As part of the Fijian Government’s ongoing work to contain the global spread of the Coronavirus, Fiji’s borders will be closed to all foreign nationals who have been in mainland China within 14 days of their intended travel to Fiji.

The Immigration Department says that no passenger arrivals or transits will be permitted for those falling under these controls, effective immediately and until further notice.

There are no confirmed cases of the Coronavirus in Fiji at the moment.

Given the global spread of the virus, the government has decided on this measure of extreme precaution to mitigate the risk of an outbreak in Fiji.

They say that the Fijian Government is closely working with all international carriers to ensure that any travelers who fall under these restrictions are not permitted to board flights to Fiji.

They also say that measures to maintain a hygienic environment and screening ill passengers will continue to be taken in-flight to further minimize any risk.

The Immigration Department says that Fiji is closely monitoring the spread of the Coronavirus and is prepared to pursue more stringent courses of action if necessary.
