Medical certificate and MEDIF form

The MEDIF form is used by airlines to manage passenger requiring special assistance and medical clearance. It has two attachments: Attachment 1 (Information Sheet for Passengers Requiring Special Assistance) and Attachment 2 (Information Sheet for Passengers requiring medical clearance).

Medical clearance is required and will be given from the Air Serbia Medical Center (ASMC). ASMC may ask for additional information before giving a final replay to the request. It is also vital for us to know exactly what nursing care is required during a flight.

MEDIF form must be submitted to the nearest Air Serbia Sales Office or e-mailed to special.assistance@airserbia.com at least 48 hours prior to departure of the flight, along with the latest medical report from the treating physician in English. The medical report should be issued not more than 10 days prior to the date of travel.

All fields in the MEDIF must be completed, signed and dated. Incomplete forms will not be accepted for assessment.

Once the ASMC issues the approval, you will be informed and your reservation will be updated. If you have booked your ticket through a travel agency, your travel agent should contact you

Air Serbia must be notified immediately of any change in your condition prior to travel. In the event of sudden change in your condition during the journey, we shall ask you to obtain another MEDIF form in order to confirm that you are fit to continue traveling by air.
