People who have completed their 14-day quarantine in the containment area and are tested negative on their second test will be transferred from the quarantine facility to the lockdown border checkpoint in Nadi or Lautoka by the Republic of the Fiji Military Forces.

The Ministry of Health says these people will need to make arrangements for their pick-up at the border.

People who are in quarantine will also have to make sure they inquire with their hotel front desk about their pickup times at the end of their quarantine period.

The Ministry says they have also made arrangements for people travelling outside of Fiji on repatriation flights for their transfers from the main lockdown checkpoints on either side of the border to the Nadi International Airport.

They say all outbound passengers must have their COVID-19 swab results (e-copy is accepted) with them.

People travelling out of Fiji are advised to obtain a pass from the nearest Police Station, if they need to travel during curfew hours, by providing their travel itinerary and swabbing receipt from the Ministry of Health and Medical Services.

The Health Ministry says all passengers must present themselves at the lockdown checkpoint 4 hours before their flight departure and the RFMF will make arrangements for their transfer from the lockdown checkpoint to the Nadi International Airport.

For all passengers coming into the country, the approved quarantine transfer from the Nadi International Airport to their quarantine facility will still be provided.

Scheduled flights on Thursday 22 April 2021:

Flight Number: NZ953 STD: 2.30pm Time at Checkpoint: 10.30am

Flight Number: FJ1411 STD: 4.20pm Time at Checkpoint: 12.20pm

Flight Number: FJ1810 STD: 10pm Time at Checkpoint: 6pm
