For routine pregnancies, you can travel up to the end of the 36th week for single pregnancies and the end of the 32nd week for multiple pregnancies (e.g. twins).
Medical clearance is required if you are having complications with your pregnancy (that is, if the pregnancy is not routine).
After 28 weeks, you need to carry a certificate or letter from a registered medical practitioner or registered midwife confirming:
