Thank you for your question.
More appropriate code for the above documentation will be Z71.84 (Encounter for health counseling related to travel).
Note: This is a new code for 2020 ICD-10-CM code that became effective on October 1, 2019. This code specifies the encounter for health risk and safety counseling for (international) travel.
Hope that helps!
