Bula – welcome to Fiji

Fiji is reopening to tourists today with four plane loads of approximately 800 people expected over the first 24 hours of the country reopening its borders to international tourists.

Welcome Home to Fiji which is ‘Open For Happiness’. That is the message Tourism Fiji and its stakeholders are selling to holiday makers in its Travel Partner Countries.

There are four flights into Fiji, 2 from Sydney, one in the morning and the other in the afternoon. A flight from Melbourne will arrive get in just after midnight and a large flight from Los Angeles early on December 2.

Despite fears the new Covid-19 variant Omicron has spread into the community in New South Wales where the first flight of tourists come from, Fiji said it is ready to receive visitors.

Visitors are being treated to a water salute and traditional ceremonies of welcome befitting honoured guests.

Meanwhile over 800 tourism operators in the country have completed Tourism Fiji’s Care Fiji Commitment programme (CFC).

The CFC ensures all services which tourists may encounter are fully compliant and well trained.
