Fiji Allows Entry Of Fully-Vaccinated Indians Without Quarantine

As Fiji islands reopen borders for Indian tourists, it has also lifted the quarantine requirements for fully vaccinated Indians. However, the entry requirements are still in place. To travel to the beautiful island of Fiji, you will need to provide a negative PCR test taken within two days before departure or a negative RAT test taken within 24 hours before departure.

Fiji Is Opening Borders For Fully-Vaccinated Foreign Travellers

Fiji has opened its borders for fully vaccinated foreign travellers. At a time when countries started imposing lockdown again, Fiji welcomed fully vaccinated tourists from ‘Travel Partner countries’, allowing them a quarantine-free holiday. Those vaccinated with AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson vaccines are allowed to enter the country.

New Zealand Also Plans To Reope Its Borders

New Zealand has planned to open its borders to international travellers in three phases from 2022. The first phase will be launched on January 16, 2022, which will allow New Zealand citizens and residents to travel from neighbouring Australia into the country. In the second phase from February 13, 2022, New Zealanders from the rest of the world will be permitted entry. From April 30, 2002, fully vaccinated travellers from all countries except those at ‘high risk’ will be allowed to enter New Zealand.
