Key points

  • The country’s air borders are closed to incoming flights indefinitely.
  • Nationals of Côte d’Ivoire abroad are temporarily not allowed to enter the country.
  • Government offices are now on a limited work schedule operating from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on week days.
  • Travel to and from Abidjan, the most populous city, is not permitted. Individuals must wear masks in Abidjan, and inter-city and inter-municipal transport has been restricted.

The various pandemic-related measures implemented by the government will impact the movement of people into Côte d’Ivoire for the time being. Depending on how the COVID-19 situation unfolds, there could be additional measures announced in the coming weeks. Employers should account for affected travelers and rearrange travel schedules accordingly.
