The UK had placed Nigeria on its red list, introducing a pre-departure COVID-19 test requirement for all in-bound travellers and arrivals from the country.

Travellers who had been in a red list country 10 days before arriving in the country have been required to isolate for 10 days in a quarantine hotel and take a COVID-19 test.

A temporary suspension on reviewing and issuing visitor visa applications from all red list countries was also introduced.
