PERSONAL ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

PASSPORT: Required

VISA: Required

HEALTH & IMMUNIZATION: Cholera Certificates are required only from travelers who are proceeding to countries requiring a certificate. Yellow Fever Vaccination Certificates are required for all travelers. The U.S. Public Health Service reports that a malaria risk exists throughout the country, therefore, an appropriate anti-malaria prophylactic is highly recommended. The U.S. Public Health Service also reports that a particularly high prevalence of penicillin resistant gonorrhea exists in Nigeria. Meningitis is epidemic in northern portions of the country from December to April; appropriate immunization is recommended. Aids is present in Nigeria and appropriate precautions must be taken to preclude sexual and blood/needle transmission.
