Notes vaccinations

[1] A vaccination certificate against yellow fever is required for all travelers who want to enter within 6 days of staying in the infected areas designated by the WHO and who are over one year old. Excluded are travelers who have not left the transit area in the infected areas and transit travelers who do not leave the airport in Niue. [2] The drinking water is obtained from springs and rainwater and is considered harmless. Stomach upset and diarrhea may occur. Milk is pasteurized and, like dairy products, meat, poultry, fruit and vegetables, it is safe to consume.

Other risks

Dengue fever, transmitted by mosquitoes, occurs. An effective insect repellent is recommended. Hepatitis A and hepatitis B occur. A hepatitis A vaccination is generally recommended. Vaccination against hepatitis B should be given during longer stays and close contact with the local population, as well as for children and young people in general. UV radiation is very high and can damage the skin. Sun protection through skin-covering clothing and sunscreen (SPF > 20) is therefore absolutely necessary.
