India is one of the most beautiful countries in the world and is also one of the most overwhelming to visit!

Regardless of whether you are on a business trip to Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore or Hyderabad or traveling around Rajasthan, hiking the Himalayas or taking a boat trip on the back waters Kerala, travellers should seek pre-travel advice to ensure they stay healthy whilst abroad.

It is recommended that all travellers are up to date with their routine immunisations.

All travellers should ensure that they have received a vaccination against diphtheria, tetanus and polio in the last 10 years. All travellers are advised to ensure they have been vaccinated against Hepatitis A and Typhoid.

There is no risk of Yellow Fever in India, however proof of vaccination will be required if entering from a country that has a risk of Yellow Fever. The certificate requirements regarding Yellow Fever are particular and therefore travellers should seek advice on this before travel.

There may be a need for additional immunisations. Depending on the nature of the trip, destinations visited, duration of travel and activities, other vaccinations could be considered. These include:-

There is risk of malaria in Assam, Orissa and in areas surrounding the Mahanadi River. Antimalarial medication is advised for these regions. All other regions of India have low/no risk of malaria, and therefore antimalarial medication will not be needed for the majority of travellers.

Some parts of the country are at altitude, and considerations to prevent acute mountain sickness should be sought if visiting areas of high altitude, Prevention against insect bites is essential.

Precautions against food and water borne illnesses should be sought.
