“Thereafter, no test results or proof of test booking will be required to board flights to Fiji and the Entry Test Fiji portal used to pre-book tests will be discontinued,” Tourism Fiji said.

The destination has also shortened the mandatory isolation period for visitors who test positive from seven to five days.

COVID-19 testing will still be mandatory for people with symptoms of COVID-19; arriving visitors will be required to report their symptoms on immigration forms upon arrival.

Travelers will also need to be fully vaccinated and have travel insurance.

“This is another exciting step towards tourism normalcy in Fiji,” said Brent Hill, CEO of Tourism Fiji.

“We welcomed a record number of visitors in July, which showed an 82% recovery from pre-pandemic levels.

“Now, with the removal of mandatory testing in the country, travelers can continue to enjoy our islands with even more peace of mind.”

Permanent Secretary for Tourism Shaheen Ali added: “Our approach to safety is exemplary – we can see this in the growing tourism demand and low tourist positivity.

“Removing all testing requirements and reducing the period of isolation further fuels our economic recovery and eases barriers to travel.”
