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.

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.
