International Restrictions:

*Entry to Mauritania: As of 10 September 2020, some international flights to and from Mauritania have resumed. The Mauritanian authorities have introduced a number of measures to limit the risk of travellers spreading COVID-19 on arrival in Mauritania.

• You must take a PCR test dated within 3 days before arrival and show evidence of the negative test result, with the date of the test clearly labelled. You should take a private test.

• Non-Mauritanian nationals that arrive without a PCR test will not be allowed to enter the country and will be obliged to immediately return to their country of origin.

• You must wear a face-mask on arrival.

• You must complete an individual health declaration on arrival.

• You will undergo a contactless temperature check on arrival. If you have a temperature upon arrival, you must agree to a PCR or rapid antigen test. While waiting for the test result you must self-isolate at your own expense in a hotel or your place of residence for 10 days. If the test is negative, you can leave self-isolation before the end of the 10-day period.

If you are arriving from the UK, South Africa, Brazil, India or another country identified as a source of new COVID-19 variants, you must quarantine at your own expense in a hotel or your place of residence for 10 days. You must then take a PCR test in Mauritania, and if this is negative, you can exit quarantine. See the See the Coronavirus section for more information.

*Screening on arrival: You must present evidence of a negative COVID-19 PCR test, which must be taken within 3 days before your arrival. You should arrange to take a private test.
