New Yellow Fever card for Ghanaian and South African travellers

The Federal Government of Nigeria through its health ministry has announced that the issuance of a new yellow fever card has commenced and the replacement would take full effect on the 1st of October, 2013.

Passengers traveling to a country requiring a yellow fever vaccination card need to obtain the new standardized even if they have a still valid old style Nigerian issued on. Especially for Accra and Johannesburg! Passengers from now on will not be accepted for profiling without the complete travel documents including the YFC to avoid extensive delays at the gate waiting for passengers to come from Port Health.
