Revised Travel Advice for Tuvalu - February 2020
The Government of Tuvalu issued a revised travel advisory on 25 February 2020. It states:
Tuvalu borders (air and seaports) are closed to persons who have visited or transited through mainland China or any ‘high risk’ country within 14 days of their intended travel to Tuvalu. All travelers in these categories must remain in self-isolation in a country that is not ‘high risk’ for 14 days before traveling to Tuvalu.
A COVID-19 ‘high risk country’ is deemed as a country that has potential local (human to human) transmission’ (i.e. COVID-19 cases with possible or confirmed transmission outside of China). This information can be sourced from WHO's daily situational report, (see Table 2).
