Certificate Requirements

If you are entering Saudi Arabia from a country with a risk of yellow fever transmission, you may require a yellow fever certificate. The same applies if you change flights at the airport of a yellow fever risk country. There is no risk of yellow fever in Saudi Arabia.

Proof of the meningitis ACWY vaccination is required for visa purposes for Hajj and Umrah pilgrims, and seasonal workers.

If you are travelling from a country where there is a risk of contracting polio, then you will also need to provide proof that you have received a dose of the oral polio vaccine or inactivated poliovirus vaccine within the last 12 months, but at least 4 weeks before travelling to Saudi Arabia. Travellers from these countries will also be given a dose of the oral polio vaccination on arrival in Saudi Arabia, regardless of their vaccination status.

Why do I need a consultation?

It is difficult to say which vaccines you need without asking a medical professional. Your itinerary, your medical history and the activities you have planned all affect which vaccinations you need. It is important that a trained travel nurse or pharmacist checks what you need.

Exactly the travel vaccinations you need - no more, no less.

During your consultation, our nurse or pharmacist will talk you through the health risks at your travel destinations to check which vaccines you need. If a vaccine is not essential, we will explain your options so you can decide whether you would like to have it.

Malaria

Malaria is a serious and sometimes fatal disease transmitted by mosquitoes. You cannot be vaccinated against malaria.

Malaria Precautions

There is low-to-no risk of malaria in Saudi Arabia. However, travellers should still be aware of the risk and practise insect bite avoidance, such as using insect repellent and sleeping under mosquito nets. However, antimalarials may be advised in exceptional circumstances for some travellers to low risk areas - if you think you may be at higher risk, speak to our in-store nurses or pharmacists.
