Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority asks airlines to board travelers to Nigeria without QR code

The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has asked all foreign airlines operating in and out of Nigeria not to deny Nigerians boarding over their inability to show evidence of payment for the day-7 COVID-19 PCR test or to generate a paid QR code.

The Director-General of the NCAA, Captain Musa Nuhu, announced this in a letter issued to all airlines operating in and out of the country.

He said the decision was taken in view of the challenges some travellers to Nigeria experience while trying to fill their Health and Travel history into Nigeria’s International Travel portal (NITP).

According to Nuhu, the cumbersomeness of generating the PCR code after payment of the statutory fees has led to many travelers from Nigeria and into Nigeria being denied boarding by airlines.
