I invite people to go back and read the first few pages of this thread.

I still stand by my comments from when all of this started. International travel will not actually recover at all. By the time countries allow it, and with the restrictions that it will have, there simply will not be any airlines left standing.
Oh that’s excellent!! I’m on QR to LHR in March and thought they required a PCR for transit. Fabulous news that they don’t.My plans are firming up for March.
Flying MEL-SIN-IST on SQ. Then travelling on to Spain, possibly Croatia, then UK and Ireland. Then QR DUB-DOH-MEL.
Testing requirements for the entire trip are currently the following;
1) Supervised RAT to satisfy SQ transit
2) PCR or Supervised RAT to enter Australia.
Pick your destinations carefully, be flexible, as long as things don't melt down with COVID any further (and I doubt they will from here) then things are becoming easier. Only the long hauls are booked for now, internal stuff can wait until closer in - again, flexibility.
Wow, I just got a preview of my upcoming trip to IST on the same plane also in economy! The BNE-SIN flight looked pretty empty although he says SIN-CMB was full.Members might be interested in this YouTube video on international out of Australia. I’m not associated with this individual or his channel but I found it interesting.
In the context of the question the actual test can be supervised remotely over video.As per the links above they need to be performed at clinics eg at airports by trained personnel and documents signed by them.
Here's the current Information.
- that the specimen for the test was collected, and the test was carried out by or under the supervision of and, signed by an authorised person (see below).
