Health & Safety

Health and wellbeing

Please be aware that your health can be at risk in Vietnam especially in rural areas, due to poor sanitation and lack of effective medical facilities. Make sure that you have travel insurance for your trip and travel with a full supply of any prescribed medicine you take. You should also consult your doctor or local travel clinic for the latest information and advice on travelling to Vietnam before departure.

If you have a medical condition or allergy which requires particular attention, carry a doctor’s letter with you that describes the nature of the condition and treatment needed.

Travel insurance (recommended)

Travel insurance is a cost effective way of protecting yourself and your equipment should any problems occur such as cancelled trips, delays, medical emergencies, baggage loss or damage.


Before travelling, please ensure you have adequate protection against disease. Contact your doctor for the latest medical advice on the vaccinations you need, no less than two months before your departure.
