How does it work? 

Verified to Fly is available from seven days before your flight. We recommend that you send us your COVID-19 documents as soon as you can.

As long as your COVID-19 documents are in order, you’ll be Verified to Fly, subject to presenting a valid passport and visa at the airport. It’s your responsibility to make sure that you meet all visa and entry requirements for your destination – you may be denied boarding at the airport otherwise, even if you’ve been Verified to Fly.
