Why is this big news?

A lot many countries are still under quarantine and multiple COVID-19 test requirements. Considering such, Fiji’s relaxing of pandemic travel norms is refreshing as well as required. It also quashed mandatory quarantining for international travellers last month and made mask-wearing a choice. If you didn’t know about it, quick recap. In March, fully vaxxed travellers won’t to quarantine while holidaying. Talking before the Fijian parliament, announced Fiji’s Minister for Economy Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum. The existing travel partner system was also removed and the mandatory mask mandate at public spaces was made a matter of choice and sensibility. Recap over, you’re all up to speed.

The sum of these steps put Fiji at the forefront of countries who are bringing normalcy back to tourism. And we could not be happier.

Any nitty-gritties to this announcement?

Not really. For travellers over 12, the testing requirement remains. All eligible international travellers can book their COVID-19 RAT test via Entry Test Fiji. Proof of test booking must be shown at point of departure – that’s important! After landing, travellers are free to move around as much as they feel like. Your COVID-19 RAT test can be taken any time between landing in Fiji to under 72 hours. Pro Tip – Just get the test done as soon as (it takes all but two minutes), get the report and then concentrate on having a blast of a holiday.
