Where can I purchase an eMed Test Kit and how do they work? Do kits have an expiration date?


If your U.S. sailing requires you to provide a proctored (professionally supervised) negative test result to board, you may use our eMed Test Kits to satisfy the requirement, as long as you are fully vaccinated and at least 5 years old.

Unvaccinated guests may use a supervised telehealth test kit to satisfy pre-cruise requirements on sailings from the U.S. unless their sailing visits Canada or Bermuda.

Royal Caribbean guests who are eligible to use telehealth test kits to complete their pre-cruise testing requirement can order antigen test kits shipped right to your door anywhere in the U.S. Complete your pre-cruise test at home or anywhere with internet connection, with live video supervised by an eMed Certified Guide.

These telehealth test kits cannot be shipped internationally. However, they are able to be shipped to all U.S. addresses, such as a hotel or other pre-cruise accommodation. International guests can contact the hotel where you will be staying to arrange receipt and storage of your test kit ahead of travel. You can then complete your testing requirement upon arriving in the U.S. and before boarding your cruise. Note that tests kits obtained internationally that have not been authorized for use by the U.S. FDA will not be accepted.

NOTE: These kits do not ship to Puerto Rico.


How Many Tests Should I Purchase?

We strongly recommend purchasing two tests per person just in case you lose or contaminate a part of the test, or have an error during the testing process. However, technically a two or three test pack can be split between members of a traveling party, with one test per person.


By When Should I Order My Kit? 

We recommend ordering your test kit at least one full week before you plan to take your test.

Tests currently ship via an expedited service for $9.99 per shipment or standard shipping for $5.99. Orders over $75 ship free using standard shipping. If you're in a pinch, see below to understand if your order will arrive in time with expedited shipping.

These shipping times apply to continental U.S. addresses only. Shipping to Hawaii and Alaska — or shipping over a U.S. federal holiday — will add one business day to shipping timeline. Shipping times are an estimate and are not guaranteed.


Can I use the test kit over a holiday like Thanksgiving Day? 

Yes, the eMed Guides are available to supervise your test every day of the year, 24 hours a day.  


Do the Kits Have an Expiration Date? 

The test kits we are shipping out at this time have an expiration date no earlier than October 2022.


More About the Test Kit 

The Abbott BinaxNOW™ COVID-19 Ag Card Home Test is an FDA-authorized rapid antigen home test that, when combined with eMed Telehealth Service, can be used by fully vaccinated guests as young as 5 years old to fulfill their pre-cruise test requirement. 

Your test kit includes a personal virtual visit with an eMed Certified Guide who will help you properly administer the test and verify the result. Your eMed Labs result report is provided via email and can be printed or displayed on your mobile device on boarding day.
