The Fijian Government announced, effective 14 February 2023, international travellers to Fiji will no longer be required to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination and travel insurance.
One of the first countries to open its borders in December 2021, Fiji welcomed 636,312 visitors in 2022, a strong recovery surpassing its expected targets. This latest move comes following careful consideration of the global and national COVID-19 situation. As the country evolved towards treating COVID-19 as an endemic, the last set of entry requirements were removed on 14 February 2023.
Tourism Fiji Chief Executive Officer, Brent Hill says, “The industry welcomes the decision and invites the world to come experience Fiji: where happiness comes naturally.”
Previously, all travellers 16 years and above were required to produce proof of full vaccination and travel insurance covering COVID-19.
As reported by the Ministry of Health and Medical Services (MHMS), Fiji’s hospitalisation is low, due to community-wide immunisation and in-country surveillance capacity. Notably, the focus remains on implementing COVID safe measures around those vulnerable to the severe effects of COVID-19.
Therefore, consistent with the experience in other countries with high vaccination rates, Fiji will no longer have any COVID-19 related border health measures.
