My Family Clinic works with authorised laboratory partners appointed by the Ministry of Health (MOH) for Pre-Departure COVID-19 PCR Swab Tests. There is a possibility that delays will occur in the transport and processing of specimen as well as in conveyance of results.

If the results cannot be furnished within 4 hours of your departure due to exingencies of service on the part of My Family Clinic and/or our laboratory partners, you will be refunded the full cost of the test.

My Family Clinic and/or the partner laboratories shall not be held responsible or liable in any way for any claims, damages, losses, expenses, costs or liabilities whatsoever (including, without limitation, any direct or indirect damages for costs, loss of income, revenue or profits, business interruption) resulting or arising directly or indirectly from your use of our test services.
