A recovery certificate confirms that you’ve contracted COVID-19 before but have recovered and developed natural immunity to fight off re-infection.
If you are aged 5+ and have evidence of a COVID-19 test result between 10-180 days and have recovered, you will be eligible. Some countries the certificate may be valid for 90 days following a positive test or 180 days. Please check with your destination before you purchase the certificate.
People who have had Covid-19 usually recover after 10 days. But if you still feel sick and unwell you may have not recovered yet. The assessment will be based on the symptoms you may have during the assessment.
Most countries now accept both a PCR test or a *Rapid Antigen test as evidence of your recent Covid-19 infection (Please check destination requirements)
Please provide an official test report or NHS email containing your name, date of birth and type of test (must have been logged with the NHS)
We cannot accept photos of test cassettes, your tests need to have been verified by a healthcare professional.
