General Policy
  1. On June 15, the suspension of international flights, in effect since March 31, was lifted.
  2. As of 5 March 2021, U.S. Embassy in Equatorial Guinea reports that all travellers coming from the UK are prohibited entry.

  4. As of 8 February 2021, commercial flights are restricted to two flights abroad per week for national companies, one internal flight per week for international companies.
  5. The Ministry for Civil Aviation warns that entry "is subject to strict reciprocity, except via special authorisation. Thus, citizens from countries that restrict the entry of citizens of Equatorial Guinea to their territory will not be authorised to disembark in Equatorial Guinea... the European Union has published a list of countries whose citizens are admitted to its territory, and Equatorial Guinea is not included on it". The US does not yet have an entry restriction that restrict the entry of citizens of Equatorial Guinea, so this restiction may not apply to holders of US passport, but the decison is made by the airline.
