Adults traveling to South Africa from a yellow fever endemic area, such as Argentinians, Brazilians, Colombians, Paraguayans and Venezuelans, among others, will be required to present the international yellow fever vaccination certificate upon entering the country. The same applies to passengers with passports of other nationalities but residing in these countries. For more information visit the Consular Section.
All persons arriving in South Africa from a Yellow Fever endemic area (including transit passengers) must present the International Certificate of Vaccination or an exemption certificate. It is recommended that the required vaccinations be administered four to six weeks prior to travel to South Africa (a yellow fever vaccination certificate is valid only 10 days after vaccination and has lifetime coverage).
Omicron, the terror of Covid vaccines
Uruguay will allocate 200,000 doses of the US Pfizer vaccine to foreign tourists as from December 1, date on which they will be able to get an appointment for its administration, announced this Friday the Secretary of the Presidency, Álvaro Delgado.
At a press conference held at the Executive Tower, headquarters of the Uruguayan Government, together with the Minister of Tourism, Tabaré Viera, Delgado explained that the availability of vaccines for non-residents was opened when the Executive of Luis Lacalle Pou (center-right) guaranteed the necessary amount for the country’s citizens.
A maximum of 4 visitors per household is advised and teleworking is encouraged during full working hours. The measures will come into force in the early hours of Sunday morning and will be applied until December 18, although the Executive will announce earlier whether the measures will be lifted or maintained or reinforced during Christmas, based on the epidemiological situation.
The Ministry of Health has reported 9,912 new infections on this day, an increase compared to Thursday, when it recorded 9,258 positives, a figure not seen since the beginning of September.

Complimenten aan @ggdkennemerland voor het adequate handelen. De reizigers met een positieve testuitslag gaan met hun reisgenoten naar een quarantainehotel, overige passagiers in thuisquarantaine. Zaak is nu om snel te onderzoeken of het om de Omicron-variant gaat. https://t.co/rMpChjGU06- Hugo de Jonge (@hugodejonge) November 26, 2021
