After evaluating the COVID-19 situation across the globe, Chinese authorities on Thursday announced fresh travel restrictions for Nigerians and other nationals in Nigeria holding valid Chinese visas or residence permits.

Other countries affected by the new arrangement include the United Kingdom, Belgium, Luxembourg, Philippines and a few others were also affected by the policy.

Holders of diplomatic passports, courtesy or C visas would not be affected by the regulation.

The Embassy of China and Consulate in Nigeria made the disclosure in a public notice on Thursday.

The embassy also said it will no longer issue certified health declaration form for non-Chinese nationals in the country.

The statement was titled, ‘Notice of temporary suspension of entry into China by non-Chinese nationals in Nigeria holding valid Chinese visas or residence permits.’

It read, “Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, China has decided to temporarily suspend entry into China by non-Chinese nationals in Nigeria holding visas or residence permits still valid at the time of this announcement.

“The Chinese Embassy and Consulate in Nigeria will no longer issue a certified health declaration form for the above-mentioned personnel. Entry by holders of diplomatic service, courtesy or C visas will not be affected.

“Foreign nationals visiting China for emergency needs may apply for visas at the Chinese Embassy or Consulate. Entry by non-Chinese nationals in Nigeria with visas issued after November 3, 2020, will not be affected.”

The embassy explained that the suspension was a temporary response necessitated by the current situation of COVID-19.

It added that the measures would be assessed in accordance with the evolving situation “and any adjustment will be announced, accordingly.”
