Scanned and e-mailed copies of the certificates required have been sufficient in the past rather than also sending certified copies.
Dr. Everest Nkire, Subdivisional Medical Officer at Taveuni Hospital, has given Loloma Foundation a formal letter of invitation from the Ministry of Health for the Taveuni visitors. We will provide that for all the licensee applicants for Taveuni.
Navutu Stars and the Village Chief of Yaqeta Island will provide a letter of invitation to Loloma Foundation in lieu of a Ministry letter.
