QUESTIONS ABOUT THE VERIFLY APP
What is a Confident Traveler Pass in VeriFLY?
Confident Traveler Passes provide travelers a one-stop-shop to making international travel easier. For participating locations and air carriers, VeriFLY’s Confident Traveler Pass provides simple instruction on their destination entry requirements. Travelers can complete the requirements and upload into VeriFLY before their arrival at the airport to help facilitate a more seamless and expedited experience.
What are passes and credentials?
Passes are essential to the VeriFLY App. You must have a valid pass to be able to access services such as a streamlined experience to verify travel requirements. To obtain a valid pass, you must have successfully completed all required steps to validate the credentials required for that pass. A pass will only be valid if all the credentials required for that pass are valid.
What if I have a connecting flight to my final destination?
VeriFLY ensures travelers will have met the required COVID related travel requirements for entry into you final destination. Travelers who are transiting through countries should check for any specific travel requirements for flight connections at that location.

IN-APP TROUBLESHOOTING QUESTIONS
How do I add a pass?
The passes available to you will appear when you choose the “Browse” button at the bottom of the app. Please read more about Adding Passes in our help center.
I have a valid VeriFLY pass for travel. How do I use it?
A valid pass ensures accuracy and compliance with the destination’s COVID entry requirements. Show your valid pass when you check-in at the airport.
My VeriFLY pass has status "Confirmed." What does that mean?
A confirmed pass status means you have validated all required credentials for the pass, but the pass is not ready for use. Most often, this occurs when a pass can only be active for a specific date/time and the user is outside of that period.
How long is my VeriFLY pass valid?
The VeriFLY pass is valid as long as the credentials required for that pass are valid. Validity periods are displayed in time/date format on each pass.
Is my VeriFLY pass linked to my airline boarding pass?
No. You will need to use your boarding pass and VeriFLY pass separately at the airport. We understand this can be an inconvenience and are actively working to improve this user experience.
AIRLINES TRAVEL QUESTIONS
Is this app for both international and domestic travelers?
VeriFLY is currently only used for international flights. For a full list destinations we support, please visit here.
Will customers be able to use the app for document validation upon arrival in their destination airport?
While VeriFLY will streamline and expedite the verification process for check-in at departure, customers will need to continue to follow the rules and regulations of their destination country (e.g. Jamaica). We are working to expand the VeriFLY app to international destinations so that it can be accepted on both ends of the travel journey for a more streamlined customer experience.
Will this app solution be accepted by local government authorities anywhere American flies?
Not right away, but that is the goal. We are actively participating in discussions with several countries to expand our use of the VeriFLY app..
Does the app eliminate the need to carry documentation?
No. Customers should continue to carry the necessary documentation proving ability to travel regardless of whether or not they are using the VeriFLY app.
If the app doesn’t eliminate the need to carry documentation, how does it streamline the traveling experience?
This is just the first step in a multi-phase process to make international travel easier for travelers. We are working to expand acceptance of the app for boarding to more destinations, and are actively participating in discussions with several countries to expand app acceptance. The ultimate goal is to give travelers a streamlined verification process on both ends of the travel journey.
When do I need to get a COVID test or vaccine?
Information on COVID testing or vaccine requirements specific to your travel destination can be found in the participating country's pass details in VeriFLY. More information can be found here.
Who do I contact if I am close to departure and have not yet received VeriFLY authorization?

How quickly are my COVID test or vaccine results uploaded to VeriFLY?
Travelers enter their travel details and upload required documentation directly in the app. As travelers verify each required element for travel, the app verifies that the customer’s COVID test or vaccine matches a country’s requirements and displays a simple “pass” or “fail” indicator.
