Zika Virus Update

The Foreign Office has updated its travel advice for a number of countries in Central and South America, some Caribbean islands and Cape Verde and Samoa to reflect the health advice of The National Travel Health Network and Centre (NaTHNaC) in relation to the Zika Virus.

NaTHNaC advises if you are pregnant you should consider avoiding travel to areas where ZIKV outbreaks are currently reported. If travel is unavoidable, you should take scrupulous insect bite avoidance measures, both during daytime and night time hours. Remember to inform your obstetrician or midwife if you have recently travelled to a country where ZIKV is known to occur.

If you are planning to become pregnant, you should discuss your travel plans with your healthcare provider to assess your risk of infection with ZIKV and receive advice on mosquito bite avoidance measures.

ABTA would recommend that pregnant women due to travel to any of the destinations affected should seek medical advice from their GP and where it is necessary to change or cancel their holiday arrangements in light of the NaTHNaC advice request that their GP provides them with medical certificate in order to assist with them with any possible  insurance claim.

Visit the FCO website and select your destination country for the latest travel advice.

 

The countries currently listed on the World Health Organisation website where Zika virus transmission has been reported in the Americas Region together with links to the FCO travel advice are as follows.  

The other countries advised by NaTHNaC where Zika virus transmission has been reported together with links to the FCO travel advice are as follows:
