Effective March 25, the government has suspended all international flights until further notice and imposed mandatory quarantine on those arriving in the country before the flight suspension.

Key Points:

  • All international flights are suspended, with the exception of cargo flights.
  • Those who arrived before the March 25 deadline must undergo quarantine at a government-designated facility at their own expense.
  • Kenyans who remain abroad after the deadline are advised to follow the guidelines of the country where they are located.
  • Effective March 27, a daily curfew from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. will be in effect in Kenya.

Additional information: Earlier this month, the government imposed a travel ban and limited immigration services to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Analysis & Comments: Employers should prepare for significant disruptions to employee mobility and postponement of business travel. Foreign nationals are strongly advised to comply with self-quarantine measures, as those who disobey them may face 14-day quarantine in a government facility at their expense, as well as criminal prosecution. The response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop, and Deloitte will provide additional updates as information becomes available.
