Health Care

Prescribed medicines must be paid for. There is a reciprocal health agreement with the UK. Health insurance with emergency repatriation is strongly recommended for all nationals (including UK nationals).

Food and Drink

Mains water is normally chlorinated and, whilst relatively safe, may cause mild abdominal upsets. Bottled water is available and is advised for the first few weeks of the stay. Milk is pasteurised and dairy products are safe for consumption. Local meat, poultry, seafood, fruit and vegetables are generally considered safe to eat.

Other Risks

Vaccination against hepatitis B and tuberculosis is sometimes advised.
