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

WHY THE NEW CARD?

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

HOW MUCH

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

STEP BY STEP

STEP 1:Visit http://www.yellowcardnigeria.com 

“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.

      It was useful. Thanks, though I could not print my remote receipt after payment as it kept on forever and I have to terminate the print.

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