Quarantine protocol

The Cameroonian government has updated the previous policy of mandatory quarantine for travelers. Air passengers with a positive COVID-19 test result will be required to enter isolation at home or in a government facility at their own expense depending on their symptoms. Although quarantine is not required, travelers may have been exposed to COVID-19 during their travels and are encouraged to limit contact with others for 14 days after their trip.
The Government of Cameroon now requires all outbound passengers to present a negative COVID-19 PCR test result dated within 72 hours of boarding an international flight. Travelers must use a government-approved testing site and register their results in one of two databases depending on the point of departure (Yaoundé or Douala).


Vaccine authorised to be used in the country

The Cameroonian Prime Minister announced as of March 18, 2020 that all land, sea, and air borders would be closed until further notice due to COVID-19. While many airlines have been given permission to resume limited flights, officially the borders’ status is still “closed.”
