Travelers can now enter Cameroon by land, air, or sea without undergoing systematic testing or presenting a COVID-19 vaccination card. The decision to lift all anti-COVID-19 measures was made on June 20th by the Minister of Public Health.
In a letter addressed to the personnel of the Ministry of Public Health responsible for implementing and monitoring these measures, Minister Manaouda Malachie instructs "the immediate lifting of all health measures conditioning entry into Cameroonian territory, including systematic testing and the presentation of a COVID-19 vaccination card at air, sea, and land border health checkpoints."
The official states that he is following the guidelines of the Cameroonian Scientific Council for Public Health Emergencies and the lifting of the global health emergency status for COVID-19.
On May 5th, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced the lifting of the highest level of global alert for COVID-19. This led to a relaxation of Covid-19 measures in most countries. However, Cameroon kept its measures in place, causing frustration at its borders.
