I suppose it depends on what diseases you might have been exposed to in Europe ;=) We wouldn't want you to bring any nefarious ailments down under :-)

Well - there is quite a list you would need to be vaccinated both for and against:

1. inabilitytounderstandaussierules disease

2. donttakeoffenceatuseofthefword disease

3. implanttheabilitytotakeajokeonyourself virus

Cost would be negligible...a smile costs nothing :-)

Hi Marat

Vaccinations are not required unless you have come from or visited a yellow fever infected country or zone within 6days prior to arrival.

Travel Insurance is a must and the only vaccination you may like to consider/check you are up to date with is Tetanus.(but it is not a requirement to enter Aust)
