Junction conditions are studied at the boundary of a sphere consisting of a charged viscous fluid with outgoing heat and radiation flux. The motion is anisotropic and the matching is done with the exterior Reissner-Nordström-Vaidya metric. A general relation in terms of the energy-momentum tensor componentsT 1 1 andT 4 1 is satisfied at the boundary hypersurface and this relation gives appropriate physical conditions in different special cases, some of which were obtained previously.
