RTK antigen test to cost no more than RM60 for KKIA’s international arrivals

KOTA KINABALU: The State Government has decided that the Rapid Test Kit (RTK) antigen test cost should not be more than RM60 for international flight arrivals at the Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA).”The State Government agrees that RM160 for each test is too high so we have decided that it should not be more than RM60,” said Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor (pic).At the Federal level, the cost would be RM100 for Malaysian and RM160 for non-Malaysian to do RTK-antigen test arriving on international flights.

“However, we in Sabah decided that it will cost not more than RM60 for all international arrivals.“This is the most suitable and will be a relief to the visitors. After more than two years we are now very eager to welcome tourists to come,” he said, Wednesday.

The Chief Minister was responding to the Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (MATTA) President Datuk Tan Kok Liang’s plea on the cost of the tests imposed on international arrivals.
