You'll be able to access health declaration forms in our COVID-19 Information Centre. You’ll also be able to access some of these health forms when you’re in the air via our inflight WiFi, free of charge.
We recommend that you complete the necessary forms prior to arriving at your destination, so that your arrival experience is a smooth one.
If you declare having any symptoms consistent with COVID-19, our airport teams will contact our medical assistance provider who will advise on acceptance of passengers based on the guidelines from the relevant medical authorities.
If you have been previously diagnosed with COVID-19, we recommend that you carry documentation confirming that you have recovered and are no longer contagious in case this is requested by authorities on departure, arrival or during any transit stops.
As requirements can change at short notice, we suggest passengers view the latest travel restriction information prior to arriving at the airport.
Our airport teams will accept passengers on flights based on the latest updates from the relevant immigration authorities at the time of check-in.
