๐Ÿ›ก๏ธ Travel safety for Nigeria

Do not travel

Recent large-scale protests and violence in Nigeria resulted in state-wide curfews being imposed in Lagos and several other locations. While the daytime curfew has now been lifted in Lagos, curfew conditions can change at short notice (see 'Safety'). You should exercise maximum caution due to the continuing potential for civil unrest and threats to personal safety. If you arrive at an international airport, you must keep your boarding pass and baggage claim with you due to COVID-19 contact tracing, baggage claim checks, and proof of travel requirements with local authorities. Weย continue to advise: Do not travelย to Nigeriaย due to the health risks from the COVID-19 pandemic and the significant disruptions to global travel.
