Fiji authorities have announced that their country is open to foreign tourists.

The country has had its border closed for almost 2 years due to COVID-19.

The new rules mean that fully vaccinated travelers from select countries including New Zealand and Australia will be able to visit from November

Visitors must also have had a negative Covid test three days before arrival and also take a rapid test on arrival. Tourists and returning residents will still have to undergo a two or three-day hotel confinement.

Tourism Fiji said the announcement has already caused a huge increase in demand.

Prime minister Voreqe Bainimarama said the country was “entirely confident in our ability to manage the risk associated with quarantine-free travel.”

Fiji has been working hard to vaccinate as many people before their border reopens. Currently, 96.6% of the target population of those aged 18 and over have received their first dose, while 80.3% have received both doses.
