What is the health situation in Benin ?
Like everywhere in the world, the coronavirus is present in Benin.
However, despite the lack of containment, since the start of the pandemic, Benin has successfully implemented response measures to prevent the spread of the virus. Most of these measures are still operational to this day and must be observed by all travelers. We suggest you consult our last post which details these measures.
In summary, you can fully enjoy your trip to Benin, shops, tourist sites, restaurants are open, as in the whole world you will have to respect barrier gestures.
How to organize your trip to Benin ?
In an exceptional situation, exceptional measures! indeed, as in many countries, Benin has put in place an exceptional procedure to welcome travelers to Benin.
First, you must create a file on the dedicated site https://www.centresurveillancesanitaire.bj/ to obtain a code that you must present to take the PCR test on your arrival. We recommend choosing the option of the VIP PCR test at 75,000 F that you pay online by credit card to allow you to obtain your result within 24 hours and thus collect your passport. You must also on the same site create a file for your test necessary for the return, depending on the organization of your trip, you choose the basic test at 50,000 F which requires you to do it 72 hours before your departure at the Palais des congrès de Cotonou, or the VIP test at 75,000 F that you can perform 24 hours before your departure.
What are the consequences of # Covid19 measures in the course of your trip to Benin
In terms of transport, to respect the distancing measures, we must size the vehicle according to the number of people, in addition to the driver, we offer for 2 people a large sedan or a small 4x4 (type Toyota 4runer), for 3 people a large 4x4 type Toyota Prado, and beyond a minibus and for a group of 7 to 15 people two minibuses.
At the program level: to optimize your stay, you must take into account the constraints related to PCR tests. In principle, it seems relevant to us to choose the VIP test for arrival in Benin in order to be able to collect your passport within 24 hours and continue your trip to Benin quickly. For the return, you must plan to be able to perform the test 72 hours before your departure if you choose the basic option or 24 hours before your departure if you choose the VIP test.
