Documents required for travel in Level 3


Flying under level 3 is going to be a little different to the ordinary process. In order to gain access to the airport terminal, you will have to pass a temperature screening. You will also need to ensure that you have the following 5 things on you:

  1. You will have to have a face mask to enter the building
  2. Your ID, Driver's Licence or Passport
  3. A WhatsApp boarding pass, or at least a print-out of your boarding pass
  4. Your Health Declaration Document
  5. Your Travel Permit


Let's look at these documents a little more closely:

Health Declaration

Your Health Declaration is a form that's been put together by the Department of Health. You'll need to complete this document for the purposes of tracking and tracing and to declare that you believe yourself to be in good health. You'll need to print this document out and sign it - you will have to give a copy to the Port Health Authority agent at the entrance to the airport terminal. Make sure you print out two copies: One for your departure flight and one for your return flight.


Travel Permit

Under Alert Level 3, travel for recreational or leisure purposes is not permitted. People may, however, travel for business, or other reasons as permitted for inter-provincial reasons. Examples of these include:

  • Moving to a new place of residence
  • Caring for an immediate family member
  • Members of parliament performing oversight responsibilities
  • Learners and students who are travelling to schools or institution when they are permitted
  • Attending a funeral
  • To transport mortal remains
  • To obtain medical treatment
  • People returning to their place of residence from quarantine or isolation
  • any other movement permitted under regulation 41

The most common purpose of travel is for business. Customers can click here to create a business travel permit.
