Staying healthy in Guinea: Here's what you need to know

Guinea's healthcare system is still developing, and access to modern medical facilities can be limited, especially in rural or remote areas. Here's what travelers should know.

Make sure to stay updated on routine vaccines

  • For entry and to apply for the Guinea eVisa, it's mandatory to show a vaccination certificate for Yellow Fever when coming from a country with a high transmission risk.

  • It's a good idea to get vaccinated for hepatitis A and B, rabies, polio, and typhoid.

  • Depending on your travel plans, you might also consider additional immunization for mosquito-borne diseases, such as malaria.

  • Keep updated with Guinea's COVID-19 requirements, such as quarantine, testing, or vaccine certificates, through your airline or the Guinea government website.

Medical facilities

  • Compile a list of nearby hospitals and doctors in case of emergencies, particularly when traveling to remote areas or engaging with animals or large groups of people.

  • Given the limited availability of pharmacies and over-the-counter medicines, consider bringing your supply of common medicines, such as painkillers, a first aid kit, and more.

Health insurance

We'd always recommend taking out health insurance before traveling to any destination.

Contact your insurance provider before traveling to make sure you have the right level of coverage.

Other things to consider:

  • Trip cancellation, delay, and interruption benefits.

  • Medical expenses and medical evacuation benefits.

  • Baggage coverage.

Things to be aware of when visiting Guinea

Keep an extra eye on the following to keep healthy and safe during your trip to Guinea:

1. Food and water quality: To prevent stomach problems, stick to bottled water, avoid ice in drinks, wash fruit and vegetables well, and be careful with street food.

2. Mosquito-borne diseases: In some areas there's a higher risk of dengue, chikungunya, and Zika. Use insect repellent and wear long-sleeved clothing in those regions.

3. Traffic: Guinea has a high rate of road traffic accidents. Exercise caution when traveling on roads and consider local transportation options. Consider investing in private transportation.

  • Declare all medication: Report all medication for personal use to customs authorities.

  • Original packaging: Always keep medicines in original containers and transparent bags in your hand luggage.

  • Prescription or doctor's letter: Present the medical prescription issued by your doctor or other licensed healthcare professional in English.
