Cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed in Angola. The Angolan authorities have introduced a number of measures to limit the spread of the virus.
The Angolan Government suspended international flights in and out of the country on 20 March and introduced a state of emergency on 27 March until at least 11 April. This activated a series of measures to limit the spread of the virus, including significant restrictions on movement throughout the country. All citizens have been asked to remain at home. Most shops, other than those selling food or medicine, are currently closed. The Angolan police are robustly enforcing these rules. Public transport is operating at a reduced level and there are no internal flights.
Entry and borders
All scheduled international flights to and from Angola were suspended from 20 March until further notice.
The Government of Angola has also announced that nobody (apart from returning Angolan nationals or expatriates residing permanently in Angola) will be allowed into Angola after having visited China, South Korea, Iran, France, Spain, Portugal or Italy since December. All returning residents who have been to China, South Korea, Iran, France, Spain, Portugal or Italy will be placed in obligatory quarantine for 14 days upon arrival.
