After nearly two years of being closed, Fiji has announced they are reopening and are ready to welcome visitors, starting in December 2021.
Fiji will be reopening with entry requirements in place, including required vaccines, providing negative RT-PCR tests taken within 72 hours prior to departure from your home country, taking a rapid test within 48 hours after arriving in Fiji, and fulfilling any testing requirement from your home country. Children under the age of 18 who are not yet vaccinated will be able to travel to Fiji when with a vaccinated adult.
“We are ecstatic that Fiji will open its borders to international visitors before the end of the year,” says Tourism Fiji’s CEO Brent Hill. “This is the moment we have been planning for nearly two years now and I can assure the world that Fiji is safe and ready to welcome you back. The islands are just as beautiful – if not more beautiful – than ever and the locals just as warm and friendly. Fiji is the vacation the world needs and deserves right now, and we can finally offer that again starting December.”
Fiji and its 300 islands have reached more than 80 percent vaccination rate of its eligible population, and there is now a certified program, including resorts, transportation, and experiences, where staff will be 100 percent vaccinated.
“It’s been almost two years since we welcomed international visitors,” says Fiji Minister for Tourism, Hon. Faiyaz Koya. “And in these two years, we’ve struggled, we’ve adapted, and we’ve prepared. Today, our national airline is ready, our hotels and tour providers are ready, and Fijians are ready to safely welcome the world back. We are ready to let happiness find you again.”
