Travelling when Pregnant
If You Are Pregnant
Although pregnancy is not a disability, it is important to recognise that an expectant mother with an uncomplicated single pregnancy up to 36 weeks of pregnancy (last 4 weeks of pregnancy prior to confinement) or an expectant mother with an uncomplicated multiple pregnancy up to 32 weeks of pregnancy (last 8 weeks of pregnancy prior to confinement) or a mother within the first 7 days after giving birth cannot be accepted as a passenger on an EVA flight.
Acceptance of Pregnant Passengers
- An expectant mother with an uncomplicated single pregnancy during the last 12 to 4 weeks of pregnancy prior to confinement or an expectant mother with an uncomplicated multiple pregnancy during the last 12 to 8 weeks of pregnancy prior to confinement must complete a medical information sheet (MEDIF) within the 10 days prior to flight departure and must confirm booking by submitting the required documents no later than 48 hours prior to the planned departure.
- No medical certificate required before 28 weeks of pregnancy. However, a medical certificate must be presented for your return flight if it is scheduled beyond the 28th week of your pregnancy.
- EVA recommends that pregnant passengers need to inform our reservation staff of the expected date of delivery, single or multiple pregnancy, and a strong recommendation that all pregnant passengers carry their prenatal medical records with the required information while travelling.
- Some countries place limitations on the entry of non-national pregnant women. It is advisable to check with the local diplomatic office to confirm the country's specific requirements.
- Pregnant passengers who violate the regulations or submit false information may potentially cause significant disruption and expense to the airline and other passengers. EVA Airways reserves the right to recover its costs (including, but not limited to flight diversion, delay claims, etc.) though legal actions.
