Attorney General and Minister for Communications, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says they have engaged a German company to start work on vaccine passports and it will be a document that will be required.
$2 million has been allocated for vaccine passports in the 2021/2022 National Budget.
He says this vaccine passport will be able to authenticate as to when a person has got the first and second jabs.
Sayed-Khaiyum says they will also be able to present this to other countries that would consider sending their citizens to Fiji for holidays.
He says these countries will need some form of authentication that the staff working in Fijian hotels have been vaccinated and the destination is safe for holidays.
