The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has introduced the sale of E-tags, which are now required for entry into Nigeria’s 24 federal airports. This new measure starts today, May 17, as announced on FAAN’s official X handle on Friday.


This decision follows the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meetings held earlier this week, which approved 21 policies and projects to enhance the economy, attract investments, and streamline business operations. Among these, the FEC mandated that all users of federal airports must pay tolls at the gates without exception, including high-ranking officials like the President and Vice President.


FAAN’s announcement highlights that this E-tag initiative aligns with a recent presidential directive, aiming to ensure all airport users comply with the new toll requirement. This move comes during a period of economic strain caused by subsidy removal and the naira’s flotation, prompting the Nigeria Labour Congress to push for a higher minimum wage, further challenging the government.


Motorists without E-tags can still enter airports by paying cash at the access gates, though non-compliant drivers will be denied entry. FAAN’s statement provided details on where to obtain E-tags at Lagos and Abuja international airports, including contact information for further assistance.


In Lagos, E-tags are available at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport at the Office of the Head of Department of Commercial Operations, Terminal 1, 5th floor, or by calling 08033713796 or 08023546030. In Abuja, they can be obtained at the HOD Commercial Office at the General Aviation Terminal, or by calling 08034633527 or 08137561615.
