By November, Fiji has plans to reopen its borders

Published on : Monday, September 13, 2021

During the pandemic situation, a Pacific island getaway had went beyond the capacity for many Australians. However, that might get changed in just a few months.


In the middle of fighting COVID-19 outbreak, Fiji has recently declared its plan of reopening its international borders to tourists from November 1st.


By that time, the government of this South Pacific country expects to have got vaccinated completely with 80 per cent of its eligible population and hopes to welcome international visitors safely once again.


Tourism Fiji CEO Brent Hill explained that he was sure that the country could easily reach the vaccination targets in that particular time – however encouraged visitors to look for travel insurance if they were forced to quarantine in any case.
“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.


By now, Qantas, the Australian airline, has already started advertising December flights to Fiji and other “COVID-safe destinations”, expecting Australia will have opened its borders by then as well.


Qantas CEO Alan Joyce explained that he had been discussing with the federal government about flight resumption, and countries with “similar vaccination levels” of 70 to 80 per cent would be possible destinations.


“We think everything should be ready and certainly should … have a firm plan by the end of the year,” he said.
