2 Things Inbound Travellers Should Have In Mind As FG Adjusts Travel Protocols

The federal government of Nigeria has recently made some crucial adjustments to the existing travel protocols that were instated to prevent the spread of Covid-19. According to the statement made on Friday, October 15, 2021, by the chairman of the presidential steering committee and secretary to the government of the federation, Boss Mustapha. Vaccinated inbound travellers do not have to be isolated for 7 days any longer when they arrive Nigeria.

He said that all what the vaccinated travellers are expected to do is to take the Covid-19 PCR test on the second day of their arrival, and they can be allowed to go afterwards. However, unvaccinated or partially vaccinated inbound travellers will have to compulsorily undergo the 7 days isolation process, take the Covid-19 PCR test on the second and seventh day after their arrival. Having had all these said, these are the two things inbound travellers should have in mind after the adjustment of the protocols.

1. Travellers who are coming to Nigeria on business trips for a period shorter than 7 days should be sure to get the full vaccination from wherever they are coming from.

Any business traveller who fails to get vaccinated may encounter some hindrances when he or she gets to Nigeria because if such traveller has planned to stay less than 7 days in Nigeria, he or she may spend more time than that and such action may take a toll on the business trip of such person. So, it is important that all travellers get fully vaccinated before coming to Nigeria.

2. Travellers who are partially vaccinated should also try to get fully vaccinated if they do not want to be isolated for 7 days when they get to Nigeria. These categories of travellers should not mistake a partial vaccination for a full vaccination.

These travellers should be aware that they would be completely treated the same way unvaccinated travellers are treated, and therefore they should get fully vaccinated if they do not want the 7 days isolation to be included in their travel plans to Nigeria.
