DRC Operations Normal after Ebola Outbreak: Operations at Goma International Airport are not affected following a confirmed outbreak of the Ebola virus in Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) last week.
The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the DRC’s Ebola crisis a public health emergency of international concern.
The DRC Ministry of Health has installed an oversight and inspection team at the entry points to operate round-the-clock at Goma International Airport (FZNA).
Meanwhile, the UK is advising only necessary travel to Goma, while the U.S. State Department advises against any travel to Goma.
Kenyan authorities have implemented an Ebola declaration form for operators to Kenya originating from high-risk Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) countries.
The referred to points of departure to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) are; Kinshasa (Democratic Republic of Congo), Juba (South Sudan), Kigali (Rwanda), Bujumbura (Burundi) Entebbe (Uganda) and Addis Ababa (Ethiopia).
Please notes that these should be filled in and printed by passengers well before arrival in Kenya as EVD surveillance forms cannot be completed at the terminal.
