Hi, can somebody tell me if the PCR or antigen test has to be in english? I am from Slovakia and planing to go to Guate in May and I can get antigen test but just in my slovak language. It is stated posistiv or negativ in my language and you can get which one is which as it is not so different in my language.

Hello there. I don't think they'll give you a hard time because the way I see it anyone can understand what it says. I've seen recent videos on Youtube uploaded by arrivals at the airport in GT going through the screening procedures. Good luck.

I live in Florida, USA. I was in Guatemala back in Jan & Feb this year. I had a PCR test done before I arrived and was OK. But if I recall, they much prefer the more reliable PCR test as opposed to an antigen test. If they do not accept your test results, you'll probably have to be tested there. While I was in Guate the USA CDC mandated everyone coming back to USA be tested. so I was tested at the airport; it took no more than 5 minutes and cost $25USD, or Q200.
