visit fiji

Typical visitors come to Fiji for the following reasons:

Only those arriving for medical treatment or yacht owners/members of a crew of a carrier will need to apply for their permits before arriving in the country. Others will be given visitor permits on Immigration Clearance. This visitor permit will allow a visitor up to 4 months of stay. The stay can further be extended to 2 months if applying for extension and the fee is paid.

Visitors will need to present the following at Immigration clearance:

  • a valid foreign passport
  • return ticket to country of residence or citizenship
  • Visa Approval Letter from the Fjii Department of Immigration if the traveller is NOT a citizen of these visa-exempt countries
  • requisite fees ($F96) for travelers other than those arriving for medical treatment or yacht owners/members of a crew of a carrier. This is because those arriving for medical treatment or yacht owners/members of a crew of a carrier will have paid for their permits before arriving in the country.
  • Approval Letter from the Department of Immigration if permit was for medical treatment or yacht owners/members of a crew of a carrier
  • completed and signed Arrival Card
  • confirmed address in Fiji
  • proof of sufficient funds

Visitors transiting Fiji for another destination within 72 hours after entry into Fiji will need to apply for a transit visa before arriving in Fiji. Proof of approved visa and onward ticket for the next country of destination after Fiji is needed.
