Verified to Fly?

If you’re travelling to a destination with COVID-19 requirements, we recommend that you get Verified to Fly before you go. Check etihad.com/destinationguide to see whether you need to get verified, then upload your documents from 72 hours before your flight. We’ll verify your COVID-19 documents so you can arrive at the airport with total peace of mind.

You’ll automatically be Verified to Fly if your destination has removed all COVID-19 restrictions. Simply check in online when it opens 30 hours before your flight departure.

This service is not available if you’re travelling to China or with our partner airlines. If you’re flying with a partner airline, please check their document check process.

We’re reviewing documents as quickly as possible, and will prioritise submissions based on your flight departure time. If you haven’t been Verified to Fly in time for your flight, please make your way to the airport as usual.
