Zika virus: Latest travel health advice

Zika virus, along with other mosquito-transmitted diseases, such as malaria, dengue and chikungunya, are transmitted by mosquitoes that live in warmer climates. To determine if the area you are travelling to is a country or area with risk of Zika virus or a country or area with a Zika virus outbreak:

  • Consult the Travel Advice and Advisories page, and select your destination. Information on diseases spread by insects, such as Zika virus, is found under the 'Health' tab.
  • Consult a health care professional or visit a travel health clinic at least 6 weeks before you travel.
