Health Tips

Vaccination against COVID 19 is highly recommended.

International Certificate of Vaccination for Yellow Fever is required upon arrival by all nationals above 1 year of age.

Hepatitis A, meningitis, polio, tetanus and typhoid inoculations are recommended but not a requirement.

Anti-malaria precautions should also be taken well in advance of travel and for a period following return home.

Visitors are advised to buy bottled drinking water, which is widely available.

Health care:

Health insurance is essential, preferably with cover for emergency evacuation. Good medical facilities are found in all the cities and major towns, but facilities outside urban areas are poor and emergency services are limited. Medical insurance is advised and should cover medical evacuation.
