For deliberately refusing the mandatory COVID-19 test upon arrival in the country, over 100 travelers will have their passport details published.

This was disclosed by presidential task force (PTF) on COVID-19

Travelers are mandated to run the rest seven days after their arrival.

At its daily briefing on Thursday, the PTF said the holders of the passports will be suspended from travelling for a minimum of six months for flouting obligation to test.

At the last briefing, Boss Mustapha, chairman of the task force, had said a total of 20,216 in-bound travelers refused to show up for the post arrival test they signed up, thereby endangering members of the country.

He had said the PTF had concluded arrangements with the Nigeria Immigration Service ” to impose sanctions on these defaulters for breaching the public health protocols, within ambit of the law.”
