As the Nigerian airspace opens up gradually for international travels, measures have been put in place to ensure the safety of all passengers entering or leaving Nigeria as the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic rages on.

Such measures include the launch of the Nigerian International Travel Portal (NITP) by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 (PTF-COVID-19) with support from the Private Sector Coalition Against COVID-19 (CACOVID). The portal, which is currently hosted on the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) website, houses a list of mandatory protocols that travelers must undergo.

The protocol requires that all persons arriving in Nigeria must have tested negative for COVID-19 having undergone a PCR test in the country of departure pre-boarding. The test, however, must be done within 96 hours before departure and preferably 72 hours pre-boarding.

Additionally, passengers will be required to pay for the repeat COVID-19 PCR test on arrival in Nigeria
