The Prime Minister has arrived in Fiji to a lavish ceremony.
Ardern landed in Suva on Monday evening where she was greeted by Fijian Prime Minister, Frank Bainimarama.
The New Zealand national anthem was played and Ardern inspected the local military.
The trip is her first to the country as Prime Minister and only the second from a Kiwi PM since the Fijian coup in 2006.
Hundreds of locals had come out to line the streets in an effort to see Ardern.
Ardern will also attend a state dinner, which also marks 50 years of independence for Fiji.
She will be in Fiji for 3 days before heading to Sydney.
