Alor is a remote area, it is recommended to be up to date with vaccinations such as tetanus and hepatitis and to bring ample supply of any prescription medication you may need.
Like most of Indonesia Alor has some malaria, although cases in the developed areas are low. Most visitors choose precautions against bites rather than medication. Use repellent in the evening and at dawn, cover up at these times if mosquitoes are present, sleep under a net or use AC if available. However it is a personal choice you should discuss with your doctor.
The nearest re-compression chamber is in Bali, oxygen and First Aid kit is available at Lazy Turtle Dive. There is a hospital in Kalabahi although major treatment may need a visit to Kupang or Bali. It is wise to take extra precautions when in a remote area such as Alor.
Dive and travel insurance that covers trip cancellation or interruption is highly recommended. Divers Alert Network offers diver orientated policies.
