Fiji is “more than ready” to welcome visitors back, according to its tourism board.
Starting Dec. 1, the islands will reopen to fully vaccinated travelers who test negative for COVID-19 within 72 hours of departure, with PCR test. A rapid test will also be required within 48 hours of arrival.
Unvaccinated minors will be allowed in with accompanying vaccinated adults.
“It’s been almost two years since we welcomed international visitors,” Fiji Minister for Tourism Hon. Faiyaz Koya said in a statement. “And in these two years, we’ve struggled, we’ve adapted, and we’ve prepared. Today, our national airline is ready, our hotels and tour providers are ready, and Fijians are ready to safely welcome the world back.”
