Digital document check

For many journeys it is necessary to have the evidence of your Covid-19 documents checked (e.g. a Covid test).

Use our digital services to check your Covid-19 travel documents. Upload the documents required for your flight for checking by our Health Entry Support Centre – subject of course to maintaining data protection. You can submit your documents up to 12 hours before departure.

This means you will be notified in good time whether your travel documents are valid for entry or if you have to act urgently. If the check is successful, you will be issued with your digital boarding pass as usual.

The additional information you provide on the form will help us to process your enquiry more quickly.

Using the digital check of your entry documents in accordance with the relevant Covid regulations of your country of travel is voluntary. You can also continue to have them checked manually at the airport.

The digital document check works like this

Upload

Upload your complete entry documents in encrypted form using the form (up to twelve hours before departure).

Check

Your documents are unloaded in encrypted form and we will then only check that they are complete and correct.

Confirmation

You will receive confirmation that the documents are valid for entry or you will receive feedback that the documents you submitted were incomplete or invalid.

Check-in

Your digital boarding pass is issued once the check has been completed successfully.

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. This 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 at your destination. 

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