Taiwan Travel Health Advice
According to Taiwan health regulations, travellers arriving from areas infected with yellow fever must carry vaccination certificates. Also, travellers are advised to have up-to-date vaccines for hepatitis A and typhoid, while long-term travellers should be inoculated against Japanese encephalitis.
Due to recent outbreaks of dengue fever, insect repellents and other measures to prevent mosquito bites are recommended for those travelling to the southern part of the island. Visitors should only drink bottled water and should be wary of potential food poisoning. Taiwan's medical facilities are first-class, but health insurance is recommended for travellers.
