According to the NCDC, every traveler must provide a negative PCR test certificate of not more than 72 hours from an accredited service provider at the ports among the pre-boarding checks. With this directive, no matter where you are flying from, port health officials must be furnished with these details.
The NCDC also warns air travel operators who for their personal gains usher in a passenger who does not possess the test certificate which confirms he is not carrying the virus.
Here is the directives outline by the presidential task force, expected to take effect from July 2021.
