As you prepare for your holiday to Nepal, it’s vital to take certain health precautions to help prevent illnesses during your travel. We recommend checking the CDC or NHS website to learn about the latest vaccines and medications recommended for Nepal. Dengue fever and malaria fever are prevalent in Nepal during the monsoon season, so if you are traveling during these months, then we recommend that you bring antimalarial drugs and take them before, during, and after travel. To avoid insect bites, it is advisable to carry high-quality insect repellent. When visiting the mountain regions of Nepal, beware of ticks that transmit tick-borne diseases such as tick-borne Japanese encephalitis.
Although no mandatory vaccines are required for entry into Nepal, it is recommended to get the hepatitis A vaccine. Vaccinations for diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough), measles, mumps, and tetanus are also recommended.
