How do I get a ‘fit to fly certificate’ or ‘COVID-19 clearance letter’ if I am travelling and have recently recovered from COVID-19?

Some countries may be requesting documented evidence of previous COVID-19 infection as an alternative to a negative COVID-19 test as an entry requirement. If this is requested, you must ensure what type of documentation and evidence is acceptable to the country you are entering and also airline you are travelling with.

  • Be aware that certificates proving you have been recently infected with COVID-19 (sometimes known as COVID-19 recovery certificates or fitness to fly certificates) are not available via your NHS GP or via the NHS.
  • Some private companies offer to issue COVID-19 recovery certificates for a fee, if you can provide evidence of a recent positive COVID-19 test – you must liaise with the private company directly to find out more about this option, and ensure their certificate is accepted by your airline and also the country you are travelling to.

In addition, if you live in:

  • England or Wales: the NHS COVID pass app now shows details of your COVID-19 test results in addition to your vaccination records within the QR code. You’ll need to check if this type of documentation would be accepted as evidence of previous infection by your airline and destination country.
