Gabon bock EU Visitors

On Wednesday in Gabon, the government said that European tourists and business travellers would not be granted visas after the European Union excluded it from a safe list of countries of which the bloc is allowing non-essential travel.

The European Union re-opened on Wednesday to leisure or business travel from 14 countries beyond its borders based on its success in containing the coronavirus. The list was approved by a majority of member states on Tuesday. And in corresponded to its exclusion, the foreign ministry of Gabon instructed diplomatic missions to deny tourist visas to the citizens of the European Union member states when Gabon’s air borders re-opened on Wednesday.

A letter from the ministry saying that the policy had been adopted in the application of the principle of reciprocity. Some visas will be granted for missions authorized by the government.

Four African countries – Algeria, Morocco, Rwanda, and Tunisia – are included on the European Union list. In Gabon, they have recorded 5,394 cases of COVID-19, including 42 deaths, one of the higher rates in Central Africa.
