From today, the wearing of masks will be optional, all venues may operate at full capacity and social distancing requirements will no longer apply.

Minister for Economy, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says it is up to people to apply the more than two years of experience we have with COVID to do what makes them feel comfortable and safe.

While making the announcement during the 2021/2022 Revised Budget address,Sayed-Khaiyum also says from 7th April, 2022, incoming travellers have to provide a Rapid Antigen Test within 24 hours and the 3 nights hotel stay will be removed.

Sayed-Khaiyum says all visitors to Fiji will play by the same rules because from 7th April, the government will also do away with the Travel Partner system.

He says the most important thing is that visitors be vaccinated.

The Attorney General says if they are vaccinated, and if they test upon arrival, their country of origin is less important.

Meanwhile $700,000 has also been allocated for Tourism Fiji to bring back additional staff for 5 days a week.
