About this medical letter

Pregnancy fit-to-fly certificate

Pregnancy fit-to-fly certificate

If you’re pregnant and planning to travel by air or sea, you may require a fit-to-fly certificate confirming that both you and your baby are safe to travel.

Our doctors can provide you with a same-day medical certificate that will confirm your due date, and that you are not at risk of complications. 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.
  • Confirmation of a singleton or multiple pregnancy.
  • Your gestation at the time of departure and return, and estimated delivery date.
  • Confirmation that your pregnancy is progressing normally, that you are in good health and fit to fly.
  • Signature and authorisation by one of our GMC-registered UK doctors.
  • Contact details of ZoomDoc Health with a QR code enabling a verification check.


Important – flying while pregnant

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

  • Less than 36 weeks’ gestation (singleton pregnancy)
  • Less than 32 weeks’ gestation (multiple pregnancy)

However, flying while pregnant with any known health issues or complications could put both you and your pregnancy at risk. If you have previously been advised not to fly for any reason, or if your pregnancy is deemed more complicated and high risk, we will be unable to provide you with a letter.

Unfortunately, our doctors will be unable to provide you with a fit-to-fly certificate if:

  • Your BMI is 30 or above at the start of your pregnancy – because there is increased risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT or blood clots) while flying.
  • You are experiencing a more complicated pregnancy with underlying health conditions or risk factors – it’s safer for you to be assessed in person.
  • You have any current or previous history of the following: blood clots or deep vein thrombosis (DVT), high blood pressure, miscarriage after 18 weeks’ gestation, a heart or lung condition, severe anaemia, sickle cell disease, epilepsy, pre-eclampsia or a low-lying placenta.

Please note: ZoomDoc Health is unable to complete any additional airline or cruise forms separate from this fit-to-fly certificate.


How does it work?

Following the purchase of your pregnancy fit-to-fly certificate, you will be asked to complete a short online form with your medical and pregnancy information and send us your recent maternity notes.

Your evidence is then reviewed by our doctors, prior to issuing you with your pregnancy fit-to-fly certificate. 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 simple online process:

Step 1 - Upload evidence, Step 2 - Doctor validates, Step 3 - Recieve document same day


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
  • Your gestation at the time of both departure and return
  • Your estimated delivery date
  • Any health or pregnancy-related issues
  • A copy of your recent maternity notes
  • Details of your regular NHS GP (if you have one)



When to test


Unbelievably good service

Unbelievably good service. We had to get a fit to fly note for pregnancy very quickly and after sending over all my partner's pregnancy notes (in Polish!) and doing a questionnaire over the phone it was quickly received hassle free. Next level customer service.

Cruise Note

In summary, ZoomDoc saved my butt. My GP refused to write a fit to fly/cruise note for me as they said "I am not indemnified to do it" which was incredibly frustrating as every cruise line requires a pregnancy note so other GPs are clearly writing the notes for women. ZoomDoc had a quick turnaround time and switched the fit-to-fly to fit-to-cruise which was all I needed. No hassle, just great service. THANK YOU x

Very quick and easy service

Very quick and easy service — once I'd uploaded the requested information I received a pregnancy fit to fly certificate within 10 minutes. My email query was answered promptly too. The pregnancy fit to fly certificate was accepted by Jet2.

Quick and easy

I needed a fit to fly certificate for my pregnancy which my local GP wouldn't provide. After I uploaded all my documents/medical history etc. it only took a couple of hours for them to give me the all clear and provide a certificate, even sending an email with advice when on the flight. Would definitely recommend and use again.
