Yes,you do need it as you could be refused entry otherwise. Sounds daft but shop around for the jab as the price varies from surgery to surgery-we got ours for about £45. Cant tell you what the town is like as Princess cancelled the port of call at the last minute due to worries about safety!What a waste of money!

The travel sites are correct, if you intend to return you need the jab. You also need to get it sorted quickly as it shoul dbe done six weeks before you travel. If you don't have the jab, no t only might you be refused entry to Barbados & USA, you might invalidate your travel insurance. They don't need much excuse!

Technically Cartagena is in the yellow fever zone but the risk on the coast is low. We had it earlier this year for a visit there and it cost £50 each at our surgery. We visited Jamaica and USA after and were never asked to see the certificate. However most countries insist on it after visiting the yellow fever zone. Its valid for 10 years so we did not want to risk our health.

Visited Cartagena, Columbia as part of world cruise 2years ago. Then we went on to US. Never asked for a certificate at all. Dont know about Barbados. Did not have the jab. Cartagena is a nice, clean, tourist, coastal resort. M Smith, lancashire 07/01/09 20.00 to a question by cruiselover.
