Togo has resumed international and domestic flights and imposed new travel requirements.

Key points:

  • International and domestic flights resumed Aug. 1.
  • Effective Aug. 10, all travelers entering Lomé Airport must present a negative test result from a COVID-19 PCR test taken no more than five days before boarding their flights. Travelers arriving at the airport are subject to a second PCR test at the terminal. They must complete the online traveler declaration form and pay for the second test before departing for Togo. The declaration form must be completed at least 24 hours before departing.
  • When inbound travelers are boarding, airlines will verify they have their negative COVID-19 PCR test results and proof of payment for the second test at Lomé Airport. Passengers who do not meet these requirements will not be allowed to board their flights.
  • All inbound travelers are required to install the contact tracing mobile application TOGO SAFE, when they arrive at Lomé Airport. They must also make sure it remains activated during their stay or for at least 30 days from their time of arrival. Travelers who do not install it will be quarantined in a state-provided containment facility for at least 14 days. Quarantine costs will be paid by the quarantined traveler. Quarantined travelers are required to follow quarantine rules and have the TOGO SAFE app installed and active while they wait for their COVID-19 test results.
  • Passengers departing from Lomé Airport are required to obtain a COVID-19 PCR test 72 hours before boarding their flights. Departing passengers must also fill out the health declaration form before their departures. All travelers to Lomé, Togo’s largest city and capital, have been recommended by the Togo government to obtain medical or travel insurance before they arrive.
