Fiji to reopen to internatio­nal travellers in December


On October 10, 2021, the country’s Prime Minister Frank Bainimaram­a announced that after nearly two years of being closed, its borders will once again be opened to internatio­nal visitors from December 1, 2021.

This official announceme­nt comes off the heels of Fiji reaching its goal to get 80 per cent of its eligible population vaccinated with both doses. While travel restrictio­ns will be lifted in December, travellers from India keen to visit Fiji shores may need to wait a little longer due to the continued travel restrictio­ns in place between the two countries.

Travellers to Fiji must be fully vaccinated (children under 18 can travel with a vaccinated adult) from a ‘Travel Partner’ country (defined as one with high vaccinatio­n rates and lowtest positivity rates), as well as providing a negative PCR test taken 72-hours prior to departure. Once they arrive on Fiji’s shores, these travellers can holiday in designated travelsafe areas, where they can enjoy the best of Fiji knowing that everyone they interact with will be fully vaccinated.
