Coronavirus (covid-19) information fiji
Latest information on Coronavirus (Covid-19) in Fiji.
On the 11 March, the World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak a Pandemic.
In response to the global spread of the virus and advice from the WHO, the Fijian Government has heightened its level of preparedness in anticipation of an outbreak.
The vaccine is a huge step towards normality for Fiji and its people with hopes that our international borders will open to visitors, restoring the livelihoods for thousands of Fijians, who are dependent on the tourism sector.
We don't yet know when this will happen, as it will be dependant on the vaccine rollout and how long this takes. The tourism industry should await Government decisions related to travel and easing of border restrictions.
Currently border restrictions are still in place for all travellers. Anyone who enters Fiji at the moment must undertake mandatory quarantine. The tourism industry should await Government decisions related to travel and easing of border restrictions.
- Note: Effective from midnight 22 April, all International passenger air travel into and out of Fiji for non-medical purposes are suspended for at least the next 14 days
We might see a shift towards being vaccinated as one of the requirements for international travel. Currently though, due to border closures, travel is restricted.
The tourism industry should await Government decisions related to travel and easing of border restrictions.
The Fiji Government, led by the Ministry of Health and Medical Services, is working closely with partners to access COVID-19 vaccines and ensure that our systems are ready to safely receive and distribute them.
Fiji has been allocated a total of 100,800 COVID-19 vaccines by the global COVAX facility and anticipates receiving further batches in the early part of 2021. Over the course of 2021, the Government expects to receive enough vaccines to vaccinate 20% of the population. The government continues to look at ways of sources more vaccines.
The target is to get all individuals above the age of 18 vaccinated.

WHAT IS THE CARE FIJI COMMITMENT?
Since the declaration of COVID-19 as a global pandemic, Fiji has made health and safety its top priority.
As of March 2020, the Fijian government has implemented effective measures to mitigate an outbreak in our islands, keep people safe and businesses running. These include the adoption of a contact-tracing application, border and quarantine protocols and public communications around social distancing and proper sanitation. Recent months have also seen the rollout of COVID-19 vaccinations, and these will continue throughout the year until all of Fiji’s eligible population is protected.
In support of the Fijian government’s COVID-19 initiatives, the Fijian tourism industry has also adopted the Care Fiji Commitment; a WHO-approved standard of best-practice health and safety measures designed to align our industry to safe travel norms in a post-COVID world.
In recognition of the Care Fiji Commitment program, the World Travel and Tourism Council recently declared Fiji as a ‘Safe Travels’ destination. You can be assured that when borders reopen, we will be ready to welcome you back!
