08 September 2020

Article: 54/3603

The country pages on the fitfortravel (for the general public) and TRAVAX (for health professionals) websites have been updated, reflecting recent changes made by the World Health Organization (WHO) to the yellow fever vaccine requirements and recommendations for 2020. The requirements and recommendations are updated annually following consultation between the WHO and state parties, who are asked to confirm or update their requirements for international travellers. The changes include:

  • the removal of a country requirement for an International Certificate of Vaccine Prophylaxis (ICVP)
  • the addition of a country requirement for an ICVP where a requirement did not previously exist
  • changes relating to transit through a yellow fever endemic country
  • changes to the minimum age at which an ICVP is required

Travellers are asked to refer to individual country pages for full details of their yellow fever vaccine and certificate requirements.
