The Federal Government of Nigeria has said that all travelers arriving in the country must now give evidence of COVID vaccination in the wake of the latest virus wave.
Geoffrey Okatubo, the director of port health services, revealed this on Monday, January 23 at a media briefing at the ministry of health in FCT Abuja.
Recall that in December 2022, the federal government relaxed the COVID-19 rules in the country.
But while speaking on Monday, January 23, Okatubo announced that port health services had increased surveillance at points of entry following the reported surge in the cases of COVID in countries like China, Japan, and the United States.
“All international travelers arriving in Nigeria are now required to provide evidence of vaccination at the point of entry. It has also been agreed that unvaccinated passengers arriving from other countries may have to be vaccinated at the airport.”
