FAQ n.115303

I understand I am supposed to provide a statement saying that I am healthy. What does it looks like, how do I get it and who will issue me the statement of health? Do I need one for each member of my family?

Answer

Yes, passengers will indeed need to provide a COVID-19 health statement, with details about their health status. The health statement is a self-declaration, completed by the passenger and asks questions such as whether you have COVID-19 symptoms (Fever or chills, Cough, Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, Fatigue, Muscle or body aches, Headache, New loss of taste or smell, Sore throat, Congestion or runny nose, Nausea or vomiting, Diarrhoea),  have tested positive for COVID-19, have been in recent contact with someone who is infected or are in quarantine. 

You should receive the form to be completed from your airline before you depart for the airport. The statement can be made available to passengers during the online check-in process, for example, or via an SMS link. Passengers will be requested to acknowledge reading this information and sign or electronically authenticate their health statement. Where available, please use the electronic health statement form. 

A separate declaration is usually needed for each traveller, though there may be exceptions in the case of families travelling together or other special cases. Airlines will manage such declarations in accordance with applicable data protection rules.

For an example health statement have a look at Annex 2 of the COVID-19 Aviation Health Protocol, but please note that the actual form provided may differ.  

Contact your airline for more details.
