Message for U.S. Citizens: Update One for 3/26

The State Department continues to explore all options to help American citizens evacuate.

Thank you to all who provided the information necessary to express interest in the private charter which may be run by Ethiopian Airlines from Antananrivo to Addis Ababa on Tuesday March 31 leaving at 14:30 and arriving at 19:10.  Again, there are no guarantees the flight will run nor that a seat will be available. Priority considerations are given to older adults, people with underlying health conditions (such as diabetes or heart and lung disease), minors traveling without a parent or legal guardian, as well as other adults in need of medical assistance. The Embassy will contact you with updates.

Madagascar has declared a state of health emergency and placed restrictions on movement as well as instituted a curfew. Amcits have reported issues due to the restrictions.

Please read about the restrictions by following links on The Embassy’s COVID-19 website which will continue to be updated.

The Department of State has issued a Global Level 4 Health Advisory advising U.S. citizens to not travel due to the global impact of COVID-19.
