Before taking a trip abroad, travellers are advised to organise a consultation at a medical centre that has an International Health Department or a Travel Health Service. This consultation should be held 4-6 weeks before the start of the trip.
At the consultation, the health risks will be evaluated in a personalised way, taking into account the destination, the duration and the type of trip, as well as the personal conditions of the person travelling. The necessary health and preventative recommendations will be given and may include vaccination, especially when travelling to destinations with greater health risks, such as those with an increased risk of malaria or other tropical diseases.
Many risks apply to all travellers who go to the tropics, regardless of the specific destination, for example traffic accidents, or diseases transmitted by mosquitoes or contaminated foods.
All travellers are advised to take out health insurance that covers all eventualities of the trip, and that also covers infection by COVID-19. In addition, you should make sure that the policy covers the costs of repatriation.
The information included on this website should be used to obtain general information on the risks to health, and general information for your trip. It should not substitute a consultation with a medical professional under any circumstances.
