Fiji removes Covid-19 post-arrival tests as entry requirement, Prayagraj airport will soon be made into an international airport and more in top news of the day.
Effective from Monday, September 6, international travelers are no longer required to take a COVID-19 test upon arrival to Fiji. Subsequently, no test results or proof of test bookings will be required to board flights to Fiji and the Entry Test Fiji portal used to pre-book tests will be discontinued. Furthermore, Fiji has reduced the mandatory isolation period for those who test positive from seven days to five days. Although mandated post-arrival testing has been lifted, testing will be required for anyone who develops COVID-19 symptoms, which individuals arriving to Fiji will be asked to self-report on an immigration arrival card.
Reducing the isolation period from seven days to five days is also expected to assist Fiji’s tourism industry. With hotels reporting occupancy at pre-COVID levels, they will now be able to free up inventory saved for isolation and allow even more bookings. The requirements of being fully vaccinated and purchasing travel insurance still remain until further notice.
