US ranks Togo as one of the safest travel destinations for its citizens

(Togo First) - Two weeks after the UK did, the US has also relaxed travel conditions to Togo. The economic powerhouse recently ranked the West African nation one of the safest countries in the world for its citizens and other travelers, relative to the risk of Covid-19 infection. 

The US State department has, in effect, published an updated comprehensive list of countries where its citizens should preferably not travel to (level 4), where travel should be reconsidered (level 3), where they should be highly vigilant (level 2), or just “take normal precautions” (level 1).

Togo falls in the level 1 category, in a context where until very recently, the US advised its citizens against traveling to most African countries because of the coronavirus pandemic. Besides Togo, five other African countries (out of 10 worldwide) fall in the category of safe destinations for US citizens; they are Eswatini, Ghana, Gambie, Malawi, Sénégal.  

What does this mean for US citizens visiting Togo? They will just need to present a negative PCR test result taken within a maximum period of seven days, then self-quarantine for 10 days. 

Between May 10 and June 7, the number of Covid cases in Togo dwindled drastically, from 1,348 to 167 active cases
