Solomon Islands lifts Covid entry requirements

Wednesday, 24 May, 2023 0

The Solomon Islands has finally lifted all Covid-19 specific border requirements.

Effective immediately, travellers no longer need to provide proof of Covid-19 vaccination or Covid-19 test.

Passengers arriving into the destination are still required to complete a health declaration card which is available onboard arriving aircraft or at the point of entry.

Tourism Solomons acting CEO Dagnal Dereveke said it should give the tourism industry a significant boost.

“The decision to drop entry requirements showcases the Solomon Islands as a welcoming and traveller-friendly destination,” Dereveke said.

However, the destination is still taking the threat of further infections seriously.

“Our main aim is to continue to train our local tourism industry workforce to ensure they deliver a safe, healthy environment for our visitors.”

Dereveke said it is a timely boost as the Solomon Islands will be hosting thousands of athletes, support staff and spectators attending the 2023 Pacific Games in November.
