I was advised by the local Nigerian Embassy that I did not need a
"Yellow Vaccination Card" as the country I come from is safe.
Upon arrival which was swift, both Immigration and Customs took about 3 minutes I was asked to produce a Yellow Card by a suspicious looking individual.
I was "interviewed" by a tired looking lady just by the customs and advised that I needed to have a Yellow Fever Vaccination and that the fine for not having the Card as well as the cost of visiting the hospital would be USD 150 minimum.
She then asked me if I would like to enter the country because she could see that I was healthy and that she was "kind hearted"...
I produced 10 USD and she acted as if I had just insulted her, it cost me a 100 USD...and she was still muttering on about that I should visit the hospital but that she a was just to kind hearted.
My other collegues who had Cards with them were stopped as well,
they were told that they had either fake cards, or that the cards were no longer valid.
Seasoned Africa travellers they just kept on walking and shrugged the "Inspectors" off.
So, sorry about this long winded story...but if you are on your way to Lagos, make sure that you have the Card with you and that it is updated if necessary.
I will have sombody meet me at the Gate when I visit next.
Otherwise, must say that despite the traffic, loved the city, it's
highly energetic people and generally positive atmosphere
everywhere I went.
