Vanua Levu travel opens for fully vaccinated Fijians
October 10, 2021 4:47 pm
Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has announced that fully vaccinated Fijians can now travel to Vanua Levu.
Bainimarama says many people have been forced to stay away from home due to our need to prevent the virus from traveling from one island to another.
However, fully vaccinated Fijians can now travel by boat or air with transport companies that are COVID safe compliant – such as Fiji Link.
“Travellers must register a negative COVID-19 test result on Rapid COVID-19 test before travel. Upon arrival, they must immediately enter home quarantine for a period of seven days, but they will be home with family at last.”
Travel to the other islands including the outer islands will still be maintained under the current protocols.
Bainimarama says the easing of restrictions will be implemented once there are increased rates of vaccination.
He is urging all those on the islands to get fully vaccinated as soon as possible.
“We plan to drop any quarantine requirement for inter-island travel once Fijians in Vanua Levu and other islands are fully vaccinated. From 11 November, we will open regular inter-island travel – if and only if vaccination rates continue to steadily rise in the Northern Division and the Maritime Islands”.
Bainimarama adds they have no choice but to keep some of the measures in place for now.
