People entering Ivory Coast will from Monday be required to present a “health pass” showing that they have been vaccinated, or taken a Covid-19 test in the last 72 hours.

President Alassane Ouattara made the announcement as part of the country’s measures to limit the spread of the virus.

Mr Ouattara also said that the validity of coronavirus PCR tests would be reduced from five to three days for travellers arriving to Ivory Coast by air.

Ivorian authorities recently warned that they might ban unvaccinated people from accessing public places.
