yellow fever certificate in Mali

when i applied for my Mali visa there was no mention of necessity of yellow fever certificate. however, some web sites, including official ones, say it is a necessary requirement to have one in order to enter Mali. where is it actually checked (if at all)? what happens if i don't have one (and i don't)? do you reckon there's a chance to get the injection in Morocco? i am travelling overland Morocco-Mauritania-Mali.

When I arrived at Bamako airport a couple of weeks ago I was asked for the certificate, but by the time I had stepped aside to look for it, the official's attention had gone elsewhere and I wandered off - he didn't follow me even though I was stood nearby at the luggage carousel for ages.

While you aren't coming in at the airport and might meet a more industrious official, at least this shows that it isn't something which all officials have been instructed to make their top priority.

picked up two Mali visas 20 mins ago (Mali embassy in Dakar) and no one asked for the yellow fever certificate.

Visas cost us 22 thousand each- 7,500 for visas and other admin charges make up the rest.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
