YELLOW FEVER VACCINATION:
Please take note that the South African authorities at airports or other points of entry, require overseas visitors coming from countries infected with yellow fever ( including South America & Central Africa ) to have a valid yellow fever vaccination certificate . This also applies to travellers who have been to these countries in transit – for example if you fly from USA via South America & on to South Africa . It is not possible to obtain a yellow fever vaccination on arrival in South Africa . The certificate should be dated at least 10 days prior to arrival here & is valid for 10 years. This is a serious warning & travellers will be refused entry to South Africa if they do not comply.
