What about health?

Indonesia is not an unhealthy country from a health point of view. Just follow a few precautionary tips before and during your stay. If no vaccination is required, we strongly advise you to be up-to-date in your usual vaccinations (tetanus, polio, diphtheria, hepatitis B and pertussis).

It is also recommended to be vaccinated against typhoid fever and viral hepatitis A and B depending on the conditions in which you travel. In addition, it is also recommended to provide treatment against malaria. According to the islands, the risk of malaria is more or less present:

  •  Papua, East Tenggara, Maluku Islands: the risk is present all year long 
  • Sumatra Islands, Jawa, Lombok, West Tengarra, Famous, Kalimantran: the risk is present in case of stay in rural areas; 
  • Bali Island and the city of Jakarta: no risk

In any case, bring light but long clothing, WHO-approved mosquito repellent and insecticide-treated mosquito nets. These methods will also protect you against the Dengue, present throughout the territory or the Japanese encephalitis, disease present only in Asia which is also transmitted by mosquitoes.

If you are traveling in rural areas, vaccination against this last disease may be necessary. Finally, Indonesia being a tropical country, it enjoys warm climate and the sun can sometimes hit hard. So it's always good to have a full screen tube and a sun hat in your luggage for a trip to Indonesia.
