Tanzania welcomes tourists as Covid 19 numbers decline

Posted 31 May 2020 · Add Comment

The Tanzanian government has lifted the ban on scheduled and non-scheduled international air travel, following a decline in detected COVID-19 cases in the country.

Tanzania has chosen to lift the mandate of a 14-day quarantine for arrivals into the country, to promote tourism back into the country.

All international travellers and airport service providers are being advised to exercise ‘Infection Prevent and Control measures’, such as frequent hand washing, using a face mask and maintaining social distancing. In addition, travellers must submit completed traveller surveillance forms to port health authorities upon arrival and will be subject to temperature checks. Only passengers found to be displaying symptoms of the coronavirus will be required to quarantine.

According to Osprey Alerts, operators should be aware that air crew members may be subject to enhanced screening and, should it be suspected they have contracted the virus, will be quarantined. “In the event any flight crew are found to be positive, the aircraft will need to undergo decontamination. Airports will also be required to install sanitisation stations at multiple points within the terminal and also have dedicated waste collection containers for passengers to dispose of their face masks into,” the company said.

The country had suspended international passenger flights, although domestic flights have remained operational. Tanzania has recorded 509 cases of coronavirus, and 21 deaths.

Cargo flights, have also been operating and which will remain subject to Bilateral Air Services Agreements (BASAs) between Tanzania and other countries, Osprey reported.
