Tourism Solomons has advised all passengers entering the Solomons Islands via air and sea ports and other points of entry who has been in or travelled through a ‘restricted country’ in the 14 days prior to arrival will be denied entry to the Solomon Islands.

Further, anyone who has been in or travelled through an ‘affected country’ in the 14 days prior will be required to complete a ‘health declaration card’ and also be subject to screening on arrival.

The new advisory follows further meetings between the Solomon Islands Government, the Ministry of Health, and Medical Services (MHMS).

Tourism Solomons CEO, Josefa ‘Jo’ Tuamoto said the revised assessment further builds on action instigated by local medical authorities in early January in close consultation with their immigration and customs counterparts.

“As an ongoing part of the procedure, all incoming visitors irrespective of point of entry are being provided with guidance on what to do if they think they have the infection,” he said.

To date no cases of the virus had been detected in the Solomon Islands.
