PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (Trinidad Express) – In what can be described as the first person to be banned from Trinidad and Tobago following new rules implemented last week as the country responds to the current Ebola threat, a Nigerian woman was turned away when she landed at Piarco International Airport on Friday.
According to a CNC3 report, the woman landed at Piarco that afternoon. She was interviewed by a health official at the airport after she disembarked from a Copa Airlines flight which had originated from Panama and stopped in Venezuela.
Being a Nigerian national whose journey began in Nigeria, she was grouped among those who will not be allowed into Trinidad and Tobago following the ban which went into effect last week.
The other countries from which travel to Trinidad and Tobago has been restricted are Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Democratic Republic of Congo.
