Vanuatu Maintains Strict Border Control

The Vanuatu National Task Force Committee, on Coronavirus, is satisfied with the border control measures enforced so far, since the World Health Organization (WHO) announced the outbreak of the deadly virus in December 2019.

Speaking to the Daily Post this week, the Communications Officer on the Task Force Committee, Mr. Russell Tamata, said the Committee has reviewed the border control measures and is satisfied with the overall border control so far.

He said the Public Advisory No. 3 that was issued last weekend, remains enforced.

That is that air passengers wishing to enter Vanuatu, must adhere to all health and border control measures including completing health and quarantine forms 14 days prior to boarding aircrafts, even those intending to transit through Australia, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, New Caledonia or New Zealand, must fully comply with the current strict control measures against coronavirus that are in place. He added that passengers not adhering to the strict measure in place will simply not be allowed into the country.

“Other countries in the region and elsewhere are applying the same strict measures,” Mr. Tamata assured.
