THE Comptroller General of Nigeria Immigration Service, Muhammad Babandede, has directed the relevant formations to ensure immediate compliance with the travel restriction order on temporary travel restrictions on 100 passengers due to non-compliance with the mandatory Day-7 post-arrival Covid-19 PCR Test by all in-bound travelers.

The statement by the Nigeria Immigration Service said that the 100 defaulting passengers had been restricted for a period of six months, from January 1, 2021 to June 30, 2021.

It added that all the affected passengers have been notified and will be prevented from Passport re-issuance and traveling outside the country during this period.

“The Nigeria Immigration Service hereby warns all affected passengers to comply to avoid breaching public health protocols and refusal of departure,” the statement said.
