On arrival:

  • All travellers must undergo a COVID-19 symptom check, including a body temperature check. If you have a body temperature above 37.5 degrees Celsius or any COVID-19 symptoms you must take a COVID-19 RT-PCR test and self-isolate until you receive a negative result.

If you cannot be vaccinated for approved medical reasons, you'll need to submit your exemption documents to us prior to departure, and you may be required to show evidence of a negative pre-departure COVID-19 test result at the airport.

Applying for clearance to travel

If you're unable to be vaccinated due to medical reasons or you return a positive pre-departure COVID-19 test result, you may still be able to travel with us in some circumstances:

  • Vaccination exemptions: You can request a vaccination exemption due to a medical condition that prevents you from being vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine. You'll also be required to show proof of a negative pre-departure COVID-19 test when you check-in.
  • Prior positive medical clearance: If you've previously had a COVID-19 infection, you may be able to apply for medical clearance based on a past positive infection, provided you're no longer infectious and don’t have any symptoms. Check the government requirements to see if they permit exceptions for past positive infections, for any countries you're travelling to or transiting through, before submitting your request to us.
