African island of St. Helena is ending its quarantine requirement
St. Helena will rescind its quarantine requirements for visitors on Aug. 8. This decision follows a decision in May that reduced the quarantine requirement from 10 days to seven for those visiting the small volcanic island located about 1,200 miles off Africa's southwest coast.
The government of St. Helena said a communications plan has been drawn up and will be rolled out in the next six weeks. Information and advice, including travel advice, to assist both the community and people planning to visit the island, will be provided via the local media and other communication channels throughout the period leading up to the lifting of the quarantine requirements.
