NOSY BE ISLAND IS OPEN AGAIN
On Sunday, 9 August 2020 President Andry Rajoelina announced on TV that the Island of Nosy Be will be open again to overseas tourists as of 1st October. Precautionary measures will be taken: a PCR test will be mandatory on arrival, a return ticket will be required, and no trips outside Nosy Be will be allowed for the time being.
In addition, health protocols have been developed by the Ministry of Transport, Tourism and Meteorology, in partnership with the Madagascar National Tourism Board (ONTM) and the Madagascar Tourism Confederation (CTM).
A series of educational TV commercials is in the making and staff training in Nosy Be is scheduled to start as of 24 August.
A charter will be signed by operators who agree to apply the protocols, take the training courses and display the special preventive measures for tourists on their premises.
Nosy Be international airport and regional authorities are also hard at work preparing for the eagerly awaited return of overseas visitors under the safest possible health conditions.
