Yellow Fever Warning

When planning your next holiday, please make sure that you have read all the health entry requirements for your intended destination. Due to the high incidents of yellow fever and other infectious illnesses, the Department of Home Affairs (DHA) South Africa has introduced a strict programme to control the importation of these diseases. Warnings have been issued to all border officials and foreign affairs missions to enforce stricter control.

According to International Health Regulations, a valid international yellow fever certificate is required for all passengers over the age of one, arriving in or from a yellow fever infected area. Passengers who are unable to produce a valid international certificate of vaccination on arrival in South Africa will either be placed under quarantine or refused entry into South Africa. Please note that passengers in transit in Dakar (not leaving the aircraft), do not require a certificate.

The yellow fever certificate becomes valid 10 days after date of vaccination.
