Issue date:

OUR island paradise of Fiji, known for its incredible scenery and warm, welcoming people, 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 travelers 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.  

“It’s been almost two years since we welcomed international visitors. And in these two years, we’ve struggled, we’ve adapted, and we’ve prepared, said Hon. Faiyaz Koya, Minister for Tourism.  

“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.” 

Fiji will still have entry requirements in place to ensure the utmost safety of both visitors and locals. These include being a fully vaccinated traveler from a “Travel Partner” country such as Australia, New Zealand, United States of America, United Kingdom, the United Arab Emirates, Canada, Qatar, Germany, Spain, France, the Republic of Korea, Singapore, Switzerland, Japan and most Pacific Island Countries and Territories.  

Travelers from these countries will need to provide a negative PCR test taken less than 3 days prior to departure from home country and fulfil 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 is, as always, highly recommended. For more information on country-specific travel requirements, please visit www.fiji.travel. 

“We are ecstatic that Fiji will open its borders to international visitors before the end of the year,” says Tourism Fiji 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.” 

Tourism Fiji have been preparing for this moment.  Travellers can book and travel in confidence with the Care Fiji Commitment, where they 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.   Tourism Fiji started working on this programme when the pandemic first arrived in Fiji.  Now we have over 206 CFC approved businesses, and over 320 nominated Wellness Ambassadors across Fiji.   

Tourism Fiji is also working on re-opening marketing plans and have changed their message to Fiji’s Open to tell the world the good news.  This has also been shared across the tourism industry to help the whole industry unite on a single message – “Fiji’s Open: 1st Dec”. Land and air travel packages will soon be available to book, however, travellers can reserve their flights now on www.fijiairways.com and browse and book resort stays at www.fiji.travel
