All incoming travellers must have negative PCR test within 72 hours before arrival.
This was the message from the Prime Minister as he announced the full reopening of the international boarder as of 1st July.
Adding on to that he said only those who have completed their vaccination will be allowed to enter the country from overseas.
Mr Sogavare further announced that we will still apply a shorter quarantine period of 3 days after the reopening of the border.
“Incoming travellers will be required to have one PCR negative test on day three post arrive before they are released,” he added.
The three day quarantine will be review by the end of July.
He said the government will be doing home quarantine and will reduce people in quarantine facilities reserving them for incoming passengers.
The reopening of border is welcoming news for Ministry of Culture and Tourism and the local tourists’ operators.
