Tourism Fiji has recently launched the “Care Fiji Commitment” programme which is designed to reassure travelers that Fiji is a safe destination to visit on their next holiday.

Developed in consultation with stakeholders from the tourism industry, through the Tourism Recovery Team and endorsed by the COVID-19 Risk Mitigation Taskforce and Ministry of Health and Medical Services, the programme will play a significant role in Tourism Fiji’s market re-entry plans.

Since the declaration of COVID-19 as a global pandemic, Fiji has made health and safety its priority. Due to Fiji’s quick and effective response to COVID-19, Fiji has been able to contain the virus from a very early stage, and its effective containment measures meant Fiji was able to officially declare itself COVID-contained as of June, 2020.

The “Care Fiji Commitment” ensures an aligned communication platform for how Fiji communicates and demonstrates its health and safety credentials as well as COVID-19 management protocols to both local and international visitors.

Businesses are invited to join the programme, making a commitment to adopting the Fijian Government’s COVID-19 Safe Guidelines, through the nomination of a Wellness Ambassador who will complete a training programme, create an action plan and train tourism frontline workers on best practice COVID-19 mitigation. Upon completion, tourism businesses can then access the Care Fiji Commitment tools and resources that can be displayed at their businesses.

Through the Care Fiji Commitment, the following mitigation measures will be highlighted to potential travelers:

Border restrictions to protect Fiji, its people and its visitors

o Visitors from COVID-contained countries and territories can enter Fiji without quarantine

o Border restrictions for other travelers with 14-day mandatory quarantine
