The federal government says Nigerians abroad, who wish to be evacuated, must test negative for the coronavirus.
This was contained in a form entitled “COVID-19 Application Form for Nigerians who want to return home” on the website of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM ).
The form states that anyone who intends to return “must get tested for the virus in your country of residence and be issued an authorised health clearance certificate attesting that you are COVID-19 free”.
“This certificate must be presented and authenticated by officials at the airport in your country of departure before you are allowed to board the aircraft,” it said.
“On landing, you will also be on compulsory quarantine for 14 days on arrival in Nigeria, at an NCDC approved location.
