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.
