As of Thursday, February 22, all travelers entering Senegal are now required to show proof of vaccination against yellow fever. According to health officials, all travelers without such certification will be immunized upon arrival.


Travelers to Senegal are advised to adhere to all entry requirements (including vaccination requirements), ensure that they are traveling with all necessary documentation, and contact their nearest Senegalese consulate or embassy for further information.


Symptoms of yellow fever – a mosquito-borne disease – generally appear within three to six days following infection and include fever, chills, muscle and back pain, vomiting, headaches, and, in more serious cases, hemorrhaging and organ failure. The vaccine provides life-long immunity.
