Digital document check

For many journeys - especially long-haul flights - it is necessary to have proof of your Covid-19 documents (e.g. proof of vaccination) checked even before your departure and to present an entry declaration on entering the country. Use our free offer to have your documents checked and send us the Covid-19 documents required for your flight no sooner than 72 hours and no later than eight hours before departure. This means you will be notified in good time whether your Covid-19 documents are valid or whether you need to act urgently.

Questions and answers about the digital document check

Information about data protection and the processing of your information

Providing you consent to the processing of your information in accordance with Art. 9(2)(a) GDPR, your travel-related booking information and the entry documents referred to above will be uploaded via the encrypted web form. The data is processed by our Health Entry Support Centre solely for the purpose of checking that you have complied with the entry requirements of the country concerned. You will be notified of the result of the check by email. The data and documents you provided will be deleted no later than 48 hours after your arrival at your destination.

Some countries require proof of valid foreign travel insurance for entry. Please check the regulations of your destination country. 

The Health Document Check does not check your passport or visa data. You should therefore upload your passport only if the country you are travelling to requires a Covid test with confirmation of your identity.
