As you know I opted to get the test done on a Saturday and that left me with the big hospitals in Seoul. All in can say is that, yes you can get it done on a Saturday and I recommend you going to the International Health Clinic at Yonsei Severance Hospital near Sinchon and Ehwha.
- Bring your passport.
- Bring two photo id pics (just in case...I didn't hand them in)
- Don't eat for the blood test. (On the phone they said I didn't have to, but I just didn't eat anyways.) (There is a great food court on the same floor as the International Clinic, that has a Kraze burger of all things....so you can grab some grub afterwards)
- If you are a woman don't show up if you are on your period, as it can alter the results of the pee test.
- Expect to pay 140,000 Won, which is not cheap!
- Show up at 9:30am to be the first in line. Otherwise you will have to sit around and wait your turn. I believe the office will run till 12pm on Saturdays.
- Obviously come in a healthy state.
- Another point is to just not tell them you have a certain medical condition or that you are on certain medicine. You want to pass the test and not complicate things. I actually goofed up on this since Yonsei is the hospital I visit for my GI disease, but they said it was okay.
- I think a lot of people are kind of worried about how they will do the Cannabis test. Apparently it was just as simple as peeing. But you have to divide your pee in to two containers.
- First they check your vitals, weight and eyesight. Then you sit in with a doctor and she asks about your medical condition.
- Then the doc has you change into a hospital gown, where you then get a chest examination along with testing your bowels area.
- Afterwards, you go do your blood test, peeing and chest xray.
- Tada ... all done. They didn't check my teeth this time...thank God!
- The results should be finished in about 4 - 5 days and they will give you a slip of paper for when you should return to pick it up. (Which you can do on a Saturday as well.)
What a day!
