Does anyone know if there are any vaccination requirements for entrance into and temporary/ permanent residence in South Africa?<br>
Where is a good place to fin the info? There was a line on the temporary residence app. but I wasn't clear on what it meant.<br>
Looking at disease incidence I'm pretty comfortable being there unvaxxed, just wanting to check if it's possible to enter and stay with adults and children.

Various countries - if you're coming from an infected area<br><br><b>Meningococcal vaccine</b> is required by Saudi Arabia only for pilgrims visiting Mecca for the Hajj (annual pilgrimage) or for the Umrah.

The only thing I'd be concerned about is re-entry to the US. They may have some requirements if you're comign frm certain places. I really have no idea, I just would hate for you to go that far and then have t immunize before coming home again!

If we go it'd be for 3 + years, so I'm not wondering about that as much, yet. Who knows what the US will 'require' by then?<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

There are no immunization requirements for entry to the U.S.

I would probably get in touch with the SA Embassy for clarification because I think there can sometimes be a difference between what is required for short term travel as opposed to what might be required for residency.
