With nearly all of its adult population (97%) having received their first COVID vaccination jab and 6 out of ten fully vaccinated, Fiji is well on its way to achieving its objective of reopening borders to quarantine free travel by 1st November.
Once 80% if its eligible population has been fully vaccinated Fiji will open its borders to visitors. Brent Hill, CEO of Tourism Fiji said “The key thing is, if you’ve got a really strong level of local vaccination, coupled with only accepting fully vaccinated travellers who test negative before they get on the plane, then you’re dramatically reducing the risk,” Mr Hill said.
“Everybody’s really keen to get things back up and running and started again, and Fiji is ready and waiting.”
