Hi, I only spent 6 nights. Truth be told, ignore the NCDC/PTF guidelines. No one is bothered.

Go back to the website and click on, I believe, "get QR code." Select permanent QR code. A new window will open where you will enter passport no., date of travel, etc. Your QR code will be generated here. You may either print it or save it on your phone. You will have to show it, with your Covid-19 result, before you board and to the port health when you land at the airport.

Thank you. Apparently, you are allowed to board without the QR code. The website is having issues so they made it optional Until they fix the issues with the website.

It is also not compulsory you pay online for the COVID test even though I paid online. You can make your payment At the airport In Nigeria when you land.

Yeah, I didn't pay pre-boarding, so I generated the temporary (rather than permanent) QR Code.

I hope the Nigeria immigration officials didn't collect your passport on arrival?

They only collect the passport to make a scan of the data page and send to NCDC. If they are really making use of it, is another thing at the end of the day.

Thank you very much for your reply to my enquiry. One more question please, did you do the test here in Nigeria? Since you only spent 6 nights. If yes, how did you go about it since the protocol stipulates 7 days before test should be carried out. If No, how did you navigate through immigration on returning to board flight back tp the UK.Thanks in anticipation of your reply may God almighty bless you abundantly

I think Divine88 failed to show up for the test because he said he spent 6 nights. The laboratory will send text messages to remind people who are to do the test on the 7th day of which he might not recieve it since he left already. On the 14th day they will forward his name to NCDC for him to face a penalty. So because he's no longer in Nigeria, he won't be there to face (maybe) suspension of travel or them including him on a travel watch list for 6 months and he won't be allowed foreign travel on this period. But then this is Nigeria we are talking about and everything is possible. Its one thing to enact a law but another thing to enforce same law.

Before flying to Nigeria, I did a test which I uploaded onto the Nigerian Port Health website. A QR code was generated. Mind you before the QR code is generated u need to pay 50400 Naira and also choose the date and laboratory where u want to do the test in Nigeria.
I know I wasn’t staying too long in Nigeria, I decided to do my test 2 days before am to leave Nigeria.
At the departure, no one asked u about the test, you are only asked about the UK public Health locator form which you are to fill before arriving in the UK.

Mr Man. You are so wrong. Am replying you as I don’t want your comments to mislead anyone.
First, I did another test in Nigeria 4 days after arriving.
Second, no one at departure ask you for any test, you are only ask for the UK public Health locator form which you need to fill before arriving the UK.
So for travellers to the UK, u only need to show you’ve fill, completed and print/show the UK public Health locator form
Re: Nigerian Airspace Reopening: Share Your Travel Experience Post-lockdown by Divine88: 9:29am On Sep 19, 2020
My Experience travelling to Nigeria from the UK and returning to UK.

1. You need to do Covid test( NHS offer free test) which must be negative.
2. Upload your test results into the Nigerian Port health portal https://nitp.ncdc.gov.ng/onboarding/homepage
3. You will be given a QR code, for this code to be generated u need to pay 50400 Naira online and also choose the date and laboratory in Nigeria where u want to have your test.
Without the QR code, the airlines will not let you board
4. Arriving Nigeria, they ask you about the QR code.
No one holds your passport.

Departure to the UK
1. No one cares about your test results ( but u can still do it oo) You only need to fill and complete the UK public Health locator form

https://www.gov.uk/provide-journey-contact-details-before-travel-uk?

2. U need that before u board the plane and also when u arrive at immigrations in the UK

You don’t need to wait. Go online and find a covid test centre close to you. All na by slot ooo. You must keep on refreshing your page to find the nearest testing centre to you.
Mind you the British populace and government are complaining there is no enough testing materials.
Just keep on refreshing you will find something.
Results is sent to you via SMS and email. It takes 24 - 48 hours max
