In a bit of welcome news for travelers, the tropical paradise of Fiji has announced that as of February 14, 2023, all restrictions related to COVID-19 have ended. Visitors are welcome to travel to any of Fiji’s 333 islands with zero COVID-19 protocols. No proof of vaccination is required, no negative COVID test is required, and insurance is now optional. 

After slowly reopening during the height of the pandemic, Fiji initially instituted mandatory requirements for proof of full COVID-19 vaccination, a negative COVID-19 test, and proof of insurance covering COVID-19 for all visitors. The testing requirement was dropped in May of last year, but the other requirements remained in place until this month. However, these requirements have now ended, and travelers arriving via land or sea can now visit Fiji just as easily as before the pandemic. 

Why Have Fiji Entry Restrictions Ended?

It comes down to vaccination rates. Currently, 93% of the adult population of Fiji is fully vaccinated against COVID-19, and hospitalizations have remained low as a result. And due to the high rates of vaccination, most who do become infected with the virus experience mild to moderate symptoms at worst. Therefore, officials in Fiji have determined that it’s time to begin letting tourists back in with no restrictions.

According to Brent Hill, who is Chief Executive of Tourism Fiji, “The industry welcomes the decision to remove all protocols, restrictions, vaccination requirements, and Covid-19 tests – and invites the world to come and experience Fiji: where happiness comes naturally.”

Fiji Travel Insurance is Still Recommended

While it is true that the insurance requirement for Fiji has ended, the government still recommends proper coverage.

There are numerous reasons to still purchase travel medical insurance if you’re visiting Fiji, because there are numerous ways you can become sick or injured. Even if COVID-19 is less of a concern now, you can still suffer a broken bone, stomach illness, flu, or a serious medical condition that requires emergency medical evacuation. In order to ensure that a health issue abroad doesn’t negatively impact your bank account, purchase travel medical insurance so you can get care for a price you can afford.

If you’re mostly concerned with protecting your prepaid, nonrefundable trip costs such as airfare and hotel reservations, get Fiji travel insurance. If your trip is cancelled, interrupted, or delayed for a covered reason, a travel insurance plan can help minimize the financial fallout.
