Yellow Fever Update for Zambia!

YELLOW FEVER VACCINATION REQUIRED FOR PASSENGERS TRAVELLING TO AND FROM ZAMBIA (including Livingstone)

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has revised the Yellow Fever vaccination recommendations for Africa. The South African Department of Health has subsequently issued a statement that all travellers from South Africa to Zambia and travellers from Zambia to South Africa will now require proof of yellow fever vaccination. Previously, this was not required. All in-transit passengers between the two destinations, irrespective of the time period in transit, will also require proof of yellow fever vaccination.


The information that we have received indicates that owing to the short notice of the implementation, there will be a grace period until 01 July to accommodate travelling passengers, however we do encourage the requirement to be passed on to future travellers immediately.
