Posted by [email protected] on November 29, 2014 at 2:50 PM

U.S. citizens should take note of the information on the Ebola Virus Disease and the new screening process provided below.The Department of Homeland Security requires that all persons traveling to the United States from the West African countries of Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Mali must enter the U.S. through New York's Kennedy, Newark’s Liberty, Washington's Dulles, Chicago's O'Hare, and Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson airports and undergo EVD screening.

Passengers traveling from Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Mali who were not originally passing through one of these airports must rebook their flights to make entry through one of the listed airports.

Due to an outbreak of Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in the west African nations of Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone, the Centers for Disease Control has issued Health Travel Warnings for those three countries advising against nonessential travel and has provided guidance to reduce the potential for spread of EVD. Please note that a CDC Level 2 Travel Alert has been issued for Mali. The Department of State has issued Travel Warnings for Liberia and Sierra Leone.

The CDC has provided interim guidance to public health authorities, airlines, and other partners for evaluating risk of exposure of persons coming from countries affected by Ebola. Please note that neither the Bureau of Consular Affairs nor the Embassy deals with quarantine issues and cannot prevent a U.S. citizen from being quarantined should local health authorities require it. For questions about quarantine, please visit the CDC website that addresses quarantine and isolation issues.

The Department of State has also issued a Travel Alert for parts of West Africa because of EVD. Click here to read the Alert.
