1: A yellow fever vaccination certificate is required from travellers coming from infected areas.

2: Following WHO guidelines issued in 1973, a cholera vaccination certificate is not a condition of entry to Syria. Up-to-date advice should be sought before deciding whether precautions should include vaccination, as medical opinion is divided over its effectiveness. See the Health section.

3: Mains water is normally chlorinated and relatively safe. Bottled water is available and is advised for the first few weeks of the stay. Drinking water outside main cities and towns is likely to be contaminated and sterilization is considered essential. Milk is unpasteurised and should be boiled. Powdered or tinned milk is available and is advised but make sure that it is reconstituted with pure water. Only eat well-cooked meat and fish, preferably served hot. Vegetables should be cooked and fruit peeled.

Health care: Health insurance is recommended. There is no reciprocal health agreement with the UK. There are about 200 hospitals (12,000 beds) and 16,000 doctors. Medical care is provided free of charge to those who cannot afford to pay. For more information, see the Health section.
