Travel advisory

Nigeria continues to see positive cases of COVID-19. Public health measures, such as protocols for international arrivals, the use of facemasks, and social distancing in public settings, remain in place.

Due to the low amount of testing, the true extent of COVID-19 infections in Nigeria is unclear; travellers should take precautions, even if official positive case figures are low

Interim Travel Guidelines for Passengers arriving in Nigeria:   

  • In-bound passengers to Nigeria who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 are no longer required to undergo COVID-19 PCR testing before boarding Nigeria-bound flights
  • Fully vaccinated passengers arriving in Nigeria are not required to undergo COVID-19 testing upon arrival. This also applies to children under the age of 18      
  • In-bound passengers who are unvaccinated or partially vaccinated are required to take a COVID-19 PCR test 48 hrs before departure and undergo Days 2 and 7 post-arrival PCR tests at their own cost
