Angola Visa yellow fever certificate and travel information

Angola is grappling with a yellow fever outbreak, which has infected more than 355 people and killed 159 – the first epidemic of the disease to hit the country in 30 years.

Vaccination the key prevention measure

More than 5 million people have been vaccinated against yellow fever in this campaign. Vaccination is the single most important measure for preventing yellow fever. The vaccine is safe and affordable and a single dose provides life-long immunity against the disease.

Before travelling to Angola travellers should be vaccinated

Travellers to and from countries where yellow fever occurs should be vaccinated and should carry their certificate of vaccination when travelling – this may be inspected by border authorities on arrival. Here, a member of the vaccination team fills in a certificate for this woman and her children who have just been vaccinated.

WHO advice

WHO urges Members States especially those where the establishment of a local cycle of transmission is possible (i.e., where the Aedes mosquitoes are present) to strengthen the control of immunization status of travellers to all potentially endemic areas and the surveillance of potential YF cases.

In the context of an ongoing YF outbreak in Angola, special attention should also be placed on travellers returning from Angola and other potentially endemic areas. Travellers, particularly those arriving in Asia from Africa or Latin America should always have a certificate of YF vaccination. If there are medical grounds for not getting vaccinated, the International Health Regulations (2005) state that this must be certified by the appropriate authorities.

WHO does not recommend any restriction of travel and trade to Angola based on the current information available.
