COVID-19: Travel restrictions issued

17 Apr 20

IMPACT – HIGH

The Cameroon government has announced travel restrictions to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Key points:

  • All borders are closed to travel from air, land and sea.
  • Cameroonians who are abroad may return to Cameroon, but first they must visit a Cameroonian embassy in the foreign country where they are staying.
  • Recent travelers to Cameroon have been placed in 14-day quarantines at designated hotels in Yaounde and Douala.
  • Visas to Cameroon are no longer being issued, but work permits and residence permits can still be obtained.
  • Government offices remain open at this time but access to them is limited.
  • The new travel restrictions will impact the movement of people into Cameroon. Employers should account for affected travelers and rearrange travel schedules accordingly. Delays may occur for consular and in-country processing.
