Travel Health

There are no particular health risks associated with travel to Liechtenstein and no vaccinations are required. Travellers are always advised to be up to date on vaccinations for MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) and tetanus-diphtheria. Long-term travellers spending time in forested areas should consider a vaccination for tick-borne encephalitis. High quality medical care is widely available but can prove expensive. Comprehensive travel insurance is recommended.

Local Customs

Travellers to Liechtenstein should expect to find a prosperous, highly industrialised society, that is of a piece with those found in the rest of Western Europe. One thing to bear in mind might be that Liechtensteinian women were only given the right to vote in 1984, and outmoded and sexist attitudes may still prevail among older members of society. Generally speaking though, Liechtenstein is a modern country with a well-educated and flourishing population that encourage tourism and are friendly to visitors.

Duty Free

Travellers to Liechtenstein may import the following goods without paying custom duty: 400 cigarettes/50 cigars/250g tobacco, 750ml liquor, 50ml perfume and 250ml eau de toilette. Cameras must be declared on arrival, and may be accompanied by a reasonable amount of film.
