A FORMAL process for the Out Board Motor (OBM) application for exemption to travel to Honiara from Central Province for necessary reasons had been set up.
This was announced by the Central Islands Province, Provincial Disaster Operations Committee (CIPPDOC).
Provincial Disaster Officer for Central Islands Province, Herrick Savusi explained, that under the process the OBM owners must do a written submission to the PDOC for approval.
And the following requirements must be met during the application.
All travelling passengers including the driver must be tested negative and present a vaccination card indicating 2 jabs.
Once the required criteria are met, Provincial Health Emergency Operation Center (PHEOC) will send a submission to the National Health Emergency Operation Center (NHEOC) which corresponds to the National
