Fiji Plans December 1 Border Reopening
Fiji will be open to visitors once again starting this December.
After nearly two years of being closed to the outside world, Fiji is more than ready to safely welcome its travellers back. The 333 islands are as beautiful as ever, brimming with idyllic turquoise waters, soft white sand beaches, and the vibrant “Bula Spirit” for which Fiji is known.
This official government announcement comes on the heels of Fiji reaching its goal of 80% vaccination of the eligible population with both doses.
While travel restrictions will be lifted in December, entry requirements will remain in place.
These include being a fully vaccinated traveller, providing a negative RT-PCR test taken 72 hours prior to departure from home country, taking a rapid test 48 hours after arriving at their resort, and fulfilling any obligation to take an additional test prior to returning back home, based on individual home country requirements. Unvaccinated children under the age of 18 will be able to travel to Fiji accompanied by a vaccinated adult. Travel insurance, as always, is highly recommended.
Tourism Fiji’s CEO Brent Hill said: “We are ecstatic that Fiji will open its borders to international visitors by the end of the year. 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 travelers 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.”
Travellers and advisors can book in confidence with the Care Fiji Commitment, where travelers can stay in certified resorts, use certified transportation and experiences, and be assured that all tourism businesses they come in to contact with have a 100% vaccinated staff.
The Care Fiji Commitment is a World Health Organization-approved program that has been recognized by the World Travel and Tourism Council who declared Fiji as a certified “Safe Travels” destination.
Travellers can fly direct from the U.S. to Fiji safely with Fiji Airways, who have been awarded the Apex Diamond certification for safety and the Skytrax 5-star COVID19 Airline safety rating.
