Fit to Fly Certificates

Due to the current pandemic, many countries and airlines have imposed travel restrictions on passengers arriving from certain countries or regions, including the United States. While these restrictions are important to reduce the spread of COVID-19, passengers still need to travel for various reasons. For example, international and non-resident students may wish to return to their home country or state. Passengers may also need to travel abroad for family emergencies or other significant life events. For this reason, Urgent Care La Jolla is now offering Fit to Fly certificates for patients who need to travel during this difficult time.

We are conveniently located in the heart of La Jolla Village!

Learn More About Fit to Fly Certificates

For a Fit to Fly consultation, please contact your local embassy, consulate, or airline to determine if there are any specific documents that must be filled out by your doctor. Make sure to bring these documents to your appointment to be reviewed by our doctors. Call (858) 255-8325 to speak with one of our friendly Patient Coordinators to schedule your in-person or virtual appointment with Urgent Care La Jolla. During this appointment, your doctor will review your symptoms, medical history, and recent travel history. If you meet the criteria laid out by the requesting country, agency, or airline, the doctor will complete your documentation and certify your ability to travel safely. However, if your medical history does not meet the criteria, you will be referred to a different facility for follow-up care or COVID-19 testing.
Rest assured, we have your health in mind when making decisions regarding your fitness to fly. If you have any concerning symptoms, we suggest speaking with your primary care doctor or calling 2-1-1 San Diego to schedule a COVID-19 test with a local testing center before visiting our clinic. Your test results will be a useful tool when determining your fitness to fly. Please call Urgent Care La Jolla at (858) 255-8325 to schedule your consultation today!
