The United Kingdom has restricted travel from Nigeria in an attempt to check the spread of the Omicron COVID-19 variant.

In a recent travel update, Nigeria was added to the red list, a move the UK explains as temporary. People travelling from countries on the red list will not be allowed into the UK unless they are citizens or residents. UK citizens and residents who attempt to enter the UK from countries on the red list will be subjected to COVID-19 testing and required to pay for a 10-day stay at a quarantine facility.
