NEWS

June 23 rd, 2015

SA Health department has notified the WHO that SA requires all travellers, especially those from countries at risk, to present a certificate of vaccination against yellow fever. The new rule applies to everybody crossing SA’s borders. An exception will be made for those with a legal exemption certificate for medical reasons. The notice means that all travellers from low-risk countries might carry the virus, hence the need for proof of vaccination at the departure airport before entry to SA will be granted. Sao Tome and Principe, Somalia, Tanzania, and Zambia are among the countries with the highest risk, according to SA authorities. All travellers can visit the website of the Ministry of National Health on SA’s policy of vaccination against infectious diseases.
