Question and Answer
Promptly and conscientiously
Wanting to know what sort of vaccinations we require before travelling to Vietnam and is it mandatory? I already have a yellow fever vaccination so was wondering if that is enough.
Thank you very much
Dear Fatima Janoowalla,
Thank you for contacting us.
You are recommended to ask your doctor's advice for some necessary inoculations which would be helpful in Southeast Asia countries in the rainy season. With some specific drugs, you should prepare in advance. Otherwise, you can buy in Vietnam when needed.
If you wish to bring them with you, there are two ways to be accepted at Vietnam customs' check point:
1. Your medicine is approved by Vietnam Ministry of Health's Pharmaceutical Management Department to be imported to Vietnam with exact the names, the quality and quantity as stated.
2. Your medicine is well recognized and approved by international health organizations to be imported to another country with exact the names, the quality and quantity as stated.
From your countries and the countries that you transit, please double check with the customs from each country.
We hope that you are satisfied with this answer. Should you need further support, feel free to contact us.
Many thanks and best regards,
