Why the HIV Test and STD Screening is important
If you are sexually active, worried about HIV or other STDs and want peace of mind, we strongly recommend you get a Full STD Screen or an HIV test. These STD screens include tests for many sexually transmitted diseases. Results are available quickly. In most cases, a Full STD Screen is sufficient. If you have visible lesions or warts on your genitals, mouth or anus, you should consider tests for Herpes, Syphilis and Genital Warts. All our locations around South Africa offer HIV testing and STI Screens.
There are two kinds of HIV tests, depending on when you may have been exposed. There is a 28-day HIV test (for exposure at least 28 days before your HIV test), and a 10-day HIV test (for exposure 10 days before your HIV test - this test is only available as part of the Early Detection Screen). If you want an HIV test, please refer to the table above for more information.
If you need an HIV test certificate for a business visa or tourist visa, our centres can provide you with one. For example, some Russian visas require you receive an HIV test certificate before being allowed entry into the country. In most cases, we can provide you with an HIV test certificate same-day and nearby.
