The fees are $10 for Pohnpei and Kosrae and $20 for Chuuk. Please make sure you have cash available as credit cards are not accepted and ATM machines are not available at any of the airports.
Also note that a health certificate may be required if you are arriving from an area experiencing an epidemic.
