Fiji Shut Borders To Foreign Nationals Coming From China
The number of coronavirus cases continue to rise daily in China.

As part of the Fijian Government’s ongoing work to contain the global spread of the coronavirus, Fiji’s borders will be closed to all foreign nationals who have been in mainland China within 14 days of their intended travel to Fiji.

Similar to newly-instituted policies in Singapore, Australia and New Zealand, no passenger arrivals or transits will be permitted for those falling under these controls, effective immediately and until further notice.

 As of 2 February 2020, there are no confirmed cases of the coronavirus in Fiji. Given the global spread of the virus, the government has decided on this measure of extreme precaution in the interest of mitigating the risk of an outbreak of the coronavirus in Fiji.

 Government is working closely with all international carriers to ensure that any travellers who fall under these restrictions are not permitted to board flights to Fiji at their international departure location. Earlier-announced precautionary measures to maintain a hygienic environment and screen ill passengers will continue to be taken in-flight to further minimise any risk.

 Fiji is closely monitoring the spread of the coronavirus and is prepared to pursue more stringent courses of action if deemed necessary.
