I was born abroad and I’m returning to my native country to visit my family. Do I really need a consultation?

Even if it’s true that, as a child, you were exposed to infectious diseases to which you may have developed a certain immunity, if you’ve been in Canada for several years, this immunity may have substantially decreased, based on the disease. Even though you may have lived overseas in the past, you may no longer be immune to many diseases such as malaria and traveller’s diarrhea. 

In addition, staying with your family in a foreign country may present certain greater risks than staying in a hotel.

It’s therefore strongly recommended that you go for a consultation when you’re planning this type of trip.
