The Presidential Steering Committee (PSC) has reviewed international travel protocol for outbound and inbound international travellers.

The revised protocol, contained in a statement by the Chairman of the PSC and Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Mr. Boss Mustapha, will take effect from Sunday, December 5, 2021.

The reviewed travel protocol, according to the statement, will, among other things, require all inbound travellers to present a negative COVID-19 PCR test result taken 48 hours before departure from their country of origin.

It will also require non-vaccinated and partially vaccinated international travellers to self-isolate for seven days as well as take the day-seven post-arrival COVID-19 PCR test.

“The Presidential Steering Committee on COVID-19 has reviewed the International Travel Protocol of 22nd October 2021. This revised protocol is aimed at further reducing the risk of importation and exportation of COVID-19, especially the variants of concern.

“In-bound Passengers: All passengers arriving in Nigeria are expected to provide evidence of and comply with the following rules; COVID-19 PCR test to be done within 48hrs before departure; Post-arrival Day 2 COVID-19 PCR test; Self-isolation for 7 days (For unvaccinated and partially vaccinated individuals); Day 7 post-arrival exit PCR test (For unvaccinated and partially vaccinated individuals).

“Out-bound Passengers: All out-bound Passengers are required to provide either of the following documentation; Valid evidence of full vaccination against COVID-19; Negative PCR test result within 48hrs from the time boarding,” the statement said.

The review of the protocol, according to the statement, is based on science, national experience and global developments.
