The Care Fiji Commitment

Fiji has introduced the “Care Fiji Commitment”. Travelers can be assured that Fiji is a safe destination to enjoy on their next visit to the islands.

Tourism operators are working on 100% vaccination of all eligible staff. Fiji has installed an enhanced sanitation practices across all tourism businesses. Physical distancing is in practice.

Frontliners have undertaken a COVID-19 Safe training programme developed by the Ministry of Health and Medical Services and Tourism Fiji.

A Wellness Ambassador has been appointed to each business, in order to implement COVID-19 safe practices.

Blue lanes

If arriving by yatch, using the Blue Lane pathway, travelers need to engage Port Denarau yacht agents who will then apply on their behalf to the COVID-19 Risk Mitigation Taskforce (CRMT). Yachts may only enter Fiji at Port Denarau (after obtaining the necessary approvals). They will need to show proof of a negative RT-PCR test result. The sample must be collected for testing at most 72hrs (3 days) before departure for Fiji.
 
The number of quarantine days will be calculated by subtracting the number of uninterrupted sailing days from 14 days. Uninterrupted sailing days are days where the yacht has not stopped at any port nor been embarked by other persons, or where the persons on board have not disembarked. So, say they spend eight days alone at sea –– they will then be required to pay for six days of quarantine in Fiji, after which they can be cleared by a negative test result, also at their own cost.

What can we do to help Fiji?

The Fijian Government started the "Love Our Locals" campaign to boost bookings and keep Fijian at work during these difficult times. The Minister for Commerce, Trade, Tourism and Transport highlighted: 

“Love Our Locals conveys a spirit of community solidarity. Tourism employs thousands of people across our nation, both directly and indirectly, and we encourage everyone to show their support by booking a tour, grabbing a coffee with friends, or exploring other parts of our beautiful country.”

When travelling, consider buying more from street vendors who are likely to have been the worst hit, and if you can permit it - explore more of the 300+ islands of Fiji than you may have previously considered. You can learn more about Fiji's islands to help plan your trip on our dedicated Travel Tips pages.
