If you’re transiting another country during your journey, you should check travel advice of the countries on your route for the latest entry requirements. Your airline may refuse to allow you to board if you do not meet all requirements.
Currently all land borders (with Sierra Leone, Guinea and Côte d’Ivoire) and ports are open.
See Entry requirements to find out what you will need to do before travelling and when you arrive in Liberia.
No travel is risk-free during COVID-19. Countries may further restrict travel or bring in new rules at short notice, for example due to a new COVID-19 variant. Check with your travel company or airline for any transport changes which may delay your journey home.
If you test positive for COVID-19, you may need to stay where you are until you test negative. You may also need to seek treatment there.
Plan ahead and make sure you:
All travellers should check the COVID-19 guidelines and regulations of their destination country. If you’re travelling from Liberia to countries that require a COVID-19 test, you must present a negative COVID-19 test certificate before departure:
To check your PCR test results online, visit 2 to 3 days after sample collected you must enter your unique identification number (provided when your sample was collected), and your year of birth.
Testing protocols could change at short notice. You should monitor this travel advice for updates, contact your airline before travel, and consult government sources for announcements (see Further information).
COVID-19 National Health Guidelines have been published by the Government of Liberia on the Ministry of Health website. Measures in place to minimise the spread of COVID-19 apply in all 15 counties. These measures will remain in place until announced otherwise. Violation of health measures is punishable by a fine of up to US$200 and/or imprisonment of up to 30 days. Measures could be changed at short notice. Authorities may impose a lockdown or curfew if COVID-19 cases continue to rise. You should monitor government communications for announcements (see Further information).
Liberian healthcare facilities have experienced severe capacity constraints, including lack of oxygen and critical care beds. You should consider the significant health risks before travelling to Liberia. For further information, see Health.
Patients who test positive for coronavirus will be subject to Liberia’s case management guidelines. This means the National Public Health Institute of Liberia (NPHIL) will consider on a case-by-case basis and you may be taken to a government COVID-19 Treatment Unit or quarantine facility. Home-based care is considered on a case-by-case basis. Private medical facilities are currently not permitted to test for or treat coronavirus. If you test positive, you must answer phone calls from the health authorities. If you think you have COVID-19 symptoms, you should call the COVID-19 hotline on 4455.
