Entry requirements

This page reflects the UK government’s understanding of current rules for people travelling on a full ‘British Citizen’ passport, for the most common types of travel.

The authorities in Fiji set and enforce entry rules. For further information contact the embassy, high commission or consulate of the country or territory you’re travelling to. You should also consider checking with your transport provider or travel company to make sure your passport and other travel documents meet their requirements.

Entry rules in response to coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Fiji government has announced changes to International travel due to COVID-19. The Fiji border remains closed to British tourists. Only residents and Fijian citizens are allowed to return to Fiji.

Fiji is also not allowing any transiting passengers through it from any other country.

Ahead of travel, returning residents and non-Fiji citizens must request approval from the Office of the Prime Minister for entry (by air or sea) into Fiji. Contact the Office of the Prime Minister by email: borderrequest@immi.gov.fj. Further information can be found on the Fiji government website.

All foreign nationals who are currently stranded in Fiji have been advised to contact Fiji Immigration Office so that they could be properly guided to maintain their legal status. This applies to all categories of permit holders.

These restrictions supersede the regular entry requirements set out below which refer to Fiji’s requirements that existed before the border was closed.

Regular entry requirements

Visas

Visas are not needed for visits of up to 4 months. You must have an onward or return ticket and a valid visa for the next country you’re travelling to. If you’re visiting Fiji on business you will be granted a stay for 14 days on arrival.

If you plan to stay for longer than 4 months, you will need to apply for a visa from the Fiji High Commission in London.

Yachts can only enter Fiji through Suva, Lautoka, Savusavu and Levuka For other ports, such as Nadi/Denarau, prior arrangement with the Fijian Authorities is needed.

Passport validity

Your passport should have at least 6 months’ validity remaining on your date of entry into Fiji.

UK Emergency Travel Documents

UK Emergency Travel Documents are valid for entry, airside transit and exit from Fiji.

Yellow fever certificate requirements

Check whether you need a yellow fever certificate by visiting the National Travel Health Network and Centre’s TravelHealthPro website.

Customs requirements

Fiji customs enforce strict quarantine regulations and x-ray all in-bound luggage at Nadi airport. Most perishable foodstuffs will be confiscated on arrival, unless arriving from a country with quarantine agreements with Fiji.

You must declare currency amounts in excess of FJ$10,000.

Travelling with children

Some countries need documentary evidence of parental responsibility before allowing lone parents to enter the country or, in some cases, before permitting the children to leave the country.

In the case of Fiji, no such documentation is needed for visitors. But it is needed for those applying for work and/or residency permits. For further information contact the Fiji High Commission in London.
