Fit to Fly Certification

Due to the prevailing pandemic situation, most of the countries and airlines have enforced travelling restrictions on those who are travelling from different countries, states, and regions. These restrictions are critical in minimizing the spread of COVID-19. Passengers have their reasons to migrate from country to country. For example:Travelling for family emergencies, students who are residential and non-residential  willing to return to their home countries.

For these kind of reasons, Gogodoc is providing a fit-to-fly certificate for those who require travelling during this pandemic situation.

Normally, when you are having health-related issues, your airline requires a fit-to-fly certificate to know that you are in good health to fly and that it would not be a risk for you and for those who have you on the plane.

Air travel is normally not allowed in the following cases;

  • If you have undergone any recent brain surgery
  • Recent eye operations
  • Recent heart attacks
  • Severe chronic respiratory disease
  • Recent gastrointestinal surgery
  • Recent abdominal trauma
  • Recent stroke
  • Any active infectious disease
  • Increased intracranial pressure
