Singapore vaccinations: which ones do you need?

Leaving for Singapore soon? Then it is wise to properly prepare for your trip. We recommend vaccinations for Singapore, although in most cases they are not mandatory. Which vaccinations you require is dependant on the duration of your stay in the smallest country in Southeast Asia.

The Republic of Singapore is an island city-state in Southeast Asia that consists of 63 islands and is separated from Malaysia and Indonesia by sea straits. Singapore has a tropical climate with temperatures that usually range between 25 and 30 degrees Celsius. Due to the humidity, it often feels warm and a bit clammy. If you wish to avoid the most heavy monsoon rains, then the best time to travel to Singapore is between February and September. Singapore has a lot to offer: in the old town you can gaze at beautifully preserved colonial buildings and along the banks of the Singapore River you can eat in one of the many authentic small restaurants. In Chinatown and Little India you imagine yourself elsewhere, and if you love shopping you will certainly enjoy the ultra-modern shopping malls Singapore offers.

Regardless of your travel itinerary for Singapore, you will always need to take into account the risk of (tropical) diseases and mosquitoes.
