On July 16, the Government of Senegal announced new restrictions that impact entry into Senegal by foreign nationals. Foreign nationals may now be restricted from entering Senegal if they are not residents of Senegal or a country that is a member of the Economic Community of West African States or meet certain other exemptions. The government of Senegal has said airlines are not allowed to carry foreign nationals from countries who have advised against travel to Senegal unless they are ordinarily resident in Senegal, diplomats, military, health professionals and other specific professional categories. They have also said they will not allow entry to nationals from countries who have restrictions on travel from Senegal. The government have not yet specified which countries they consider fall into these categories. Consult the Senegal Ministry of Tourism for more information.
To enter Senegal, all travelers must have a medical certificate with a negative PCR test result for COVID-19, issued at most 7 days before arrival. Travelers without a medical certificate will be subject to medical screening at their own cost. Current testing fees are FCFA 40,000 per passenger, which must be paid in cash at the time of testing. Travelers must also complete and submit a ‘Public Health Passenger Locator’ form on arrival in Senegal. The form can be found on the Dakar Airport website.
