The Federal Government has banned entry to non-Nigerian passengers who have been in Brazil, India or Turkey in the last fortnight due to concerns over the spread of coronavirus.

In a statement on Sunday, May 2, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and Chairman, Presidential Task Force on Covid-19, Boss Mustapha, disclosed that the travel ban, which will come into effect from Tuesday, May 4, does not apply to passengers who have transited through those countries.

Mustapha, who advised Nigerians to suspend non-essential travels to any country for now, said, “Any person who has visited Brazil, India or Turkey within14 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 cost to the Airline.

Nigerians and those with permanent resident permit shall undergo seven days of mandatory quarantine in a Government approved facility at the point-of-entry city and at cost to the passenger.”
