The Nigeria Immigration Service, NIS, has strongly advised the 100 banned passengers, who violated the Federal Government’s COVID-19 protocols to comply with the six-month travel restriction order.

NIS also said that the affected passengers have been notified and prevented from Passport re-issuance and travelling outside the country.

Sunday James, the NIS Public Relations Officer, disclosed this in a statement in Abuja on Monday.

“In line with the Federal Government’s directives on temporary travel restrictions on 100 passengers due to non-compliance to the mandatory Day-7 post-arrival, COVID-19 PCR Test by all in-bound travellers, the Comptroller-General of Nigeria Immigration Service, Muhammad Babandede has directed the relevant formations to ensure immediate compliance with the travel restriction order.

“The 100 defaulting passengers have been restricted for a period of six (6) months, from January 1st 2021 to June 30th 2021. “All the affected passengers have been notified and will be prevented from Passport re-issuance and travelling 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 read.

Meanwhile, the Federal Government had a few days ago published the passport numbers of the 100 passengers, who failed to undergo the mandatory COVID-19 test after returning to Nigeria.
