WHEN IN FIJI:
- As part of Fiji’s enhanced surveillance and monitoring exercise, travellers may undergo random RAT upon arrival.
|Travellers who develop COVID-19 symptoms will be required to test. Travellers who test positive must isolate for a minimum of 5 days. Should the traveller or the insurance provider require a confirmatory PCR result, this will be facilitated at the cost of the traveller.
All primary/close contacts of the confirmed case will not be required to serve a quarantine period. However, all primary/close contacts need to monitor themselves for COVID-19 symptoms during this period and immediately self-isolate for 5 days if present and inform relevant authorities.
- All national public health measures remain promoted by the Fijian Government.
- Cruise: For cruise ships and commercial vessels with sick travellers or crew onboard, medical personnel or crew/shipping agents are required to inform BHPU via email: [email protected] or call +679 6722054 before arriving at a maritime port in Fiji for clearance.
- Due to increased surveillance efforts for health threats, you may be subject to a secondary screening procedure by BHPU officials based on the port(s) you have visited in the last 30 days, transited, or originally departed from.
Travellers may require COVID-19 test results to return to their countries of origin or another destination. The test booking can be facilitated by the hotel on advance notice or through Entry Test Fiji.
If transiting, you may do so if you have a valid outward ticket within 72 hours of arrival and must meet the requirements for entry into the country of your final destination, including Fiji’s proof of vaccination requirements for arrivals into Fiji.
