What Are Travel Health Documents?

Travel health documents for coronavirus are entry requirements for many destinations during the COVID-19 pandemic.

They have become a mandatory requirement to visit a number of countries across the world during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. They have been introduced with the aim of preventing the further spread of COVID-19 across international borders.

There are several types, including the following:

  • Travel health certificates
  • Health declaration forms
  • Fit-to-fly certificates

Travel health certificates may certify that the holder has recently tested negative for COVID-19.

A fit to fly health certificate confirms that a traveler has been deemed healthy enough to visit an international destination by a medical professional, and has not displayed any symptoms of coronavirus prior to departure.

They may be requested by an airline before the traveler is permitted to board a flight, as well as by immigration authorities on arrival at a border checkpoint of the destination.

COVID-19 travel health certificates should not be confused with certificates of good health for pets, also known as a veterinary certificate or a zoo sanitary certificate. These act as proof of inoculation for pets when transporting animals between different countries.

Travel Health Certificate Requirements

The requirements for countries that require a COVID-19 test certificate will vary depending on your travel destination.

It is often necessary to have proof of a negative test rest result for coronavirus. Many destinations include this as a mandatory requirement to get a travel health certificate.

The type of test requested varies. In some cases, a rapid antigen or antibody test will be accepted. In others, it will be necessary to have taken an RT-PCR COVID-19 test. This testing method is used to identify an active infection by locating 3 different genes in the virus. It takes longer to process than a rapid antigen test.

In many cases where a PCR test is required, the traveler is required to have been tested no earlier than 72 hours prior to departure from their country of residence. However, this depends on the destination. Therefore, it is important to check the specific requirements for the country you wish to visit in advance.

Fit-to-fly certificates  require the traveler to undergo a medical screening by a health professional and provide evidence of this. This may involve vital checks, such as having a doctor listen to the patient’s lungs to check for infection

The cost of obtaining a travel health certificate depends on the type of COVID-19 test requested. It also varies depending on whether other services such as vital checks are required.

Health Declaration Form, Certificate or Passport: What Is the Difference?

Governments around the world are responding to the coronavirus pandemic in different ways and implementing varying measures and restrictions to contain the spread of COVID-19.

Many authorities require foreign visitors to present a travel health certificate and/or a completed health declaration form to enter their territory.

The difference between these documents is that the certificate contains proof of a negative COVID-19 test certified by a medical professional.

A travel health declaration form, on the other hand, is a statement signed by the traveler that they are not experiencing any coronavirus symptoms.

Vaccination certificates and vaccine passports

Another measure that is being adopted by a number of countries is the vaccine certificate for COVID-19. This document certifies that the holder has already been vaccinated against coronavirus.

Depending on the entry rules for the destination, a vaccination certificate may be accepted in lieu of the 2 documents outlined above. However, in some cases, both a certification of vaccination and a health declaration will be requested.

Several airline companies and governments have now launched a digital COVID passport. These show whether the traveler has been vaccinated against COVID-19. Some also show negative COVID-19 test results. 

These COVID passes make it easier to collect and store this information to present to the relevant authorities. One example is the COVID vaccine passport launched by China.

Who Can Issue a Travel Health Declaration Form?

Each country is responsible for issuing its own individualized document. These can usually be obtained online, printed, and presented upon arrival in the destination.

Travelers who need a travel health certificate for their destination may first be required to obtain a COVID-19 test result from a laboratory approved by the government of their destination. Then, in many cases, they can apply for the fit-to-fly certificate online.
