Yellow Fever Card in Nigeria: How to Get it in 2019?


The federal government has introduced E-Yellow card in order to stop touts from hawking and selling fake cards to passengers at international airports in the country. I personally have had my experience with touts at the Lagos international airport trying to sell fake yellow fever cards for N3k.

Aedes aegypti mosquito


The new yellow fever card will cost N2000 and will need to be paid online via card payment.


STEP 1:Visit 

“STEP 2: click on Register

“STEP 3: Fill in your personal information and click on submit button.

“STEP 4: Click on Payment button, generate your Remita Retrival Receipt (RRR) code and pay the sum of N2,000 online (or go to the bank).

“STEP 5: Take the payment receipt along with your international passport to any Port Health Services Office to get vaccinated and obtain the yellow card.”

Hope you found this information useful. Leave a comment if you did

      I don’t believe you need a valid passport for a Yellow Fever card.

    I got a yellow card in 2014. Does the card expires because it is not written on it?

      Yellow fever cards are for life. They do not expire so your card is valid.
