Please be urgently advised that all passengers traveling between South Africa and Zambia (both directions) with effect from 1st July 2011 will be required to have a yellow fever vaccination certificate. This is due to the World Health Organizations recent revision of the Yellow Fever recommendations for Africa.

NOTE: A yellow fever vaccination needs to be done no less than 10 days prior to travelling.

Please also be aware that all transit passengers between the two destinations, irrespective of the time period in transit, will also require proof of yellow fever vaccination.
