Health Certificate

When applying for a visa you must show a Health certificate, which shall not be confused with the health insurance certificate.

Health certificate will be issued after visiting a doctor and being checked for general infectious diseases. The certificate must state you don’t have any infectious disease or any acute disease according to the International Health Regulation from 2005 and it will be translated into Spanish.

We recommend you the letter to include the following text:

“This certificate verifies that Mr./Ms. … is free of drug addiction, mental illness, and does not suffer from any disease that could cause serious repercussions to public health according to the specifications of the International Health Regulations of 2005. These contagious diseases include, but are not limited to smallpox, poliomyelitis by wild polio virus, the human influenza caused by a new subtype of virus and the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), cholera, pneumonic plague, Bellow fever, viral hemorrhagic fevers (e.g.: Ebola, Lassa, Marbug), West Nile Virus and other illnesses of special importance nationally or regionally (e.g.: Dengue Fever, Rift Valley Fever, and meningococcal disease).”
