Do I have to secure a tourist visa prior to arrival?
US passport holders are required to have a visa prior to arrival into Russia, Turkey, Kenya, India, and Vietnam.
Your A&K Travel Consultant or travel professional will be able to provide you with further details regarding visa requirements. If you are not a citizen of the United States, your entry requirements may vary. Please contact the nearest diplomatic or consular office of the country to be visited and obtain the specific requirements for entry.
What vaccine(s) do I need?
A yellow fever vaccination is required to enter Botswana, Kenya, Jordan, Vietnam, South Africa, and India only if you are arriving from or have transited through a yellow-fever endemic area in South America or Africa. The CDC provides a current list of all affected countries. If vaccination for yellow fever is necessary, you must carry an International Certificate of Vaccination provided by your physician; without it, you may be denied entry. If your physician advises against receiving the vaccination because of your personal medical history, he or she can provide you with the necessary documentation for the country(ies) that you are visiting. We suggest that you see a healthcare provider at least 4-6 weeks before your trip to allow time for any vaccinations or treatments to take effect.
It is a good idea to read up on any health issues or concerns related to your destination. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offers current health information; it can be reached at 800-232-4636 or online at wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel.
