Health Requirements For Sri Lanka

Back to all travel tips

For travel to Sri Lanka it is essential that you are up to date with Typhoid, Tetanus, Polio and Hepatitis. Sri Lanka also has a risk of Malaria in some parts and if travelling in the northern state of Jaffna you will need to take anti-malaria precautions. For competitively priced Malarone visit who are an online pharmacy that offer online consultations. However as we are not trained to give specific health advice, we strongly recommend that you visit your GP surgery or a travel clinic for professional advice well in advance of your travel date. Some immunisations need to be given well in advance of departure, so seek advice at least 2 months before you depart. For further information MASTA operate travel clinics across the UK and provide a free travel
health brief on their website or get in touch with the Hospital for Tropical Diseases via their website

Please note if you are arriving from an area in the Yellow Fever zone (currently only South American & African countries) you will be required to show that you have been inoculated against the disease.
