Tanzania’s President John Magufuli said on Sunday he was looking to encourage foreign tourists, business visitors to fly to Tanzania for normal holidays and business.
President Magufuli said that Covid-19 infections in the country has gone down tremendously, and was looking to welcome tourists to visit Tanzania unconditionally.
“I have directed the Ministry of Tourism to attract airline companies to fly their tourist and passenger scheduled planes to Tanzania with immediate effect”said Magufuli.
He said that no foreign visitor will be subjected to 14 days quarantine when landing in Tanzania, but, full protective measures against Covid-19 spread will be observed by tourists scheduled to visit this country.
The Covid-19 protective measures now in place in Tanzania are the wearing of a mask, washing hands with flowing water and soap, hand sanitizing and distancing by one meter of a bit more in gatherings, and in public passenger vehicles.
However, this move by Tanzania has caused Cuthbert Ncube, chairman of the African Tourism Board, to call Africa to be careful on the impact or return of COVID-19.
