People aged 1 year or over must have an International certificate of vaccination or prophylaxis if they have stayed overnight or longer in a declared yellow fever–infected country within 6 days before arriving in (or returning to) Australia.

Healthcare professionals provide this certificate at the time a person is vaccinated against yellow fever. The certificate is valid for the duration of the life of the person and begins 10 days after vaccination.

Yellow fever vaccine must be given by an approved yellow fever vaccination centre. Centres can charge a range of fees for a consultation and the yellow fever vaccine.
