The following Australia travel and border changes are effective from Friday, 14th November 2014 as part of a national approach:

  • Inflight announcement re Ebola procedures will commence on all international flights arriving in Australia.
  • Temperature checks of travellers arriving from Ebola-affected areas (Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and the DRC) will commence from Friday 14th November 2015 at Melbourne Airport.
  • All arriving passengers will be have to complete a check list indicating if they have been to an Ebola-affected area in the last 21 days.
  • The Australian Government is recommending that people reconsider their need to travel to any of the Ebola-affected areas mentioned above.
  • All Passengers from Ebola-affected areas will be subjected to enhanced screening that will result in a risk assessment being made.  Depending on the passenger’s activities while in the Ebola-affected area, restrictions may be put in place for 21 days.  These restrictions are based on expert recommendations from the Communicable Disease Network Australia.
  • All Passengers from Ebola-affected areas will be given a thermometer kit at the airport to monitor their temperature twice a day for 21 days along with instructions on actions to take as required.
  • Adults that have travelled to an Ebola-affected area and have been assessed as low-risk following screening can return to work.
  • All children that have travelled to an Ebola-affected area cannot return to school or childcare for 21 days from departure from an Ebola-affected area.

How does this all impact Nigeria?

As you are aware, Nigeria was declared Ebola free on 20 Oct 2014.  Nigeria is NOT on the current list of Ebola-affected areas.

No restriction on passengers arriving from Nigeria assuming Nigeria remains Ebola-free.

So far as travelling to Nigeria this Christmas is concerned, there should be no significant issues regarding Ebola but do please exercise other precautions as required when travelling to Nigeria

Seek travel health advice from your GP before you go.



President's Message Print E-mail

Welcome to the Nigerian Society of Victoria, Australia. We are a not-for-profit organisation and our mission is to provide a platform for interaction, networking, education and capacity building for Nigerians living in the State of Victoria. We also work in collaboration with other communities in Victoria and Australia at large to achieve mutual goals while promoting the image of Nigeria.

We welcome friends of Nigerians and anyone that is interested in Nigeria and its affairs.

One of our objectives is to engage and empower our youth to provide an opportunity to socialise, network and become actively involved in the affairs of the organisation. We believe that young people are the “future” and we would like to encourage them to be active members of the community now so that they can contribute to decision making that will ensure positive impact on the lives of everyone in the future.
I call on all Nigerians living in Victoria and Australia at large to embrace the organisation and get involved in its activities. If you are not a member of the society, we encourage you to become one. There are lots of benefits in being a member.

Fred Alale
