Health Advice for Kenya

There are no compulsory vaccinations required for entry to Kenya unless you are arriving from an area infected with Yellow Fever, in which case a Certificate of Inoculation against Yellow Fever is required from travelers older than one year.

Visitors coming from other countries in Africa where Yellow Fever may occur, including Ethiopia, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda and Zanzibar, require a Yellow Fever certificate.

Some countries, including Australia, Bahrain, China, Dubai, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mauritius, Oman, Rwanda, Seychelles, Singapore, Tanzania, Thailand and Uganda require arriving visitors from Kenya or elsewhere in East Africa to have a Yellow Fever vaccination certificate. So if you are travelling to one of these countries after a stay in Kenya then you need to have a Yellow Fever certificate.

The other recommended vaccinations are Typhoid, Hepatitis and Polio, and anti-malarial medication is essential.

Anti-malarial drugs should be taken prior to arrival, please seek medical advice. It is also advisable to try and avoid mosquito bites by using repellent and by wearing suitable cover-up clothes in the evening.

It is a mandatory requirement that all our clients travelling to Africa should have comprehensive travel insurance which includes cover for medical treatment and emergency air evacuation.
