No masks, no tests - getting into Fiji just got a whole lot easier.
The beloved Pacific Island nation has gone to great lengths to implement top level safety standards, providing quarantine free travel to fully-vaccinated travelers from all over the world. Over 93% of Fiji’s adult population is fully vaccinated, one of the most highly vaccinated tourism destinations in the world.
Now, they’ve dropped all entry testing requirements for arrivals, but remember to keep your proof of vaccination on hand, along with your insurance documentation; we still have to show this at check-in before our flights to Your Paradise.
We can breathe a little easier on the plane, too; Fiji Airways, our partner airline, have removed their mask mandates. Heads up though - we’ll still need them for Nadi Airport, where masks are still required.
“As we approach the school holidays and festive season, we are excited to make international travel even easier for… a holiday in paradise,” said Fiji Airways CEO and Managing Director, Andre Viljoen.
Fiji Airways was awarded Diamond certification, the highest standard for travel safeguards in a COVID-19 world, offered only to airlines that provide hospital-grade health safety measures. In addition, only six airlines worldwide have achieved 5-Star COVID-19 Airline Safety Rating from SKYTRAX, with Fiji Airways being one of them.
For arrivals who test positive, the country has also reduced the mandatory isolation period from seven days to five days.
“This is another exciting step towards normalcy for tourism in Fiji,” says Brent Hill, CEO of Tourism Fiji. “We welcomed a record number of visitors in July, which showed an 82% recovery from pre-pandemic levels. Now, with the removal of the required in-country test, travelers can continue enjoying our islands with even more peace of mind.”
