Vanuatu is to allow the first regional flight from Solomon Islands to Port Vila this week.

The Director of Public Health, Len Tarivonda, said the incoming passengers won’t be expected to undergo 14 days of quarantine since the Solomon Islands, like Vanuatu, has no Covid-19 cases.

The Vanuatu Daily Post reports the number of passengers arriving has not been specified

It is believed to be the first of a series of incoming repatriation flights from nearby countries for Vanuatu citizens stranded due to the global coronavirus restrictions.
