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:

  • A positive result no more than 180 days old, with your full name and the test date (this varies depending on destination, please check before booking)
  • You must not have symptoms of a cough or fever
  • You can access the service on Day 8, with Day 0 being the day the positive test was taken, as long as you have completed your government mandated isolation period and produced two negative LFTs 24 hours apart).
  • Please note, that for travel to Austria you will only be able to access the service on Day 15.

To receive the Certificate of Recovery you will need to complete an online submission which will be reviewed by a healthcare professional.

We can only issue Certificates during our opening hours (9am-5.30pm) but you can make your submission at any time.


Any questions?

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 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.

Proof of Recovery Certificates are suitable for all ages.

Any result needs a sample date, result date, name, date of birth and result. Normally these are not available on the NHS lateral flow results, and you will need to have a positive PCR. Most countries also require a positive PCR result.

This will depend on the destination country requirements. Each government will mention if they accept non-EU proof of recovery or vaccination certificates.

Why use Mayfield Clinic's testing services?

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 PCR Fit To Fly travel 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 Fit To Fly 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).

Why Mayfield Clinic?

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, rapid antigen travel testing, Day 2 and 8 mandatory testing, and rapid antigen arrivals testing. All of our testing centres have live availability, allowing you to book last-minute COVID tests throughout the week.

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 and date of birth.

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. It is no longer necessary to book a GP consultation for this service.
