There are no compulsory vaccinations for South Africa required for travellers from Western Europe to gain entry. However, a Yellow Fever vaccination certificate could be required for travellers coming from some endemic zones in Africa and the Americas.

Travellers on scheduled airlines whose flights have originated outside the areas regarded as infected (or who are only in transit through these areas) are not required to possess a certificate. If the flight originated from within a Yellow fever endemic area a certificate may then be required.

It is important that you speak to your doctor or local travel clinic to receive the latest information about vaccinations and to ensure that all your vaccinations are up to date before setting off on your tour. Certain countries require a yellow fever booklet.

Please note that it is solely your responsibility that your vaccinations are up to date and that you carry proof of your vaccinations with you. Nine Yards Travel will not be held responsible in case of any delays or costs incurred if you are not allowed entry into a country.

Your local travel clinic will also be able to assist with the necessary precautions to be taken with regards to malaria and other tropical diseases.
