UK scraps COVID-19 test, quarantine for Nigerian travellers, others

Nigerians traveling to the United Kingdom will no longer be required to show evidence of COVID-19 test or proof of vaccination as a pre-condition for entering into the country.
This advisory is contained in the ‘Travel Abroad’ guide published on the UK government website.

The new rule comes into effect from Friday, March 18, 2022.

“If you will arrive in England from abroad after 4am, Friday 18 March, you do NOT need to: take any COVID-19 tests – before you travel or after you arrive; fill in a UK passenger locator form before you travel.

“This will apply whether you are vaccinated or not.

“You also will not need to quarantine when you arrive, in line with current rules,” the new guideline reads.

The same rule also applies to those traveling to Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
