Niger Travel Health Advice

Malaria prophylaxis is recommended for all travellers in all areas of Niger. A yellow fever vaccination is required for all travellers arriving from countries with a risk of yellow fever transmission, and is recommended for all areas south of the Sahara Desert in Niger. A meningococcus vaccination is recommended for travel during the dry season, between November and June. Vaccinations are also recommended for hepatitis A, hepatitis B and typhoid. Those travellers who may be at risk of animal bites or may be coming into contact with bats should consider a rabies vaccination. It is generally advised that travellers be up to date on vaccinations for polio, MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) and tetanus-diphtheria.

Medical facilities are extremely limited in Niger and travellers should ensure that they have comprehensive travel and health insurance. All required medications should be brought along in their original packaging, accompanied by a signed and dated letter from a doctor detailing what each medicine is and why it is required.

Tap water should never be drunk in Niger unless it has been boiled, filtered or chemically disinfected. Travellers should be wary of food from street vendors, and should only eat cooked meals while they are still hot. Raw or undercooked meat and fish should not be eaten and fruit and vegetables should be cooked or peeled.
