UPDATED: The Federal Government has imposed restrictions on passengers from Brazil, India, and Turkey.
The Federal Government has decided to refuse the visit of non-Nigerian passport holders and non-residents to Nigeria within 14 days.
This decision was made as part of the Presidential Steering Committee on COVID-19’s COVID-19 decisions, which were made in response to an increase in COVID-19 cases and fatalities in certain parts of the world.
In a statement titled “Travel advisory for passengers arriving Nigeria from Brazil, India, and Turkey,” the committee’s chairman, Boss Mustapha, revealed this.
According to the announcement, the travel advisory will go into effect on Tuesday and will be reviewed after a four-week period.
This guidance reads partially “The entry in Nigeria is refused to non-Nigerian passport holders and non-residents who have visited Brazil, India or Turkey within days of visiting Nigeria.

“However, this rule does not extend to travelers traveling through those countries.
“Airlines and passengers who do not comply with I and II(a) above are subject to the following measures: airlines are required to pay a $3, 500 penalty per passenger who defaults.
“Non-Nigerians are refused entry and sent back to the land of boarding at the airline’s expense.
“These passengers are subject to these conditions: the COVID-19 PCR test is to take place within 24 hours of arrival.
“If positive, in accordance with national treatment guidelines a passenger shall be accepted into a government-approved treatment centre.
“When negative, the passenger remains in quarantine and on Day 7 of their quarantine is subjected to a repeat PCR examination.”
Passengers arriving in Nigeria from other places have to observe a seven-day self-isolation at their final destination according to the guidelines.
“On Day 7 in a selected laboratory the COVID-19 PCR test is carried out and the competent authority shall monitor compliance with the isolation protocol.
“There shall be the responsibility for the prosecution of passersby who have given false or misleading contact details.
“They shall, however, be punished in accordance with the law for persons who willingly violate or refuse compliance with the guidelines of Port Health personnel, security agencies, or avoid Quarantine.”
“Council governments are expected to ensure compliance with the mandatory 7-day cycle of self-isolation and repeated COVID-19 PCR testing on the seventh day following arrival by monitoring all returnees from all countries.
