Covid-19 | the health crisis and cross-border mobility | Côte d'Ivoire-Burkina Faso case

Since the advent of the health crisis due to COVID-19, road traffic between Côte d'Ivoire and its neighboring countries has been suspended. However, in cases of force majeure the authorities may exceptionally, after analysis of the reason, issue a laissez-passer. On Thursday January 28, our team traveled to Burkina Faso with an authorization issued by the Embassy of Faso in Côte d'Ivoire. Once in Doropo, the last Ivorian town before the border, the national gendarmerie of Côte d'Ivoire tells us that the pass from the embassy is not addressed to the Ivorian forces but rather to those of Burkina. You had to get a pass from the Ministry of the Interior.
