Intending travellers are reminded that they are required to pay the test fee of two thousand five hundred dalasi (D2,500.00) at the Eco Bank The Gambia Ltd, before sample is collected at any of the two designated sites (Independence Stadium and around Brusubi turn table). Every traveller MUST present proof of payment (receipt) at sample collection site, before his or her required bio/personal data for the electronic transmission is recorded.
