Fiji has returned to foreign tourism after a 20-month hiatus since the arrival of its first international flight.
On Wednesday (1st December), the South Pacific islands welcomed fully vaccinated travelers from “travel partner” countries, with the first flight from Sydney arriving at 11.25 a.m. with 300 passengers.
Despite the emergence of the novel Omicron form of the virus, Fiji, which has more than 90% of its indigenous people properly vaccinated against Covid-19, has decided to proceed with its reopening plans.
Tourism Fiji’s chief executive, Brent Hill, said: “It’s such an exciting day for Fiji and for our tourism industry. It’s been a long time coming.
“From airline to accommodation, Fiji tourism operators and related services have worked hard to ensure and uphold internationally benchmarked Covid-safety practices.
“The resumption of both domestic and international tourism is a credit to Fiji’s collective commitment for public safety, and safe and seamless travel, coupled with our famous Bula spirit.”
Travelers to Fiji must be fully vaccinated, with children under the age of 18 allowed to travel with a vaccinated adult, and must come from one of a number of travel partner nations, including the United Kingdom and Ireland. Those over the age of 12 must also have a negative PCR test result 72 hours before flying to the islands.
