Yemen Travel Health Advice

Malaria medication is recommended for travel to all parts of Yemen except Sana'a and areas above 2,000 metres (6,561ft) altitude. A yellow fever vaccination certificate is required for all travellers arriving from infected areas. Vaccinations are recommended for hepatitis A, hepatitis B and typhoid, and travellers should be up to date on their vaccinations for MMR (measles, mumps, rubella), polio and tetanus-diphtheria.

Medical and health care facilities are generally good in Sana'a and Aden, but virtually non-existent outside of the big cities. Comprehensive medical travel insurance, with provision for emergency repatriation, is strongly advised.
