The SGF said travellers arriving in Nigeria must present a negative COVID-19 PCR test result conducted not more than 72 hours before boarding.

Henceforth, unvaccinated and partially vaccinated in-bound passengers will be required to observe a mandatory 7-day self-isolation in addition to a COVID-19 PCR test on days 2 and 7 after arrival.

Fully vaccinated in-bound passengers will not be required to observe the mandatory 7-days self-isolation but will be required to do a COVID-19 PCR test on day 2 of arrival.

Also, persons arriving on a business trip or on official duty staying less than 7 days in Nigeria must be fully vaccinated, produce a negative COVID-19 PCR result 72 hours before boarding, and conduct a PCR test on day 2 of their arrival.

Mustapha explained that the revised travel protocol was based on science, national experience, and global developments.
