Fiji Travel Requirements (AUS)

Image taken at Vomo, Fiji by Leanne Owen.

Recently I have been inundated with questions regarding Fiji Travel Requirements. I thought I'd create a blog post with all of the information in the one place.

*This information is current and up to date as of 27th May 2022*

** Travel requirements are subject to change without notice. It is the responsibility of the traveller to ensure they have the most up to date information before travelling**

***I recommend arriving at the Airport a minimum of 3 hours prior to your scheduled departure time, don't forget to pack and wear masks***

 

So, what do you need to travel to Fiji???

PRIOR TO DEPARTURE

1. From 11.59pm AEST on 17th April 2022, you'll no longer need an exemption to leave Australia if you don't meet the definition of fully vaccinated. When exiting Australia, you must provide proof of vaccination status if requested by an official. If you can't be vaccinated for medical reasons, you'll need to provide proof of medical contraindication.

The Australian Government recommends passengers departing Australia be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and travel with proof of vaccination status documentation. 

Please be aware that all travellers aged 16 and above are required to show proof of full vaccination to enter Fiji. If required, you can apply for a special exemption to enter Fiji at: covidexemption@gmail.com

You will need to show your International vaccination certificate. Instructions on how to download your certificate here: 
https://www.servicesaustralia.gov.au/international-covid-19-vaccination-certificate-proof-your-covid-19-vaccinations?context=60091#a1


Please ensure names on vaccination certificates match your passports.

Fiji recognises the following vaccines only: AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, Nuvaxovid (Novavax), Coronavac (Sinovac), Covishield, BBIBP-CorV (Sinopharm), Covaxin and Sputnik V.

A 14-day waiting period prior to travel following full vaccination applies.

Please note, your transport provider can refuse to allow you on board if you're showing symptoms of covid-19, if you don't meet their vaccination requirements or if you don't meet the requirements of the destination.

2. Pre-departure covid tests are no longer required, however if you have tested positive within 30 days of your travel to Fiji and have recovered, you will need to provide proof of your isolation period served by a credible institution OR a fit to fly certificate/letter from a medical practitioner.  The certificate/letter will exempt you from in-country testing requirements.

An acceptable fit to fly certificate or letter from your medical practitioner should be typed and on an official letterhead. It should also include the following information: date of onset of symptoms, date tested positive, date of cessation of symptoms, release date from isolation.

If you are flying with Qantas, you will need to request a past positive medical clearance in advance, see here: https://www.qantas.com/au/en/coronavirus/vaccination-exemptions-medical-clearance.html

If you are flying with Jetstar, you will need to request a past positive medical clearance in advance, see here: https://www.jetstar.com/au/en/help/articles/covid-19-vaccination-exemptions-and-past-positive-medical-clearance#Past-positive-medical-clearances

3. Pre-booked/pre-paid in country RAT test for all travellers 12 years and above to be taken anytime within 72 hours of arrival in Fiji. This must be booked through the new portal here: https://www.entrytestfiji.gov.fj

*Please check your spam/junk folder for email confirmation after making your booking.

You will not be allowed to board any flight without proof of this booking. 

4. Travel Insurance Certificate showing unlimited medical coverage.
