ALL Travellers Arriving Nigeria Now Must Provide Evidence Of COVID Vaccination – FG

The federal government says all travellers arriving Nigeria must now provide evidence of COVID vaccination.

Geoffrey Okatubo, director of port health services, said this on Monday during a media briefing at the ministry of health in Abuja.

In December 2022, the federal government had relaxed COVID rules in the country.

The federal government had also said pre-departure and post-arrival PCR test requirements for all persons who are not fully vaccinated have been suspended, adding that passengers will no longer be required to upload evidence of vaccination on the Nigeria International Travel Portal (NITP).

Speaking on Monday, Okatubo said port health services had heightened surveillance at points of entry following the reported surge in the cases of COVID in countries like China, Japan, and the United States.

“Port health services has resumed checks of passengers’ vaccination status and will provide traffic data on inbound passengers from all over the world,” he said.

“All international travellers arriving Nigeria are now to provide evidence of vaccination at point of entry and it was agreed that unvaccinated passengers arriving from other countries may have to be vaccinated at the airport.
