Yellow Fever certificate requirements

Jump to last reply

I want to clarify a misunderstanding/misinformation regarding the yellow fever shots required for entry into South Africa after visiting Zambia (Victoria Falls).
The TravelVax doctor who consulted us on our itinerary told us we would all need yellow fever shots since at the end of our trip we were flying home out of the Joburg airport AFTER visiting Victoria Falls (stayed in Zimbabwe but flew out of Zambia airport). I also found info on Fodors agreeing with that. The yellow fever shots are pricey ($125 US). And there were 7 of us. But we were told that we wouldn't be allowed off the plane in Joburg without them. So we all got them.
Didn't need them. There was never any mention of having them at any point. We assume that is because we flew directly back to the U.S. out of the JNB airport and never left the airport. We found out that it's only South Africa that requires the yellow fever shot if you've been in Zambia and the airport is international territory and not South Africa. So we technically never "reentered" South Africa.
Just didn't want anyone else to make that mistake.
