PCR with QR code


I am going to be coming back from Sri Lanka via Dubai and apparently I need a PCR test with a QR code in order to transit Dubai.

Does anybody have any confirmed success with this, somewhere near Colombo/Negombo areas?

Thank you.

I am going to be in the same situation in a few weeks - did you manage to find a test with a QR code in the end?

I want to touch on this to bump it but also I'm hitting DXB on my way to Egypt and I'd heard that the QR was actually a sticker the airlines hand you. I haven't been able to 100% confirm this so if anyone could that'd be awesome.

The PCR test reports that we got from Lanka Hospitals for our return back to Canada have the QR codes in them. We returned to Toronto via Doha and at no point of the journey that anyone scanned these codes. They just looked at the reports.
