Safety and Security Issues:


Keep an eye on the World Health Organisation website to check for any health alerts in the countries you are planning to visit so you can prepare you and your crew accordingly. It may be that certain vaccinations are required and certificates carried, or that restrictions are in place at ports of entry if coming from a country with an epidemic and further health paperwork needs to be carried by all crew. All countries on Noonsite have a useful health section for reference.
