A message to those planning a Kenya Safari, from the Kenya Ministry of Health:

After a confusing statement about Yellow Fever regulations in Kenya was issued by ATTA on 16th July followed by many worried emails, we feel it is important to share with you the latest official statement from the Kenya Ministry of Health:

Only passengers arriving in Kenya from any country with risk of yellow fever transmission are required to posses a valid vaccination certificate for yellow fever. 

This means that if your clients are travelling from a non-endemic country directly to Kenya and back home (i.e. London – Nairobi – London), they will not require a yellow fever certificate. 

Those clients leaving Kenya and continuing their travels to Tanzania (including Zanzibar) South Africa or Rwanda (and possibly other African countries, even if only for a transit) will need a yellow fever certificate to enter those countries. 

Please feel free to contact us to download the official statement by Kenya’s Ministry of Health, or for any other questions regarding African Safaris Tours.
