Nigeria bans travelers from India, Turkey and Brasil over coronavirus

From Tuesday May 4, 2021 travelers with non-Nigerian passports and non-residents who visited Brazil, India, or Turkey within 14 days will be denied entry into Nigeria.

This decision was part of the decisions reached by the Presidential Steering Committee on COVID-19 following increasing cases of COVID-19 and fatalities in some parts of the world.

The committee’s chairman, Boss Mustapha, disclosed this in a statement titled ‘Travel advisory for passengers arriving Nigeria from Brazil, India, and Turkey.’

According to the statement, the travel advisory shall take effect from Tuesday May 4,2021 while it shall be subjected to review after an initial period of four weeks.

The guidelines read in part, “Non-Nigerian passport holders and non-residents who visited Brazil, India or Turkey within days preceding travel to Nigeria, shall be denied entry into Nigeria.

This regulation, however, does not apply to passengers who transited through these countries.
The following measures shall apply to airlines and passengers who fail to comply with I and II(a) above: airlines shall mandatorily pay a penalty of $3,500 for each defaulting passenger.
Non-Nigerians will be denied entry and returned to the country of embarkation at a cost to the airline.
