  • Mozambique is a Malaria area and it is therefore recommended that you take precautions before your trip.
  • It is highly recommended that you consult your doctor before your trip and it would be wise to take precautions against diseases such as hepatitis, malaria, tetanus, as well as yellow fever.
  • If you do not feel well when you have returned from your Mozambican trip, it is important to notify your doctor that you have been in Mozambique with possible exposure to these diseases as soon as possible.
  • In the case of Malaria, the incubation period (time between initial infection and showing symptoms) differs but usually symptoms start between nine and 40 days (some types may even take ten months before symptoms start).
