- People without QR Code will not be allowed to board flights
- The federal government said this will help avoid the spread of coronavirus
- According to the government, the process of obtaining the code is purely online
As Nigeria continues to look for ways to combat the dreaded coronavirus, passengers without the QR (Quick Response) code will no longer be allowed to board flights.
This was disclosed National Coordinator of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, Dr. Sani Aliyu.
According to the federal government, passengers without the QR whether permanent or temporary will not board flights again.
The government said this will help address the issue of congestion on arrival.
Also, the FG said it will help stop the spread of coronavirus the virus, given the fact that over 4,000 daily passengers arriving Lagos and Abuja.
The portal has three sections, the first has to do with filling the questionnaire and is straightforward, it then takes you to where you will upload your COVID-19 PCR result that should be negative at the point of boarding. At this stage you have two options, either to go ahead and pay or download your QR Code. If you chose to down your temporary QR Code, you can print it and board with it and then come into Nigeria and subsequently pay.
But our strong recommendation is that if you do not want to spend too much time at the airport, go ahead and pay and print out the final QR Code. If you have the final QR Code it takes minutes to clear at the airport. It’s very quick and we have everything online.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 warned Nigerians against complacency even though the country has been reporting fewer cases of the virus in recent months.

“Although Nigeria is no longer in the top five countries by cumulative deaths in Africa, the PTF continues to urge Nigerians to change their attitude of scepticism and nonchalance to the virus.
