Travelling Abroad?

What should I do before travelling abroad?

It is important to prepare your trip well in advance. Follow these general guidelines before getting ready to travel.

  • Visit your doctor, practice nurse or pharmacist at least 6-10 weeks before you travel abroad to check on immunisation requirements. If you are travelling for more than a month, see them earlier.
  • For malaria requirements again visit your GP, practice nurse or pharmacist who will help you sort out your required medication.
  • Obtain a first aid kit and any medication you might need - including enough prescription medication for the trip.
  • Read up about your chosen destination to learn about the culture, laws and customs.
  • Check that your passport is valid and does not expire before you return.
  • Check on visa requirements for your chosen destination.

If you are travelling abroad we recommend you have a look at the NHS fit for travel website where you can find all the latest information on required and recommended vaccinations, anti-malaria advice, tips for staying healthy whilst in a foreign country and much more. please see the banner below.
