The government of Fiji has announced that from 1 May 2022, fully-vaccinated visitors will no longer be required to produce a negative Covid-19 PCR test as a condition of entry.
However, an in-country rapid antigen test (RAT) which must be booked prior to departure and taken within 48-72 hours of arrival in Fiji will still be required. Travellers who test positive will be required to isolate themselves in their hotel for a minimum of seven days.
Fiji has also lowered its minimum age for vaccination, with all visitors over the age of 16 now required to provide evidence they have been ‘fully vaccinated’ with the minimum recommended initial dose of vaccine. At the time of writing, boosters are not required, but are considered ‘additional protection’.
An official announcement from the Fijian government says the changes in the rules have been taken to be ‘in line with best practice for entry requirements among highly vaccinated societies … such as Australia and Singapore, who have also removed COVID-19 testing as an entry prerequisite.’
The pre-Covid RAT test which must be arranged prior to departing for Fiji, can be booked at www.entrytestfiji.com.
