Countries with Endemic Zika

Some countries in Africa, the Pacific Islands, and Asia have reported Zika in the past and may continue to occasionally report new cases. The risk to travelers in these endemic countries is likely much lower than it is in countries with Zika epidemics (see Q&A: Zika Risk in Countries with Endemic Zika). Because Zika infection in a pregnant woman causes severe birth defects, pregnant women should consult with their health care provider and, if they decide to travel, strictly follow steps to prevent mosquito bites. Travel notices have not been issued for these destinations but would be considered if the number of cases rises to the level of an outbreak. Check this page for the most up-to-date information before you make travel plans.
