As you plan your trip to Nepal, it is important to take precautions to avoid illness while travelling. We advise visiting the CDC or NHS website to learn more about updated vaccines and medicines recommended for Nepal. There are dengue fever and malaria fever in Nepal, so remember to bring antimalarial drugs and take them before, during, and after travel. To protect yourself, it is recommended to bring a good insect repellent. In the mountain areas of Nepal, there are ticks that cause tick-borne diseases like tick-borne Japanese encephalitis. So please be careful when visiting the mountains.
Some travel-related vaccines may be recommended for all travellers. Some vaccines may be recommended for travellers who are staying longer in Nepal (Nepal is a developing country and many diseases and conditions are not well-controlled). There are no mandatory vaccines required for entry into Nepal; however, hepatitis A vaccine is advised. Vaccines against diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough), measles, mumps, and tetanus are also recommended. In addition, an oral typhoid vaccine is also recommended for most travellers even if they claim to never eat street foods or drink beverages directly from the water sources.
