Here’s The Latest Update On The Fiji Travel Bubble:
Fiji Travel Bubble Fast Facts:
Visitors from Fiji’s "travel partner countries" can enter the country with "relaxed quarantine" requirements from 11 November, ahead of an official reopening date of 1 December when the first Fiji Airways tourist flights will recommence. How they get flights there is up to the airlines from the various travel partner countries.
Visitors must show proof of vaccination and test negative for COVID-19 72 hours prior to departure.
On arrival visitors must head straight to their pre-booked hotel where they will spend their first two days in the country – however travellers will have access to hotel amenities. Let’s call it "quarantine lite".
48 hours after arrival, travellers take a Rapid Diagnostic Test which if confirmed negative will grant free rein of "safe travel areas".
Fiji’s safe travel areas are still being determined, with the goal to provide protection for areas with lower vaccination rates.
Qantas and Jetstar have announced the return of direct flights from Sydney to Fiji from mid-December, with an initial schedule of over 3000 weekly seats and plans for more in 2022 if demand is strong.
Virgin Australia will bring forward the resumption of flights between Australia and Fiji from 23 December 2021 to 16 December 2021.
