According to the Government spokesperson, Ebrima G. Sankareh, “first, one has to be an arriving passenger and second, must be in possession of the certificate showing negative COVID-19 test results confirmed at least seventy-two (72) hours before boarding any flight(s) to Banjul International Airport.”

Anyone who arrives in The Gambia without fulfilling these mandatory pre-departure health requirements shall be tested on arrival and undergo the mandatory 14-day quarantine, according to government senior information officer Prince Bubacarr Aminata Sankanu.

“Equally, those in violation shall be responsible for their own quarantine expenses,” he added.
