The PCR test (sometimes called Molecular test, or RT-PCR Test or SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR Test) shows if the virus is currently present in your body. This is the type of test required by most travel companies and airlines before you travel. Please check with your airline about how long before your travel you must have done the test.
