COVID19 no longer required for vaccinated travelers arriving in Nigeria - FG

The Federal government has announced that travelers who are fully vaccinated and coming into Nigeria will not be required to take a COVID-19 test prior to departure.

The Chairman of the Presidential Steering Committee, Boss Mustapha, disclosed this during a briefing of the PSC announcing a revision of International Travel Protocols on Monday, March 21.

Mustapha added that passengers who are unvaccinated or partially vaccinated are still expected to take a COVID-19 PCR test 48 hours before departure, or do a Day 2 and day 7 test on arrival.

He stressed that such passengers will be expected to pay for their PCR tests through the Federal Government’s travel platform, while fully vaccinated passengers will not be charged for rapid antigen tests at the airport.
