*Do You Need A COVID Test to Fly?
Many countries including U.S. territories and states (Alaska & Hawaii) now require a negative coronavirus test and often within 72 hours of departure. In some cases a health certificate or a fit-to-travel certification is also mandated.
Our clinic can provide the COVID-19 molecular (PCR) test with results in 24 – 48 hours along with a certification to fly if necessary. Travelers going to destinations that don’t require testing may still consider testing both before and after flying to ensure exposure has not occurred in transit and to limit possible exposure to others in the community. Appointments are available in Edmond and Broken Arrow offices.
We recommend contacting your airline and/or the the embassy of the country you are flying to for the most up-to-date requirement as rule changes are frequent.
International travel offers an incredible opportunity to dive into foreign language, food, and culture. Passport Health Oklahoma is here to help you prepare for your overseas trip and ensure you return with nothing more than the best of memories! With foreign travel comes the risk of exposure to foreign diseases; don’t leave home before fully understanding the health risks you and your family may encounter while traveling.
Ideally, seek advice and immunization 4-6 weeks prior to departure to ensure best protection from vaccine-preventable diseases. In a time crunch? Vaccination close to your date of departure is still often helpful; our travel nurses will gladly assist you in these questions during your individually tailored travel consultation. We provide an International Certificate of Vaccination (Yellow Card) with a record of the immunizations you received during your visit.
