FIJI will reopen its borders to welcome tourists and travelers by the end of the year.
The island-nation had initially planned to reopen its borders for tourists in December but the date could still be moved as Fiji continues its vaccination program.
According to the CEO of Tourism Fiji, Brent Hill, the country’s national tourism sector has no specific date yet for the reopening.
Hill said that travelers are now allowed to visit the country provided they are fully vaccinated or can show evidence of a negative result for COVID-19 RT-PCR test and must be from a country that is part of the nation’s “green list.”
According to the Minister for Commerce, Trade, Tourism, and Transport, Faiyaz Kova, the ministry is working on a possible reopening in November.
He added that Fiji will be a place for holiday destination as community transmission dwindles through collaborative efforts to make a safe environment for tourists and will not be a source of a new surge in their country.
