COVID19 testing fee
President Nana Akufo-Addo, in his address, stated that all travellers coming into the country by air would have to pay a COVID19 testing fee of $150 (¢868).
President Akufo Addo also added that the mandatory COVID19 test that will be conducted for all passengers coming into the country forms part of directives outlined by the Ministries of Aviation and Health to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus and ensure that the deadly disease is not imported into the country.
After paying a COVID19 testing fee of $150 (¢868), the test will take a maximum of 30 minutes for a particular passenger to get his or her results.
Ghana has now recorded a total of 44,298 cases, 42,963 recoveries, and 276 deaths.
