Following an increase in the number COVID-19 cases recorded over the last weeks, new measures to fight COVID-19 will be applicable from November 27th, 2020.

All passengers entering Niger by air at Niamey, Zinder and Agadez international airports will be subject to a mandatory 7-day home self- confinement. On the 7th day of self- confinement, the passenger will have to present themselves at the Chinese village for COVID-19 testing. The testing is free of charge. If the test is positive, they will be taken care of in accordance with the national protocol and if the test is negative self- confinement will be terminated.

This measure does not apply to short-stay travelers of less than 14 days in Niger.
