Once the insurance has been confirmed and paid for, a policy document will be issued by the insurer. It is important to read this document before beginning travel, so that any queries may be addressed to the insurer before departure.

To ensure this is done in a timely manner, one should consult a doctor or a specialized Travel Vaccination Clinic at least three weeks before departure to Tanzania, explain to your health practitioner about your upcoming trip to Tanzania and take all the necessary vaccinations or medications. It is essential that travelers to certain regions obtain Yellow Fever Vaccinations at least two weeks prior to their departure from the originating country. The certification evidence of the inoculation must be presented upon request and is valid for a period of up to ten years. Some of the travelers from the lower risk regions aren’t required to show the YF certification unless otherwise they’ve had more than 12 hours layover in a country categorized as a high YF risk region, however, you will need to carry it with you some transit countries might need it.
It is the duty of the party leader or individual to guarantee all group members are equipped with the necessary travel and health documents prior to their journey. All expenses resulting from the acquisition of these documents must be covered by the traveler.
