St Helena Travel Restrictions

St Helena travel restrictions in response to the COVID-19 virus

On 24th June the St Helena Government announced travel restrictions to the Island in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please see as follows.

Arrivals and Quarantine Arrangements 

South Africa has relaxed their lockdown restrictions to level 3, which allows limited domestic flights within the country. International flights are not expected to resume until the country moves to level 1 or 0 – when this will happen is currently not known. It was considered by the IEG as reasonable to assume that scheduled commercial air services to the Island will not commence within the next three months. All new arrivals to St Helena will continue to be subject to legally required 14-day quarantine at Bradley’s Camp or another suitable location as directed by a Proper Officer. New arrivals are tested for COVID-19 after the 14 days quarantine as an extra reassurance. We recommend that keep yourself updated of the latest news on COVID-19 and St Helena by regularly checking the St Helena Government website https://www.sainthelena.gov.sh/ and St Helena Airport website http://sthelenaairport.com/.
