St Helena Travel Health Advice
A yellow fever vaccination certificate is required from passengers arriving from an infected country. The island has a good standard of medical care, but costs can be high and travellers should be covered for medical evacuation for serious conditions. Travellers should bear in mind that there is no airport on the island and the only means of accessing the island is via the Royal Mail Ship RMS St Helena. Jamestown has a well-equipped hospital, but there is no National Health Service, so even British passport holders will be required to pay for medical aid, at reduced rates.
