Last updated: June 15th, 2014 by admin
If you are a visitor to Australia from Germany or you are a recent migrant, you may have had several vaccinations previously in Germany. Your children may also have had vaccinations which were considered important in Germany or were part of the German health system or you have made it an important aspect of your family’s health to make sure you have up to date vaccinations.
Australia is a healthy country and you do not need a vaccination certificate to come here as a visitor and the only exception is if you have been to an African or South American country at some stage. If you have, you may be asked to show a yellow fever vaccination certificate when you enter the country, In fact, when you enter Australia you will be asked to confirm whether you have spent any time in a yellow fever prone country. If you have, you will almost certainly be asked to show a vaccination certificate. If this certificate has been issued in any other language other than English, then it may be sensible to get a German NAATI translator to get them translated to show to a quarantine official at the border.
If you are coming to live in Australia you may not need any other vaccination certificates officially, but you may want to get your vaccinations updated at some stage. A doctor here may want to be sure what sort of vaccinations you have had before. It is important not to have certain vaccinations too often and also to keep them up to date. You can get your vaccination certificates translated by an immigration translator Sydney if that is where you are likely to spend any time or a German NAATI translator who will make sure that any of the important documents you have in German, including vaccination certificates, are translated into English so that there is no misunderstanding.
