  • Benin Government extends COVID-19 lockdown until 10 May (Reuters, 30.04.2020)

    International restrictions:

    All borders are closed until at least 31 May. Bolivian nationals and residents may be granted entry, but require prior approval and/or a diplomatically-arranged flight. There are currently no known restrictions on individuals seeking to depart the country. However, due to the lack of flight availability, any exit from the country should be coordinated with the government and the traveller’s diplomatic mission. Military forces will be deployed to the city of Santa Cruz to enforce measures.

    Conditions and internal restrictions:

    A quarantine is in effect in La Paz, El Alto, and Santa Cruz, and “high risk” municipalities in the Cochabamba department until 31 May. Individuals may leave their homes on foot for essential needs between 07.00 and 12.00 (local time) one day a week, based on their national ID number. All private and public transportation services are suspended, including domestic flights, inter-provincial and inter-departmental buses and local vehicle traffic. Exemptions for essential services and healthcare workers are granted via special permits issued by the authorities. Violations are punishable by fine and/or detention.

    Relaxation of restrictions:

    Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) indicated that from 11 May, Bolivia will implement “dynamic quarantine.” Towns and cities will be classified as high, medium or moderate risk based on coronavirus data. Different quarantine restrictions will apply depending on the designated risk level, which the Bolivian government will re-assess every seven days.
