The federal government has informed international travelers to obtain their COVID-19 results before flying in or out of Nigeria.

Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, spoke on Thursday at the daily briefing of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 in Abuja.

Sirika assured that all preparations have been completed.

He said passengers must register online, pay for COVID-19 test fee and upload the negative result not older than 72 hours before boarding.

The minister reiterated that airlines would be fined $3,500 per passenger without the result.

In addition, such a traveler will be turned back if he or she was a foreigner.

The government is acting on the principle of reciprocity, meaning planes from countries that banned flights from Nigeria will not enter the country.

International flights resume on September 5.
