The government of Fiji has stated that international visitors will no longer be required to present confirmation of Covid-19 vaccination and travel insurance.

In 2022, Fiji attracted 636,312 visitors, a significant increase that exceeded the country’s anticipated goals.

This current action is a result of the Covid-19 Risk Mitigation Taskforce’s (CRMT) comprehensive evaluation of the global and national Covid-19 situation, and it applies to both air and maritime arrivals.

Earlier this month, the final set of entry requirements were eliminated as the nation moved towards treating Covid-19 as an endemic.

Brent Hill, chief executive officer of Tourism Fiji, stated, “The industry welcomes the decision to remove all protocols, restrictions, vaccination requirements and Covid-19 tests – and invites the world to come and experience Fiji: where happiness comes naturally.”

He stated, “We still strongly encourage travellers to have travel insurance and take the necessary precautions we all know well to stay healthy and maximise their fun in Fiji.”

Previously, all travellers aged 16 and older were required to provide evidence of a full vaccination certificate and travel insurance covering Covid-19.

As indicated by the Ministry of Health and Medical Services (MHMS), hospitalisations remain low as a result of the country’s community-wide immunisation and surveillance capabilities.

Notably, the focus continues to be on establishing Covid-19 safety measures around persons susceptible to the virus’s severe consequences.

The MHMS also reports that 95 percent of the adult population is believed to be vaccinated, with booster doses continuing to be delivered to eligible individuals across the islands.

Consistent with the experiences of other countries with high immunisation rates, Fiji will no longer implement any Covid-19-related border health precautions.

Border authorities will continue to evaluate border health measures and maintain community surveillance for early warning of new concerns, all while supporting socioeconomic recovery.
