Health Certificate

A form a physician fills out describing a person's medical condition. A health certificate contains information such as height, weight, blood pressure, communicable diseases and so forth. A health certificate may be required before a visa is issued. Alternatively, a health certificate may inform an insurer about a potential insured. It should be noted that, in some circumstances, animals must receive their own health certificates from a veterinarian before they may be transported.
