Please click on this link to download the diver questionnaire and follow the steps on the form. Should you answer ‘yes’ to any of the 10 questions on page 1, you may have to answer some additional questions on the second page. The form will guide you which steps you’ll have to take. In the end, you’ll either be fit to dive or you will have to undergo a medical evaluation (page 3). To obtain a dive medical, fill out the first 2 pages, print out all 3 and present them to a health professional.
Perhaps a phone call to your local practice will give you more detailed information. This particular issue is not regulated in the UK and each doctor may give you different options.
The above form is only one option. Any form will do, as long as it is endorsed by a qualified physician.
Should you wish to have your dive medical done in Menorca, we are happy to arrange a visit for you. Our local doctor does speak English, so communication is not a problem. The examination will take approximately 30 mins.
In Spain, the dive medical is valid for 2 years, unless otherwise stated on the certificate itself. Bring the original with you (we will make a copy for our records).
In Spain, a dive insurance that covers hyperbaric treatment is compulsory by law. A general travel insurance, your normal health insurance or any insurance cover that you may have on your credit card, often does not include scuba diving, or possibly only for an insufficient amount. If scuba diving is included in any of your personal insurances, please print out the first page with your personal details and the page where scuba diving and the amount covered is mentioned, and bring it with you.
Should you be unable to provide us with your insurance details, or should the amount be insufficient, you can purchase dive insurance from Scuba Medic with us at minimal cost.
