KRALENDIJK – From April 8, 2021, travelers from Latin America and other countries have already been banned from flying and will go to federal isolation for 10 days at their own expense once the ponier arrives. It takes place in central locations appointed by Lieutenant Governor Edison Rizna.
These include travelers from Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, Uruguay, Venezuela, the United Kingdom and South Africa. The risk of Brazilian type corona virus is high in Latin America. Bonaire wants to prevent the spread of the Brazilian virus on the island by a mandatory PCR test five days later.
Children up to the age of 13 also travel with adults. After five days of arrival, isolated travelers can have a PCR test at their own expense, and children under the age of 13 are not required to do so. The test result should be sent to the Department of Public Health. If the test result is negative, passengers and children up to 13 years of age may be isolated.
The exact costs per person depend on the location of the room and the number of people. It’s different for everyone. According to the OLB, it can fetch between $ 50 and $ 100 per person per day.
Direct flights from the countries mentioned above have been banned for some time. Check-in (s) are mandatory for these passengers before departure. All passengers aged 13 and over must have a negative PCR / NAT test before departure for Bonaire and should not be tested for more than 24 hours before departure. Another option is to have a negative PCR test taken 72 hours before the negative antigen test results come along. Antigen testing should be taken no later than 24 hours before departure.
Bonaire has been locked up for two weeks since March 18 this year. Lieutenant Governor Edison Rizna last Thursday extended the lockout for two weeks until April 16, 2021. Due to high infections, health care on the island is under pressure. Last week, five Govt-19 patients from Bonaire were transferred to hospitals outside the island. So residents and visitors must follow the basic steps.
