Note: Vacsera's Yellow Fever vaccine certificate is no longer easily accepted by Egyptian authorities when leaving or entering Egypt. Make sure to get the Egyptian Ministry of Health's vaccination.


It is important to take anti-malarial pills before, during and after travel to many African and Asian countries. The Egyptian Ministry of Health (main building in Maglis Sha'ab St) provides travelers to certain countries free anti-malarials. The Ministry requires, however, proof of travel in order to provide the pills free of charge. Proof is provided in the form of a stamped visa in your passport to a certain malaria-affected country or a return ticket. The Egyptian Ministry of Health provides Mefloquine, which is taken once weekly, starting one to two weeks before the trip, and continuing a month after the trip. Mefloquine does come with some difficult side effects, so be sure to check what they are before taking the pills to know what to expect. Alternatively, you can buy other anti-malarials from your local pharmacy, but they are quite expensive.
