Minister for Tourism Faiyaz Koya says in December alone, Fiji welcomed about 36,000 visitors from Travel Partner Countries.

He says most of these tourists were either from Australia or the United States.

While speaking during a ministerial briefing this afternoon, Koya says in January 2022, our visitor numbers remain strong and we continue to receive on average 1,200 visitors per day.

Koya further says they are estimating that by the end of January, Fiji will receive another 35,000 visitors.

He highlighted that traditionally, February is our lowest month in the tourism season and early indications from the airline forward bookings show that in February, they expect up to 15,000 visitors, in March they expect up to 20,000 visitors and, in April they expect up to 30,000 visitors.

Koya further says they know how this virus works and they know that the only way to sustain the industry is to ensure health remains paramount.

He also says the COVID-19 Risk Mitigation Taskforce continues to monitor our Travel Partner Countries – and where necessary – escalating risk mitigation measures.
