 Health requirements

No vaccinations are required except for yellow fever if you are coming from an area where the disease is present. However, visitors should to have up-to-date inoculations against polio, meningitis, tuberculosis, TABT (typhoid, paratyphoid A&B and tetanus), hepatitis A&B, and Japanese encephalitis. Malaria is present in most of the region and it is advisable to take precautions especially if traveling off the beaten track. Medical facilities are rather limited in all countries and it is essential to take out a good medical insurance policy before traveling in case evacuation is needed.

Although international medical centers are available in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh city but it can be expensive for emergency care. So, health and emergency medical insurance prior to travel in Vietnam is highly recommended for foreigners.
