Here you can find out quick information about how and where to get a Covid-19 PCR test in Cappadocia, Goreme, Urgup, Avanos, Uchisar, Nevsehir and around, with hospitals and clinics info, results delivery time, pricing, and advice.

Where to get Covid-19 PCR Test in Cappadocia?

You can have your Covid-19 PCR, antigen or antibody, swab tests in Cappadocia, along the borders of the Nevsehir city, at the few public hospitals, private medical centers, clinics, and laboratories. They can offer same day results with good service.

PCR Test at Public Hospitals in Cappadocia region

There is only one public hospital in the Cappadocia region, the Nevsehir State Hospital (Tel: 0384 228 50 50, Address: 15 Temmuz Mahallesi 148. Sokak No:1 Merkez, Nevsehir). It is located about 12,5 km. from Goreme. Looks like far away.

To have a free PCR test there, you must be symptomatic or had a direct contact with the person having Coronavirus.

If you don’t meet this criteria, than you will need to pay for your test. We won’t recommend this option as the state hospital is far away from Cappadocia tourist zones, you might wait in the possible long queues with locals, and might have language problem.

Pricing is around 250 TL (about €25), and you will need to pay in cash. And your test result will be Turkish print copy (no English report) and will get the results within 24 hours. Seems like not very ideal for tourists.

PCR Test at Private Hospitals or Clinics in Cappadocia region

You can get your Covid-19 PCR test at the several private hospitals in the Cappadocia region. There are two private hospitals situated within 10 km. from Goreme.

You need to make appointment before you go to the private hospitals to get your PCR test done. You will get your result in English and within 4-6 hours.

Pricing is around 250 TL (around €25), like in in whole Turkey. Also note that some private hospitals may charge more like twice. Make sure you ask the price before you go.

And some private hospitals offer PCR test at your hotel or home address with additional service fee, which is a great option for tourists. You will save yourself from the hassle of getting to the hospital, wait at the possible queues, language problem etc.

Anyways, getting your PCR test done at the private hospitals seems to be the best option.
