Our Visa division is responsible for the processing and issuing of pre-entry visas to eligible persons who are national of countries enacted and categorized as Non-Visa Exempted countries. Visa is a pre entry authority issued to a non citizen passport holder from non visa exempted countries that authorizes the passport holder, to travel from his/her country or any destination country outside of Fiji to Fiji’s borders. A visa does not give automatic entry rights into Fiji for the holder.

All Visa applications are considered on merit and on a case by case basis. Visa may be granted to a non citizen if for visiting friends/families, for holiday, business purposes, transit purposes for more than three hours or for joining a vessel as crew or passenger. Visa may also be granted to a representative of a foreign government and his/her relative.

The visa applications can be directly lodged at any Fiji Immigration Department office located in Suva, Nadi, Lautoka, Savusavu, Levuka, Labasa and Rotuma or through the nearest Fiji High Commission and Embassy offices stationed abroad. Visa applications can also be lodged through faxing or posting addressing to the Visa Processing Officer.
