Papeete, April 27th, 2020
Lightened lockdown in French Polynesia
Measures effective from April 29, 2020 until May 13, 2020.

In accordance with the measures in place to stop the spread of COVID-19 in French Polynesia, the authorities have declared a lightened lockdown from April 29 and for a period of 14 days, until May 13.

  • Access to the territory for all non-residents of French Polynesia is still suspended (since March 18, 2020), until further notice.
  • Retailers will be able to open, whilst ensuring barrier gestures are respected; restaurants and food trucks will therefore be able to reopen.
  • Beaches will also be open, whilst respecting social distancing, even on the seaside. Individual leisure, sports and nautical activities will therefore be allowed.
  • The reopening of administrations will be gradual, prioritizing teleworking where possible.
  • However, bars, discotheques, cinemas but also sports clubs will remain closed, collective trainings are still prohibited, as well as gatherings in public and private meetings with the extended family or friends gatherings are strongly discouraged.
  • Maritime and air travel between the islands is still prohibited in order to ensure active surveillance and control of the epidemic. However, access is possible between Tahiti and Moorea.
  • The curfew is maintained but will be shifted from 9pm to 5am.
