PALIKIR, Pohnpei—The COVID-19 Task Force of the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) has suggested the following dates for repatriation flights in the month of April, which have been approved by His Excellency David W. Panuelo, President of the FSM.
For the State of Yap, the next repatriation flight will occur on April 6th.
For the State of Kosrae, the next repatriation flights will occur on April 4th and April 18th. For the State of Pohnpei, a special flight from the Republic of Fiji for essential personnel will occur on April 6th. Regular repatriation flights from the U.S. Territory of Guam will occur on April 16th and April 23rd.
For the State of Chuuk, the next repatriation flights will occur on April 11th and April 25th.
The FSM COVID-19 Task Force has recommended that the number of days of quarantine in Guam be reduced to five (5) days. This will continue to allow for multiple PCR-based COVID-19 tests to occur, including upon arrival at the designated quarantine facility, and prior to departure.
The FSM COVID-19 Task Force has recommended that quarantine in designated State Government facilities be reduced to three (3) days, combined with restriction of movement and home quarantine, since the Omicron situation has improved dramatically.
Repatriation dates for the month of May and beyond will be consistent with the regular schedule from international commercial carriers. It remains the intention of the FSM National Government to fully open the Nation’s borders sometime in August 2022.
