LAGOS, Dec 12 (Reuters) – Nigeria on Monday removed COVID-19 testing requirements for international travellers and it was no longer mandatory to wear masks on flights and inside airport buildings, the airlines regulator said.
In a notice to airlines, the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority said travellers to and from Nigeria did not need to undergo COVID-19 irrespective of their vaccination status.
The authority said travellers above 60 years and those with comorbidities were encouraged to use face masks.
Nigeria has recorded 266,381 COVID-19 cases since the start of the pandemic and 3,155 deaths.
