The Federal Government of Nigeria has revealed that it might soon ban flights from the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The proposed ban follows a new pre-boarding COVID test requirement placed on travellers by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the Netherlands.

According to the Federal Government, the new test may lead to the suspension of flights to those countries.

Under the new requirement, travellers are to do a rapid test at the airports in Lagos and Abuja four hours to their outbound flights.

The Director-General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), Musa Nuhu, complained about the “extra requirement” at the briefing by the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 on Monday, February 1.
