Fiji included in the United Kingdom's quarantine free list for arrivals

Fiji has been included in the United Kingdom's quarantine free list for arrivals.

This means people travelling from Fiji will not have to quarantine on arrival in England unless they have travelled through a place that is not exempted.

The UK government has issued a list of 59 destinations whose travellers are exempted from quarantine on arrival.

It includes many popular holiday spots – which now pose “a reduced risk” from coronavirus.

This list will come into effect from 10th July.

Apart from Fiji, the other countries in the region that are included are Australia, New Zealand, French Polynesia, New Caledonia.

The 14 British Overseas Territories are also exempt.

Passengers will still be required to provide contact information on arrival in England.

Travellers leaving England could still face restrictions – including quarantine – when they arrive in one of the exempted countries.

Fiji like many countries on the list has barred almost all foreign travellers from visiting and still require 14 days quarantine on arrival.
