Once I have partnered with APHG as my saliva testing provider, how do my staff register?

Firstly, congratulations on joining the saliva testing programme. You should have received an Employer code which your staff can now use to register themselves. Otherwise, please contact your account manager for a bulk registration option.

What happens after my staff registered?

Once your staff have registered, they will receive a confirmation email notifying them when it has been processed and completed (approx. 24 hours).

They will then be able to download and login to the app using their NHI number.

Get your saliva testing kits

A Saliva Test kit includes 1 tube and 1 biohazard bag. The tube has an important barcode you’ll need to use to record your test in the app.

• You can collect a test kit from any of the available pick-up locations listed here throughout New Zealand. You do not have to collect your test kit in Auckland
• This list has new pick-up locations being added regularly – keep checking back for new locations
• Check with your employer if they have test kits available at your workplace
• If collecting test kits from non-workplace locations, we recommend collecting 4 kits at a time to supply you with 2 weeks of saliva testing
• We need to manage distribution and supply of test kits so we ask that you only take max 4 kits from any location outside of your workplace
• View current pick up locations here

You need to have registered your staff before ordering test kits.
