Very helpful information @Julian. Hope mine is also of the most recent type. Had it renewed about 2010 so may be in luck

I've experienced first hand/witnessed officials in several African countries as well as airline check-in employees (in the US and Africa) insist that a YF shot is required in cases where I've read that it wasn't.  We carry the YF card on all trips to Africa whether the CDC website, airline website or (African) governments' websites state that it's needed or not - it just avoids hassles and shake-downs.

I always carry my certificate (and other inoculations records) plus a few spare passport photos for countries that may require a photo for the visa.

Wild Africa is in my blood. All life is sacred and interconnected. for the animals are fellow nations caught in the splendor and trevail of the earth.
