential for entry into certain countries (refer to the official list on the French government website).
