Pregnancy fit-to-fly certificate

If you’re pregnant and planning to travel by air or sea, you may require a fit-to-fly certificate confirming that both you and your baby are safe to travel.

Our doctors can provide you with a same-day medical certificate that will confirm your due date, and that you are not at risk of complications. No appointment is needed – simply apply online.


What will I receive?

You will receive a verifiable digital PDF letter signed by a medical professional and sent directly to your mobile, containing the following details:

Your name, date of birth and passport number.

Confirmation of a singleton or multiple pregnancy.

Your gestation at the time of departure and return, and estimated delivery date.

Confirmation that your pregnancy is progressing normally, that you are in good health and fit to fly.

Signature and authorisation by one of our GMC-registered UK doctors.

Contact details of ZoomDoc Health with a QR code enabling a verification check.


Important – flying while pregnant

To allow us to assess your condition and issue a medical certificate, we will require the following information:

  • Less than 36 weeks’ gestation (singleton pregnancy)
  • Less than 32 weeks’ gestation (multiple pregnancy)

However, flying while pregnant with any known health issues or complications could put both you and your pregnancy at risk. If you have previously been advised not to fly for any reason, or if your pregnancy is deemed more complicated and high risk, we will be unable to provide you with a letter.

Unfortunately, our doctors will be unable to provide you with a fit-to-fly certificate if:

Your BMI is 30 or above at the start of your pregnancy – because there is increased risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT or blood clots) while flying.

You are experiencing a more complicated pregnancy with underlying health conditions or risk factors – it’s safer for you to be assessed in person.

You have any current or previous history of the following: blood clots or deep vein thrombosis (DVT), high blood pressure, miscarriage after 18 weeks’ gestation, a heart or lung condition, severe anaemia, sickle cell disease, epilepsy, pre-eclampsia or a low-lying placenta.

Please note: ZoomDoc Health is unable to complete any additional airline or cruise forms separate from this fit-to-fly certificate.
