Health Alert: U.S. Embassy Abuja, Nigeria
April 6, 2020

Location:  Abuja, Nigeria

Event:  Scheduled Flights Out of Abuja

The U.S. Embassy in Abuja is in the process of contacting persons who have registered their interest in being placed on an evacuation flight.  The flight is estimated to travel later this week, but we do not have exact information at this time.  After this flight, there are no other flights currently scheduled.  Due to the unprecedented nature of this situation and the worldwide effort to ensure all American Citizens have a chance to return to the United States, U.S. Embassy Abuja is not aware of when Washington, DC would be in a position to charter another aircraft.  U.S. Embassy Abuja urges all persons who are considering evacuation to take advantage of this opportunity.

If you have not yet registered your interest in repatriation flights but are interested in this week’s flight, you must register your interest using this link, Abuja Evacuation Request Form, no later than 9:00 am on Wednesday, April 8.

Each traveler needs to ensure that they supply a valid email address and telephone number at which they can be contacted.  Once contacted, please respond immediately.
