What is a Covid recovery certificate?

Numerous regions all over the world are currently accepting proof of recovery from Covid from international travellers. Travellers who have had and recovered from a Covid infection can use Covid recovery certificates to enter certain countries with the same requirements that apply for the fully vaccinated passengers.

People who recovered from Covid 6 months prior to travelling may apply for this certificate to prove their recovery status.

Furthermore, applicants for a Covid recovery certificate must not have any active symptoms of Covid. It is essential that they can present a positive result from a valid test. However, the positive test date must be at least 7 days prior to the date of application for the certificate.

Nevertheless, the entry requirements of countries and regions may vary. There are different policies around the world concerning how long a post-recovery Covid immunity is considered valid. Please check your destination country’s most recent travel rule updates and entry requirements on the government’s foreign travel advice page.
