Luanda - The Angolan government announced Saturday the suspension, as of Monday, 10, of the entry into Angola of non-resident foreign citizens from or with passages in Brazil and India.

According to the Minister of State and Head of the Civil House of the President of the Republic, Adão de Almeida, who was speaking at a press conference on the new restrictive measures to prevent and fight Covid-19, it does not cover Angolans and resident foreign citizens who must, however, comply with a mandatory quarantine of seven days.

Adão de Almeida warned that it was still compulsory for travellers to carry out tests before boarding and after disembarking in Angolan territory.

The government official also warned that from now on citizens that provide false information upon arrival (false data about the place of residence) will be fined.

The application of the fine, he said, aimed to discourage a practice that is registered in the filling out of the post-disembarkation form at the 4 de Fevereiro international airport.

According to the minister, the country remains under sanitary fence.
