Swab test charges apply to children too

Charges for compulsory COVID-19 testing will also apply for children travelling abroad with their parents. Minister of Health Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham bin Haji Jaafar said this in response to a question during a press conference at the Ministry of Health (MoH) yesterday. “It also applies to children, as it’s not about the age, but the test itself,” he said. The minister said outbound travellers from Brunei will have to undergo testing and pay for it, particularly if they are travelling to countries requiring a certificate of negative COVID-19 results.
