Chickenpox recovery fit-to-fly doctor’s letter

If you or your child has recently had chickenpox and recovered, and the spots have fully scabbed over, your airline will require a fit-to-fly certificate confirming you are no longer infectious.

By uploading video evidence of your condition, our doctors can issue you with a same-day medical certificate confirming you are fit-to-fly. 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 flight details.
  • Confirmation of when your chickenpox began, and that your spots have now scabbed over and you are fit to fly.

What will I need to supply?

To allow us to assess your condition and issue a medical certificate, we will require the following information:

  • A photo of your passport
  • Confirmation of when your chickenpox spots first appeared, and that you are now well
  • A 30-second to 1-minute video confirming that your chickenpox spots have scabbed over
  • Details of your airline and flight



What happens if I’m not fully recovered from chickenpox?

If our doctors feel the chickenpox spots are not fully scabbed over, and that you or your child are still infectious, they will issue a letter stating that you are ‘Not fully recovered’ and ‘Not fit-to-fly’. This can be used for insurance purposes and rearranging flights with your airline or travel company.

Chickenpox can cause problems with immunocompromised individuals and during pregnancy. Our doctors have a clinical responsibility to ensure that we only sign off patients to travel who are no longer infectious.



When to test



Daughter came out in chickenpox whilst on holiday, devastated as we were in Florida and half way through our trip! Panic started to set in as it's a long flight home and she was contagious. Zoom doc was easy to use for a fit to fly letter once the spots started scabbinv over. Have already told family to use when away just purely for how efficient they were!

Fast and efficent!

Our son had chickenpox whilst we were away. I realised last minute that although he was no longer contagious he required a fit to fly certificate. I ordered the certificate through ZoomDoc, took a short video and sent it through. We had our certificate within a matter of minutes. Very good service and very good value.
