Proof of vaccination status

You can use the UK’s proof of COVID-19 recovery and vaccination record to demonstrate your vaccination record when entering Niger. Your NHS appointment card from vaccination centres is not designed to be used as proof of vaccination and should not be used to demonstrate your vaccination status.
If you’re not fully vaccinated
Travellers who have not been vaccinated against COVID-19 must present a negative COVID-19 PCR test certificate taken within 72 hours before arrival to the airport authorities. Before travelling, you should register and upload your PCR test results online on the Trusted Travel site. Unvaccinated travellers will need to quarantine for 7 days.
