    WHO does not recommend entry screening for Ebola virus disease (EVD) outbreak in West Africa. However, for preparedness planning purposes, countries may wish to develop plans and procedures for entry screening according to their own risk assessment and cost benefit analysis. Entry screening procedures should not interfere with international travel and trade.

    This document provides recommendations for planning entry screening at Points of Entry (PoE). It was developed in collaboration with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the International Civil Aviation Organization and the International Air Transport Association. It includes: Planning for entry screening, overview of entry screening operations, data management, sample checklists, template declaration and other forms.
