Same-day medical fit-to-fly certificate, required by your airline to prove scabbed-over chickenpox is no longer infectious.
Availability: UK and International
If you or your child has recently had chickenpox and recovered, and the spots have fully scabbed over, your airline will require a fit-to-fly certificate confirming you are no longer infectious.
By uploading video evidence of your condition, our doctors can issue you with a same-day medical certificate confirming you are fit-to-fly. No appointment is needed – simply apply online.
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 flight details.
Confirmation of when your chickenpox began, and that your spots have now scabbed over and you are fit to fly.
Signature and authorisation by one of our GMC-registered UK doctors.
Contact details of ZoomDoc Health with a QR code enabling your airline to verify your letter.
Upload by 9pm for same-day service. This should be a 30 second video demonstrating that the spots have fully scabbed over.
Our doctors will look over the evidence you provide.
You’ll receive an email with your letter, with a QR code so they can be verified and accepted worldwide.
To allow us to assess your condition and issue a medical certificate, we will require the following information:
A photo of your passport
Confirmation of when your chickenpox spots first appeared, and that you are now well
A 30-second to 1-minute video confirming that your chickenpox spots have scabbed over
Details of your airline and flight
If our doctors feel the chickenpox spots are not fully scabbed over, and that you or your child are still infectious, they will issue a letter stating that you are ‘Not fully recovered’ and ‘Not fit-to-fly’. This can be used for insurance purposes and rearranging flights with your airline or travel company.
Chickenpox can cause problems with immunocompromised individuals and during pregnancy. Our doctors have a clinical responsibility to ensure that we only sign off patients to travel who are no longer infectious.
