Access our Proof of Recovery Service from anywhere in the world and confirm your recovery from COVID-19 for travel.
Had a positive COVID test in the last 6 months? Instead of risking a positive PCR test, many countries will now accept a COVID-19 Certificate of Recovery as a method of meeting entry requirements.
The Certificate confirms recent infection with SARS-CoV-2 via PCR, and your subsequent recovery. We offer this as an online submission service, so no need to visit the clinic!
To obtain a Certificate of Recovery you must have the following:
To receive the Certificate of Recovery you will need to complete an online submission which will be reviewed by a healthcare professional.
Certificates can only be issued during our opening hours (Monday-Friday 9am-6:00pm) but you can make your submission at any time.
Our proof of recovery service can be accessed within 180 days of a positive covid test.
Please note, some countries (such as the U.S.A) require the test to be within 90 days so please check the requirements of your destination.
You must also have completed your government mandated isolation period. For most countries you can access this service on Day 8 (with Day 0 being the day the positive test was taken) as long as you have completed 2 negative Rapid Antigen LFTs, but please check the requirements of your destination.
For Austria you can only access this service on Day 15 for it to be valid for travel.
The most common scenario that leads to a certificate not being received is that the certificate email has been filtered into your junk folder. Please check your junk/spam folder for your certificate before contacting us.
If you cannot find your certificate in your junk folder after 3 working hours, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org
Once we have received your submission, one of our healthcare professionals will review the information and your Proof of Recovery Certificate will be emailed to you within 3 working hours.
Our working hours are Monday- Friday 09:00- 18:00. If you submit after 17:00 on a Friday, you should expect the certificate on a Monday.
It is no longer necessary to book a GP consultation for this service.
The proof of recovery certificates are dated for the day of submission. It is not possible to retrospectively date your certificate of recovery nor have it dated in advance.
Our Proof of Recovery service compiles your positive test result and your photo ID. You then complete an online medical form which is reviewed by one of our healthcare assistants. After they have assessed these we will provide you with a digital certificate of recovery.
7 days after you test positive (with day 0 being the day you've tested positive) in accordance with the government guidelines on isolation. This is also predicated on the fact you've produced 2 negative Rapid Antigen LFTs 24 hours apart. On day 8 you can submit your form.
Please note for Austria this will be 14 days after. On the 15th day you can submit your form.
Any result needs a sample date, result date, name, date of birth and result. You can use an NHS lateral flow result, but please be aware that most countries require a positive PCR result.
You will need one of the following to access our Proof of Recovery Service:
- Positive PCR certificate showing a positive result with your name, date of birth and date of swab
- Positive LFD (antigen) test either taken by a private provider show your name, date of birth, and date of test.
- NHS Notification of positive lateral flow test result (rapid antigen) or PCR test result showing your name, date of birth and date of test.
This will depend on the destination country requirements. Each government will mention if they accept non-EU proof of recovery or vaccination certificates.
Proof of Recovery Certificates are suitable for all ages.
In a crowded market for COVID testing services, there are three reasons why you should use Mayfield Clinic
Whilst no COVID-19 PCR testing is infallible, throughout the crisis, we've strived to ensure that we consistently deliver PCR coronavirus testing to meet the expectations of our customers. This has included using 7 different laboratories, shifting capacity as required to deliver the fasted and most reliable testing possible.
For our same-day PCR testing we run daily point-to-point couriers from all of our testing sites directly to the laboratories. This differs from other services that might rely on postal services for testing.
All of our COVID testing services are overseen by our advisory board of GMC registered general practitioners. Onsite testing services are delivered by General Practitioners or trained Healthcare Professionals. Testing is conducted under our UKAS ISO17025 accreditation and our CQC registration (applicable to our Oxford head office).
Mayfield Clinic has offered a wide array of COVID-19 testing throughout the pandemic delivered across our national footprint. As a business, our focus is on producing reliable and efficient COVID test results for our customers. We offer a range of private COVID testing services including Fit to Fly PCR testing and rapid antigen travel testing.

How does the Proof of Recovery Service Work?
In order to obtain a Proof of Recovery Certificate, you will need to submit a photograph of your ID (e.g., Passport / Driver's License), and a proof of a positive COVID-19 test result (either Lateral Flow/PCR), dated longer than 8 days ago and within 180 days. The proof of a positive result must clearly state your name, date of birth and date of test.
In addition to uploading your ID and positive test result, you will also be required to complete a medical questionnaire regarding your health. All this information will need to be submitted on an online form through our website, to which you will be provided the link through your confirmation email.
Once we have received your submission, one of our healthcare professionals will review the information and your Proof of Recovery Certificate will be emailed to you within 3 working hours.
