Fiji officially the Republic of Fiji, an island country in Melanesia, has finally dropped the requirement of post-arrival Covid-19 tests for international travellers.

Fiji’s health system has continued to provide community-wide protection through a widespread immunisation campaign over the last six weeks, resulting in a consistent decrease in COVID-19 cases.

Fiji can relax more of our public health measures because of its high levels of community-wide vaccine protection, expansion of vaccination coverage to children, increasing uptake of booster doses, and decreasing caseload.

Fiji has removed the requirement for post-arrival testing for international visitors as of September 5, 2022. To board flights to Fiji, no test results or proof of test bookings will be required.

Although mandatory post-arrival COVID-19 testing will be discontinued, testing will still be required for anyone who develops COVID-19 symptoms, which individuals arriving in Fiji will be required to self-report on a single immigration arrival card.

Those who test positive will now be required to isolate for at least five days, rather than the previous seven days.

Additionally, any individuals in isolation who still display COVID-19 symptoms after five days will also be required to complete the full seven days.

Individuals in isolation who still exhibit COVID-19 symptoms after five days will be required to complete the entire seven-day period.

This decision to eliminate post-arrival testing requirements follows similar steps taken by Australia, the United States, the United Kingdom, and European countries such as Germany. These modifications are expected to boost Fiji’s economic recovery and streamline airport operations.
