Australia Health Guide

At Runway, we're looking to empower the traveler with information, resources and access to prescription travel medication. Runway Health Guides are compiled from government sources, local authorities and vetted by a team of licensed travel physicians. From vaccine requirements to medication recommendations, here’s everything you need to know.

Vaccine Entry Requirements for Australia

Yellow Fever


If traveling directly from the US, Australia does not require any vaccines to enter.

If your itinerary includes a visit to or a 12+ hour layover in another country before arrival in Australia, a Yellow Fever vaccine and proof of vaccination may be required to enter. This requirement excludes the Galapagos and Ecuador. To see if you are stopping in a Yellow Fever Endemic country before arrival, click here.

Countries with Risk of Yellow Fever Transmission:

African Continent: Angola, Benin, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Republic of Cono, Cote d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia, Gabon, The Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Kenya, Liberia, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, Sudan, Togo, Uganda 

South & Central America: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, Trinidad and Tobago, Venezuela

The CDC recommends booking 4-6 weeks in advance, as proof of vaccination (Yellow Book) is only valid 10 days after you receive the vaccine.

when traveling from the US to Australia

Vaccines

Rabies

may be considered if planning activities that involve direct contact with animals or wildlife – ie. wild camping, cave exploring, or fieldwork in rural areas. As a rule, we recommend avoiding interaction with animals – even domestic pets may carry diseases.

Medications

Traveler’s Diarrhea Antibiotics

to alleviate an intestinal infection resulting from eating or drinking contaminated food or water. It is the most common travel-related illness and can occur anywhere, but the highest-risk destinations are in Asia, Africa, Mexico, Central and South America, and the Middle East

Motion Sickness Medication

will ensure your travels by air, land or sea are more enjoyable without nausea and dizziness tagging along.

Sleep Aids

may be a great addition to your packing list if you struggle with jet lag or sleeplessness due to travel stress or time zone changes.
