The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has issued a travel advisory for passengers arriving in the country from Brazil, South Africa, and Turkey.

“Nigerian citizens and resident permit holders from these countries must undergo a seven-day supervised quarantine at a government selected facility at their own cost,” part of the advisory said.

According to the document, passengers must perform a COVID-19 PCR test not more than 3 days (72 hours) before boarding.

“PCR tests done more than 72 hours before departure are not valid and persons will not be
allowed to board. Rapid antigen or antibody test are not acceptable; only PCR tests can be used for this
purpose. Test validity commences from the time of sample collection. For passengers with multiple
connections before arrival in Nigeria, the PCR test must be valid within 72 hours of boarding from the
first point of departure. Passengers must bring along an electronic or hard copy of their COVID-19 PCR
test for presentation at the departure airport and upon arrival in Nigeria.”
