Travel Essentials – Yellow Fever Certificate

A Yellow Fever Certificate is not just essential, but compulsory in some countries. You need to get one before heading off on any kind of adventurous travel.

Of course if you’re not a nomad or a spontaneous traveller then you may not need one if you already know the countries you are going to and whether they are at risk or not.
