Health

No vaccination is required on entry into Vanuatu. However, it is recommended to take malaria prophylaxis – especially if travelling outside Efate – and to safeguard against the dengue carrying mosquito (Aedes aegypti) insofar as possible.

Although water from the tap is drinkable in Port Vila, when travelling around the islands it is recommended to drink water that has been boiled, or take water purification tablets (Hydroclonazone, Micropur…) with you or, better yet, bottles of mineral water.

Vanuatu does not have dangerous animals and insects.
