COVID-19 test requirements

Fully vaccinated travellers do not need to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result if they have proof of a WHO-approved vaccination. However, before travelling, you should check with your airline what documentation you will need to carry with you.

Travellers over the age of two who have not been vaccinated will need to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than five days before arriving in Senegal, issued in the country where you started your trip.

PCR tests can be taken in Senegal if they are required for the return journey. A PCR test at a centre in Senegal costs CFA25,000 (around US$40).
