The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has ordered all airlines operating international and regional flights into Nigeria to issue Health Declaration Forms to their passengers and crew members before arriving Nigerian airports.
This directive was given Thursday morning in a statement by NCAA’s General Manager, Public Relations, Sam Adurogboye.
Adurogboye noted that the warning is coming on the heels of the failure of some airlines operating international and regional flights into Nigeria to provide Health Declaration Forms.
A letter to this effect has been issued to all airlines and other stakeholders, the statement said Thursday.
“In view of the above, Airlines are to remind passengers to provide factual address and phone numbers to enhance contact tracing in case there is need to do so,” the statement added.
The Health Declaration forms (passenger self-reporting forms) will be collected and evaluated by the personnel of Port Health Services on arrival of passengers and crew members.
