PADI Medical Form
All PADI Advance Open Water students must complete a medical form before starting the course (click the link below to view)
If the answer is YES to ANY of the questions, please print out the form and see a Doctor before traveling to Con Dao to obtain medical certification that it is safe for you to dive. We cannot do this on the island. If your answers are all NO’s, we can complete paperwork when you get here and start your course.
Also please note that when diving in Con Dao we require guests to be covered via insurance for diving, and emergency evacuation due to the remoteness of the island and limited medical facilities. If this is not already covered by your travel insurance policy, we recommend DAN (Divers Alert Network) for their coverage.
