UK Changes travel rules for fully vaccinated travellers from Nigeria

Effective from Monday 11 October, 2021, the United Kingdom has permitted fully vaccinated travellers from Nigeria into their borders.

Travellers from the West African country would not be mandated to provide pre-departure negative PCR tests or self isolate provided they are fully vaccinated. However, they would be required to book and pay for a test on their second day of arrival.

This development follows the scrapping of the traffic light system, which has been replaced with a single red list.

British authorities stated that they recognised the following vaccines: AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Moderna and Janssen.

Travellers would be required to have gotten their two doses of the vaccines at least 14 days prior to arrival in England.

The certificate issued by the National Primary Heath Care Development Agency of Nigeria is recognised in the UK.

Travellers into the UK who have not been fully vaccinated are still required to take a pre0departure Covid-19 test 72 hours before travel, book and pay for the day 2 and day 8 tests after arrival as well as complete a passenger locator form within 48 hours of arrival Non-vaccinated travellers must also quarantine for 10 days on arrival.
