Two hundred and eighty-eight Solomon Island students will be repatriated to Honiara today and tomorrow.

These are graduating Solomon Islands students from the University of South Pacific (USP).

They were packed at the Nadi International Airport terminal this morning. They are expected to return home on Solomon Airlines.

Like countries around the world, the students will serve their mandatory quarantine period upon arrival before being released to be reunited with their families.
