HEALTH AND WELL-BEING OF PARTICIPANTS POINTS OF CONCERN RELATED TO HEALTH
- Prior To Arrival in Malaysia (At country of Origin)
- A valid Yellow Fever vaccination certificate is required from all participants coming from/ through Yellow Fever Endemic areas/countries.
- The vaccination certificate is only valid if the vaccine is approved by WHO and administered at an approved Yellow Fever Vaccinating Centre.
- The period of validity of an international certificate of vaccination against Yellow Fever is 10 years, beginning 10 days after the date of vaccination. Thus participants must get their vaccination 10 days before departure.
- If a participant is revaccinated before the end of this period, the validity is extended for a further 10 years from the date of vaccination. If the revaccination is recorded on a new certificate, participants are advised to retain the old certificate for 10 days until the new certificate becomes valid.
- In accordance with article 68 of the International Health Regulation of the WHO, travellers without a valid Yellow Fever Vaccination certificate shall be quarantined upon arrival in Malaysia. This regulation, however, does not apply to children below the age of one year.
