The United Kingdom (UK) accepting Nigerian Covid-19 vaccine certificates from fully vaccinated travellers.

In an updated statement on its website on Thursday, the UK government added Nigeria to the list of countries with approved vaccines.

It stated that fully vaccinated travellers from Nigeria will be able to enter England from Monday, October 11, 2021, without the need to provide a pre-departure test or undertake a day 8 test or self-isolate for ten days.

Before now, fully vaccinated travellers from Nigeria still need to need to self-isolate for ten days.

“From Monday, October 11, 2021, fully vaccinated travellers from Nigeria will be able to enter England without the need to provide a pre-departure test or undertake a day 8 test or self-isolate for 10 days, although we still need to book and pay for a day 2 test. This policy applies to those fully vaccinated with AstraZeneca (including Covidshield), Pfizer, Moderna and Janssen (Johnson and Johnson),” the statement reads.

“A traveller must t be able to prove that he or she have been fully vaccinated under a vaccination programme and have a valid proof of vaccination recognised by the British Government (for Nigeria, the certificates with valid QR codes as issued by Nigeria’s National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) are recognised).”
