Travel to Fiji now easier and cheaper as rapid tests replace PCRs

It is now simpler and cheaper to travel to quarantine free Fiji following an announcement that visitors over the age of 12 years now have the option to use a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) within 24 hours of scheduled departure as opposed to the more expensive PCR test, to enter Fiji.

Fiji has also announced the end of its nationwide curfew, for the first time since March 2020. In further good news, all vehicles, such as buses, vans and taxis can operate at full capacity, however, mask-wearing is still being enforced.

Businesses and venues that may be visited by tourists can now open at full capacity.

Tourism Fiji CEO Brent Hill said they are also working through a phasing out of the three-night stay with stakeholders and industry partners as more venues open up who can facilitate the 48-hour in-country RAT.

“This is another significant announcement for tourism in Fiji,” Hill said.

“It follows the already welcome recent changes such as RAT tests to return to Australia, reduced isolation protocols and nine new travel partner countries being added. We know last night’s decisions will make Fiji an even more attractive destination to travel to.”
