Côte d’Ivoire has implemented several measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Key points:

  • The country’s air borders are closed to incoming flights indefinitely.
  • Nationals of Côte d’Ivoire abroad are temporarily not allowed to enter the country.
  • Government offices are now on a limited work schedule operating from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on week days.
  • Travel to and from Abidjan, the most populous city, is not permitted. Individuals must wear masks in Abidjan, and inter-city and inter-municipal transport has been restricted.

Analysis & Comments: The government’s measures will impact the movement of people into Côte d’Ivoire. Additional measures may be announced in the coming weeks. Employers should account for affected travelers and rearrange travel schedules accordingly.
