The federal government last night released a revised travel protocol into Nigeria effective October 25.

Chairman, Presidential Steering Committee (PSC) on COVID-19 and Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Mr. Boss Mustapha, said that travellers arriving in Nigeria must present a negative COVID-19 PCR test result conducted not more than 72 hours before boarding.

He said that the review of the protocol was based on science, national experience and global developments.

He said the protocol would require unvaccinated and partially vaccinated in-bound passengers to observe a mandatory seven-day self-isolation in addition to a COVID-19 PCR test on days two and seven after arrival.

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

“Persons arriving on ‘Business’ trip or on official duty staying less than seven days in Nigeria must be fully vaccinated, produce negative COVID-19 PCR result 72hours before boarding; and conduct a PCR test on day two of their arrival,” Mustapha said.
