Before departing for a foreign destination, a traveler must visit a healthcare provider and receive the required vaccinations, which the doctor must list on the form per the instructions and sign and date. The Yellow Card must then be kept with the traveler's passport as he or she travels, since it serves as a medical "passport" of sorts as proof of vaccination, including booster shots.
