CHATTOGRAM: Corona test through RT-PCR machine started at Chattogram Shah Amanat International Airport on Monday.

With this, the complexities over corona test of the United Arab Emirates (UAE)-bound passengers have been removed.

The lab was inaugurated on Sunday and the corona test was introduced from Monday, said Chattogram Divisional Health Director Dr Hasan Shahriar Kabir.

He said the fee for the test has been fixed at Tk 1,600 per passenger. The expatriates registered with the Expatriates’ Welfare Ministry will get the service free of cost as the ministry will pay it.

The non-registered passengers will have to pay the fee, he said.

The flight from Chattogram to UAE was scheduled to begin from Monday night, said the director.

Four private organisations were engaged to provide the service at the airport, he added.
