South Africa Enforcing Proof of Yellow Fever Vaccination

Jump to last reply

If you are traveling from several countries, but specifically Zambia, you require proof of Yellow Fever vaccination to enter or even transit (regardless of length of transit) South Africa. The new requirement was issued on 30 May 2011. Fortunately I learned of this just one week before we are scheduled to travel.

The South African Department of Health has issued a statement that all returning travelers from South Africa to Zambia and travelers 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.
