Foreigners arriving in Papua New Guinea will be required to wear ankle monitors as part of their Covid-19 quarantine process.
The monitors will cost the wearer $US28.
The National newspaper reported the Pandemic Response director, Daoni Esorom, saying expatriates would pay for the monitors.
Esorom said the exercise was approved by the Response Controller, David Manning, to be tested for a month.
"The controller approved the engagement of TrackCo to track them while in quarantine to ensure they adhere to the guidelines," Dr Esorom said.
He said PNG citizens and residents were exempt for now.
PNG has recorded seven Covid-19 related deaths and nearly 600 confirmed cases of the coronavirus so far.
