Public health fees/medical certificate fees

These fees are paid by a public food handler or salon operator who goes into direct contact with a person to protect the health interests of the public by council.

How is payment done?

Council contracts a service provider who carries out blood tests on all stomach and skin infections i.e.typhoid, dysentery, diarrhea, hepatitis b etc. on its behalf, a report is done by the service provider showing both the negative and positive results, all the food handlers and salon operators that are found positive are advised to treat and test again until the results are negative and therefore a certificate is issued

When is medical certificate paid for?

Every six months a food handler or salon operator is expected to test and renew their certificate at a fee of 20,000/= paid through IRAS.
