In preparation for International flight resumption, the Aviation Minister, Hadi Sirika, has said passengers are to pay for COVID-19 test on arrival at the airport
In a report obtained from the ministry’s Twitter account, @fmaviationng on Tuesday, the Minister said a portal would be opened for passengers to pay for another Covid-19 test to be done on arrival.
While stating the expectations of the Federal Government from the air passengers ahead of the resumption of international flights on August 29, 2020, Sirika stated that passengers must take a Covid-19 test wherever they are coming from, adding that it should be done very close to departure dates.
According to him; “a portal will also be opened for passengers to pay for another Covid-19 test to be done eight days after arrival in Nigeria.”
“International passengers will also fill in health questionnaires online, and hand them in at the point of entry, instead of filling the forms on the aircraft or upon arrival.
“Non-pharmaceutical measures including physical distancing, wearing of nose masks, washing of hands, and temperature checks will remain in place.
Recall that on Monday, the Federal Government had announced the international flight resumption with effect from August 29, 2020.
