But must be done by GP. So while I was initially pleased I think it makes it less acceptable.
A GP or a medical facility?

I haven’t actually found that in the text anywhere. The Home Affairs web site still refers to PCR testing.

Aslong as the O/S GP or medical facility didn't charge exorbitant consultation fees &/or insist on using their RATs. Another fee on top.
In the end possibly only shortening the timeline.

If we can use RAT's here without GP eyes over our shoulder, why not returning O/S.

About time, it will come down to 5 days soon I’m sure.

If we use the same medical facility who did our arrival tests then they will be $FJ50 each for them to come to us. This versus $FJ250 each at the resort or $FJ150 each plus $FJ200 for transport to their facility.

The PCRs would have been cheaper if we stuck to our original plan and gone to Nadi. ie $FJ150 each at the hotel.
