Zika Travel Information | Travelers' Health | CDC

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. CDC twenty four seven. Saving Lives, Protecting People

CDC has Zika travel notices posted for 48 destinations. If you are traveling to an area with Zika, be sure to follow CDC recommendations to stay healthy and safe. All travelers to areas with Zika should prevent mosquito bites. Zika can also be spread by a man to his sex partners, so travelers should use condoms if they have sex.
Because Zika during pregnancy can cause serious birth defects, pregnant women should not travel to areas with Zika. Couples who are trying to become pregnant should talk to their doctor about their plans and see CDC guidance for how long you should wait to get pregnant after travel to an area with Zika.

Countries with Endemic Zika

Some countries in Africa, the Pacific Islands, and Asia have reported Zika in the past and may continue to occasionally report new cases. The risk to travelers in these endemiccountries is likely much lower than it is in countries with Zika epidemics (see Q&A: Zika Risk in Countries with Endemic Zika). Because Zika infection in a pregnant woman causes severe birth defects, pregnant women should consult with their health care provider and, if they decide to travel, strictly follow steps to prevent mosquito bites. Travel notices have not been issued for these destinations but would be considered if the number of cases rises to the level of an outbreak.
