Yemen: Various travel information

German, Austrian and Swiss nationals need a visa to enter Yemen. The German child ID must have a photo. The entry of a child in a parent's passport is sufficient for entry. For stays in Yemen longer than four weeks, an exit visa is required, which must be applied for at least seven days before departure at the "Immigration Authority."

Israeli entry stamps in the passport can lead to considerable difficulties.

Infectious Diseases

The following infectious diseases are to be expected in Yemen, which do not occur or are less common in Germany, Austria or Switzerland:

  • Malaria, there is a year-round risk of infection in the country. The capital Sana'a is excluded. Over 90% of the infections occur with the very dangerous malaria tropica, the rest with malaria tertiana. There is no risk of malaria infection in areas above 2,000 m
  • Amoebic dysentery
  • Bacterial agitation
  • Schistosomiasis
  • Cholera, an infection risk only exists for travelers who come into contact with polluted water or contaminated food
  • Intestinal infections from contaminated food or water, including amoeba, lamblia, salmonella, shigella and worm infestation, as well as all kinds of viruses and bacteria
  • Filariasis
  • Hepatitis A and B, an infection with hepatitis B, is only possible in people who can come into contact with blood or those who seek sexual contact.
  • Kala Azar disease
  • Lambliasis
  • Leishmaniasis Disease
  • Polio, polio
  • rabies
  • Typhoid fever, an infection risk only exists for travelers who come into contact with polluted water or contaminated food

Vaccination recommendations When traveling to Yemen, the same vaccinations are recommended as in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

  • Cholera, but only among travelers who can come into contact with polluted water or contaminated food
  • Diphtheria, a vaccination against diphtheria should always exist, also in the home country
  • Hepatitis A and B, vaccination against hepatitis B, is only required for people who may come into contact with blood or who are looking for sexual contact.
  • Polio, polio, a vaccination against polio should always exist, also in the home country
  • Tetanus, a vaccination against tetanus, should always exist, also in the home country
  • Typhoid, but only in travelers who may come into contact with polluted water or contaminated food

Compulsory vaccination

For all persons older than one year and coming from a yellow fever infection area designated by the WHO, there is a compulsory vaccination against an illness with yellow fever. Since the country itself is one of the yellow fever infection areas designated by the WHO, vaccination is strongly recommended.

Yellow fever vaccination for children

In most of the countries where yellow fever vaccination is mandatory, this also applies to children over 1 year of age, in some countries even from 6 months. It should be noted that

vaccination against yellow fever had a number of side effects, such as encephalitis. Around two thirds of those affected were children under 6 months. Therefore, under no circumstances should children under this age be vaccinated. But children under one year of age should also not be vaccinated if possible. If in doubt, yellow fever infection areas must then be avoided.

Any vaccination against yellow fever may only be carried out in specially authorized yellow fever vaccination centers!

Malaria prophylaxis

When traveling in the country, it is strongly advised to undergo malaria prophylaxis. If the side effects seem questionable to you, you should at least have a "stand-by preparation" with you.
