About this medical letter
Travel with medication letter
If you are travelling overseas with medicines, many airlines and countries will require a medical letter as evidence.
Our doctors can provide you with a same-day medical letter confirming that your medicines are prescribed to you (and when), as well as the health condition you need them for. No appointment is needed – simply apply online.
What will I receive?
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 passport number.
- A list of your prescribed medications.
- Confirmation that you need to travel with them.
- Signature and authorisation by one of our GMC-registered UK doctors.
- Contact details of ZoomDoc Health with a QR code enabling a verification check.
How does it work?
Following the purchase of your travelling with medication letter, you will be asked to complete a short online form and upload an image of your current prescription or repeat prescription form.
Your evidence is then reviewed by our doctors, prior to issuing you with your medical letter. If our doctors have any further questions, they may give you a quick call.
Accepted worldwide, this digital PDF letter is signed by a UK-registered doctor and includes a QR code enabling verification.

”Our amazing 5-star Trustpilot reviews are testament to the high quality of service that our team of doctors provides. When travelling internationally with multiple medications, it is often wise to have a doctor’s letter confirming that the medications are prescribed and belong to you – particularly with any controlled drugs and strong analgesics. In addition, our medical certificates and letters all contain QR codes that make it easy to confirm their validity.“
