Nigeria has finally decided to join the bandwagon (some might say, a little too late) and restrict entry into the country for travelers from 13 countries (China, Italy, Iran, South Korea, Spain, Japan, France, Germany, the United States, Norway, UK, Netherlands and Switzerland).
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
Travelers from these countries may not be allowed entry into Nigeria. The countries mentioned are those with more than 1,000 cases of Coronavirus.
WHEN WILL THE RESTRICTION TAKE PLACE?
The restriction will take effect starting on March 20 and will be in place until further notice.
WILL AIRLINES STILL BE ALLOWED TO LAND IN NIGERIA?
A few of my followers mentioned that they are stuck in Switzerland as their flight to Lagos have now been cancelled. Rwandair will temporarily stop all flights for 30 days starting from the 21st of March to 20th of April 2020. Cape Verde Airlines suspended all travel for 30 days from the 18th of March.
