Kenya checking Yellow Fevers Certificates
Thursday, March 26th 2009
It appears that Health officials in Nairobi have stepped up efforts to check for compliance by arriving passengers for the Yellow Fever vaccination certificates. These certificates are required not only for passengers coming from countries with risk of yellow fever transmission, but also those who may have transited through such countries.
Whereas the Yellow Fever certificate requirement is not new, there may have been some laxity in carrying out these checks in the past. Incoming passengers who do not have the Certificate and are required to have it will be vaccinated at the airport if they wish to enter the country. The cost of the vaccination is KSh 1,000.
Travellers from the following Countries MUST have the certificate when coming into Kenya:
Angola, Benin, Bolivia, Brazil, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Central Africa Republic, Colombia, Congo, Code d'Ivoire, Ecuador, Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia, French Guyana, Gabon, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guyana, Liberia, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Senegal, Somali, Sudan, Togo, Uganda, United Republic of Tanzania, Venezuela, Rwanda.
The above countries include all countries in West Africa, Central and East Africa and South America.
