Fiji Eyes Opening Domestic as Jabs on Track

Fiji Fiji

Sixty percent of Fiji’s eligible population is fully vaccinated as of late last week.

This allows for a subsequent easing of internal border restrictions, a much-needed boost for domestic tourism and the path to an eventual reopening for international travellers. Fijian locals will be able to have domestic getaways from 4 October 2021.

Many tourism operators have been integral in supporting the vaccination roll-out, with over 100 properties now having fully vaccinated teams and approval by the Care Fiji Commitment Programme – a destination-wide Covid safety framework administered by Tourism Fiji.

Brent Hill, CEO of Tourism Fiji, has acknowledged the proactive support
of tourism operators in assisting front-liners, the Ministry of Health and Medical Services in vaccinating people in urban, rural and maritime areas.
