CHANGES TO ENTRY REQUIREMENTS FROM 7TH APRIL, 2022
As of the 7th April, travellers no longer need a pre-booked 3 night stay at a Care Fiji Commitment hotel.

This has been replaced by a simple pre-booked RAT test for within 48-72hrs of their arrival. All travellers must book/prepay their RAT test on the following portal:
https://www.entrytestfiji.com/

From 7th April, Fiji will welcome fully vaccinated travellers from anywhere in the world. They now only need to show evidence of the following at check-in:

• Proof of full vaccination
• Pre-Departure negative COVID test (PCR test 48 hours before or verified RAT test 24 hours before)
• Travel Insurance
• Pre-booked RAT test for within 48-72hrs of arrival in Fiji.

Travellers (foreign nationals entering Fiji for a holiday) must have proof of insurance for COVID-19 coverage. Many travel insurance companies now include this coverage in their standard policies but if yours does not, you can also purchase one online prior to travel with Fiji Care. For enquiries you can also email them at customercare@fijivisitorsinsurance.com

The Fiji Care travel insurance will only apply in the unlikely case that you test positive for COVID-19 in Fiji and cover any costs related to that event such as isolation, hospitalisation, testing etc. It does not cover any costs related to existing entry/exit protocols such as required tests.

Travel insurance is not mandatory for returning residents, but it is highly recommended. 

✈ Arrival in Fiji

Upon arrival, travellers can holiday safely with a peace of mind and enjoy the best of Fiji knowing that when sticking to Care Fiji Committed businesses, everyone they interact with will be fully vaccinated.

Fulfil the pre-booked Fiji Entry RAT test at a registered resort or city/town facility within 48-72 hours of arrival in Fiji.

• Masks are optional but recommended for crowded indoor and outdoor public places (eg restaurants, tour buses, shops) 

 Social distancing is optional where possible (2m) 

 Wash or sanitise your hands frequently 

Most people in Fiji are vaccinated but there are still some Fijians (youths, elderly and sickly) who remain unvaccinated and vulnerable. Whenever possible please avoid ‘low vaccination zones’.

These areas will change as vaccination rates consistently increase across Fiji.

✈ Departing Fiji

Entry requirements and border controls are in place around the world. Make sure to familiarize with the country’s requirements before departure. Entry requirements may change at short notice, hence travellers are advised to check the latest travel advisory issued by the relevant local authorities before departing.

Depending on your country’s return requirements, you will need to be tested for COVID-19 before you fly home. Costs for a Rapid Antigen test starts from approximately $30FJD . Some countries require a PCR test which starts from approximately $200 FJD. Please check with your hotel as testing costs will vary.

Please take note of age groups that need to be tested as per your country’s requirements.

All RAT and PCR test requirements needed for your return home will be managed at your hotel. Speak to them about your tests when you check in.
