The Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19 (PTF) says passengers arriving the country, who refused to do the in-country coronavirus tests as stipulated in the guidelines for the reopening of international flights, will be allowed 14 days to have the test done.

Coordinator of PTF, Dr. Sani Aliyu, who disclosed this at a briefing yesterday in Abuja, said that all travelers coming into the country needed a negative COVID-19 PCR test to be conducted at a certified laboratory, and done very close to the departure date, preferably within 72 hours, or not longer than seven days.

He said all passengers coming into the country must register on Nigeria international travel portal, pay for a PCR test to be done in-country and fill an online health declaration form which they must submit.
