The Minister of Tourism, Hamat Bah has expressed optimism that with the new Covid-19 rules announced by Britain, the next tourist season will be good.

Addressing an audience during the meet-the-people tour in Niamina Dankunku, Minister Bah said tourists planning come to The Gambia from the UK will not be subjected to any Covid test or quarantine on their return if they are fully vaccinated.

He said his ministry will encourage Britons to come to The Gambia on holiday.

“Also, The Gambia is among the only two countries in the world that the British Government may allow to travel to the United Kingdom without being asked to provide any Covid-19 certifying documents,” he said.

Minister Bah said the UK has also lifted some of the conditions for those with diplomatic passports, saying the agreement was reached after the government had a meeting with the British High Commissioner in Banjul.

“The British Government will send a team to The Gambia who will consult with the Ministry of Health to look at the country’s Covid-19 certification process and if they are satisfied, then Gambians who want to travel to the UK will be given access even without providing Covid-19 certifying documents,” he said.

“The British Government is now allowing British citizens to come to Gambia to spend their holidays and other European countries will follow soon. They believe Gambia is a safe place where you can visit and spend your holidays. When the British Government made that pronouncement, President Adama Barrow wasted no time in ordering the ministries of health, tourism and their technical staff to action,” Minister Bah added.

Minister Bah said President Barrow wants to see the Gambian youth that lost their jobs to be engaged again.

“The president wants to see the tourism industry back after its closure due to Covid-19. These are things that have been his major concern. Therefore, the two ministries have agreed that with effect from the 1st October any visitor to the Gambia with a certificate that shows he/she is fully vaccinated is free to come to the country without PCR test or rapid test and the person will not be quarantined.”

By Nelson Manneh on October 4, 2021

The Ministry of Health has over the weekend updated the Gambia’s entry requirements meant to curb the spread of the deadly COVID-19 disease in the country.

“We wish to inform the general public that the entry requirements into The Gambia in response to COVID-19 are hereby updated. This is in line with the current status of the COVID-19 response in the country,” the ministry said in a statement.

This new entry requirement comes into effect immediately, starting Wednesday 29th September 2021.

The ministry said passengers who have been fully vaccinated do not need a PCR test to enter into The Gambia.

However, the ministry said if such individuals have signs or symptoms similar to those of COVID-19, they will be required to undergo Rapid Diagnostic Test forCOVID-19 at the airport.

“Non-vaccinated or partially vaccinated individuals will need a negative PCR test report valid within 72hrs for entry into the country. Passengers from countries considered as hotspots for the delta variant will in addition undergo a Rapid Diagnostic Test at the airport upon arrival,” the ministry said.

The ministry informed the public that all departing passengers will be required to adhere to the COVID-19 testing requirement for the destination countries upon confirmation by the Port Health Officers or airline representatives as might be published.

This is very good news for the Gambia as without foreign money the country will have a very big problem many tourist activities will just disintegrate.
