Order a PCR home test for Covid-19

We offer a home test for adults and children aged 6 or over with Covid-19 symptoms. We do this on behalf of Region Västra Götaland.

The test is free of charge

  • You need to be 16 years or over, have a Swedish personal identity number and a BankID to order a test in the Kry app, on kry.se or via telephone.
  • As a legal guardian you can order a test for your child.
  • You collect the sample from the nose, throat and saliva using a swab.
  • You will receive the test result within 48 hours after taking the test. We’ll send a push notification or a text message when the result come back. You can see the results by logging in either in the app or at app.kry.se.
  • The test can be ordered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • You can not cancel your test. If you already ordered a test from us, or any other care provider, you should not order another.

Who can get tested?

Adults and children aged 6 or over can get tested with a home test through Kry. You need to be 16 years or older to order a test.

We can send tests to any address in Västra Götaland. This means that anyone who lives or stays at an address in, for example, Gothenburg, Borås, Alingsås and elsewhere in Västra Götaland can get tested for the coronavirus.

You can get tested in any of the following apply to you:

  • You have symptoms consistent with Covid-19.
  • You are part of a contact tracing chain.
  • You have been abroad within the past 7 days.

Based on the recommendation of the Public Health Agency of Sweden, you should not get tested again if you have tested positive for Covid-19 any time within the past 6 months.

The test results are recorded in the medical record of the person who orders the test. As a legal guardian you can order a test for your child, but for this reason, you should not order a test for anyone else but your children.

How much does it cost?

Patient fee: SEK 0.

How it works

  1. You order a test using the app, kry.se or by phone.
  2. The courier company Gordon Delivery contacts you by phone when it is time for delivery. Remember to avoid physical contact with the driver who drops of and picks up the test.
  3. Take the test in peace and quiet. You’ll take the test by swabbing the nose, throat and saliva. Store the test in the refrigerator until it is time for pick-up.
  4. The driver will pick up the test approximately 1 to 3 hours after it is dropped off. The driver will send a text message when they are close to your home. After receiving this, place the test outside your door.
  5. You will receive the test results within 48 hours after the test has been picked up. We’ll send a push notification or a text message when the results are back. You can see the results by logging in either in the app or at app.kry.se.

If the test result shows that you or your child have Covid-19, we will call you within 48 hours and talk about contact tracing. We will call you from a private number Monday to Sunday between 08:00 and 19:00. We call during weekends as well.

Keep in mind

You have to perform contact tracing if you have Covid-19 If your test results show you have Covid-19, you must perform contact tracing. This means that you tell everyone you may have infected that they might have Covid-19. You also have to perform contact tracing if your child has Covid-19.

This is how you do contact tracing
