    You can’t use this negative self-administered lateral flow antigen test result for inbound and outbound travel first of all. I hope folks understand that.

      Hi first of all Congrats to a Black Bermudian from Pond Hill Backatown for doing his part. Also the irony is that this system accepted in most countries besides Bermuda even though it was created in Bermuda.
      I checked his site and this is stated for the travel option :

      TestGuard-Skyflow is perfect for anyone traveling to a country that accepts negative self-administered lateral flow antigen test results for inbound and outbound flights or travel. Only a select number of countries are accepting lateral flow antigen tests for pre-departure clearance.

      For example, antigen tests are not suitable for traveling to France.

      This option is currently not available for inbound and outbound travelers for : Bermuda , France , USA

      Your tone in first of all saddens me
