I’m travelling to Australia, do I need a yellow fever vaccine?

Page last updated 31 January 2022

Anyone aged 12 months or older who has stayed overnight or longer in a declared yellow fever infected country within 6 days prior to arrival in Australia, is required to show evidence of yellow fever vaccination. This is documented on an approved yellow fever vaccination certificate.  People unable to provide a certificate will still be permitted to enter Australia.

For further information regarding the yellow fever vaccination, speak with your healthcare professional.
