Key changes to look out for in the 2018 include:

  • Changes relating to transit through a risk country
  • Changes to lower age at which an ICVP is required for some countries
  • Inclusion or exclusion of detail relating to travellers arriving from, or departing to, areas considered to be at risk of yellow fever transmission

NaTHNaC is currently updating the country information changes to reflect these recommendations and requirements.
