Covid Proof of Recovery Certificate

COVID-19 Proof of Recovery Certificates


If you have had a positive COVID-19 test in the last 6 months and require a COVID Recovery Certificate for travel, we can supply one for you quickly and hassle-free. It is important for us to ensure you have completed the necessary isolation period and are fit and well to travel. All of our certificates are provided after a review with one of our GPs.

To be eligible for a COVID recovery certificate you MUST have:

  • Proof of an officially registered positive COVID-19 test.
  • Completed the required self-isolation period, currently 5 full days after your positive test.
  • Proof of two officially registered negative lateral flow tests completed 24 hours apart,  no earlier than days 5 and 6 and have no temperature. Alternatively, individuals who are still positive on their rapid lateral flow tests after day 5 must stay in isolation until they have had 2 consecutive negative tests taken on separate days or complete a full 10 day isolation period.

Simply book a GP appointment at any of our GP clinics nationwide to get your signed certificate by one of our doctors. Please mention “COVID Recovery Certificate” in the notes when booking your appointment.

 

You must bring the following to your GP appointment to ensure we can provide your Covid Recovery Certificate:

Proof of positive test

You must bring proof of your registered recent positive PCR test or lateral flow test. This must be within the last 6 months. Proof of two registered negative lateral flow tests taken on or after day 5, and at least 24 hours apart.

Passport

Please note we will not be able to provide proof of COVID recovery if you do not have all the above with you during your appointment.
