Travel restrictions and quarantine requirements imposed on countries other than China by President David Panuelo of the Federated States of Micronesia have been reinstated – just days after they were lifted by resolution of the country’s Twenty-first Congress.
The travel ban, which was set forth in response to the outbreak of Coronavirus, was initially included in the Public Health Emergency Declaration for FSM that was instated on 31 January by President Panuelo. That Declaration has been extended for up to 60 days from that date, according to the Congressional resolution. However, when we went to press on 12 February, the travel ban had been lifted, giving visitors the green light to continue their plans for visiting Micronesia.
The latest news coming out of the region is that the travel restrictions and quarantine requirements have been reinstated at least until the end of February.
