The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA, has vowed to fine airlines $3,500 for every passenger that disobeys the new COVID-19 travel rules announced by the Presidential Task Force.
In the circular titled ‘Protocol for all passengers originating from the United Kingdom and South Africa’, the NCAA Director-General, Capt. Musa Nuhu explained that the new protocols were to curtail a new variant of the COVID-19 virus that was fast spreading round the world.

The circular read in part, “Passengers must present the following two documents to be allowed to board their flights to Nigeria: Pre-departure Permit to Fly/QR code generated from the Nigeria International Travel Portal ( showing evidence of payment for the post-arrival day 7 COVID-19 PCR test and Documentary evidence of a negative COVID-19 PCR result done within 96 hours (four days) of boarding from a verifiable laboratory or health facility.”

Nuhu further stated, “On arrival in Nigeria, passengers will be received and processed separately by public health authorities. All passengers will be required to self-isolate for seven days after arrival followed by a COVID-19 PCR test.”
He equally warned that any carrier flouting the new rules would have its permit or approval to fly into Nigeria suspended.
