From October 23, Americans will be allowed to enter Madagascar. The American Embassy in Madagascar and the Comoros announced the policy change as well as the resumption of international and domestic flights. To enter the country, visitors will need to take a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of entering and pass health exams at points of entry.
Visitors will also need to show proof of at at least two nights booked in a hotel then take another PCR test when you arrive. In Madagascar, these tests cost around $ 29. You will need to sign a waiver agreeing to stay in your hotel room until the test results are returned.
American entry into Madagascar is not promised in the future. The island nation is only allowing entry to guests from countries with a COVID-19 infection rate of less than 300 cases per 100,000 population each week. The Centers for Disaster Control and Prevention currently report about 160 cases per 100,000 people each week in the United States. If the number of cases in the United States increases, Americans could be barred from entry.
In addition, a curfew is currently in place in the country between 12 p.m. and 4 a.m.
Madagascar is not the only country to reopen to American travelers. In recent weeks, Chile, Argentina, Thailand and Canada are just a few of the countries that have announced that American travelers will be welcome. Many countries require travelers to be vaccinated or quarantined upon arrival for up to 14 days. CDC has its own system of advice for where Americans should and shouldn’t travel due to the spread of COVID-19. More recently, Singapore, Belarus and Moldova have been added to the list of countries most at risk.
