The Senegalese government recently extended the State of Emergency to May 3 to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Under the State of Emergency:

  • Senegal’s air, land and sea borders are closed.
  • Entry visas will not be issued in-country until the restrictions are lifted.
  • Movement of people, vehicles and some goods will be restricted.
  • A curfew will be in place from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.

Background: The recent extension maintains measures put in place under the initial March 23 State of Emergency declaration

Analysis & Comments: The extension will impact the movement of people to and within Senegal. Employers should account for affected travelers and rearrange travel schedules accordingly. Significant delays may occur for consular and in-country processing.
