Questions About ‘Documentation of Recovery’
What is a 'Documentation of Recovery'?
The ‘Documentation of Recovery’ (also sometimes called ‘Certificate of Recovery’) is a document, signed by a licensed healthcare provider that will allow someone who recently recovered from COVID-19 (but still has a positive COVID test)–given that they have self-isolated for an adequate amount of time.
See requirements of self-isolation below.
On June 12, 2022, the official requirement of showing a negative COVID test to travel to the USA has been dropped, however, a number of airlines and countries currently still have this requirement.
Can I use a home COVID test (self-test)?
Unfortunately no. Home COVID tests (e.g. BINEX, etc) are not sufficient proof of when the quarantine/recovery period started; it needs to be an official test result (which needs to accompany the ‘documentation of recovery’ when you travel).
How much does it cost to get a Documentation of Recovery
Each QuickMD consultation only costs $75, which includes the doctor’s note (if all requirements of self-isolation are met). Should the doctor be unable to help you the visit is free.
Is the documentation of recovery I will receive official and accepted by the airlines?
A number of airlines require a ‘Documentation of Recovery’ to travel–a note which has to be provided by a licensed healthcare provider. Our forms are filled out by physicians who are licensed to practice in the United States.
Please check with your individual airline for any additional requirements they may have. Given the fluidity of the rules and regulations that are involving many different countries, airlines and jurisdictions, please always check first what applies to your individual situation as we are not liable for any damages caused.
Do I have to be an American citizen to get a Document of Recovery?
You do not need to be a US citizen or resident, however we require a local US address when you register as a patient with us.
Our ‘Documentation of Recovery’ is signed by licensed US healthcare providers.
How long will it take until I receive the Documentation of Recovery?
If you agree to email communication, you will receive the ‘Documentation of Recovery’ in PDF format by email within an hour after your consultation. Please check your spam folder if you have not received it.
What are the requirements to receive a Documentation of Recovery'?
If you have a positive COVID test you may end self-quarantine (and therefore receive a ‘Documentation of Recovery’) when one of the following criteria is met:
- 10 days have passed since your COVID-symptoms started (however given that this cannot be verified online, the collection date of your official COVID PCR or antigen test is generally used as day 0) or
- If you had no symptoms, 10 days must have passed since your COVID test collection date
Note that as of June 12, 2022, the official requirement of a negative COVID test prior to traveling back to the US was dropped. However, a number of airlines and countries still require you to show a negative test or a Documentation of Recovery if tested positive. Please contact your airline or embassy to confirm.
