Information for inbound and outbound passenger transfers during lockdown of Nadi and Lautoka Area

The Ministry of Health and Medical Services advises the travelling public of travelling arrangements for all inbound and outbound passengers arriving and departing on repatriation flights.

This follows the announcement of the lockdown of the greater Nadi and Lautoka area due to the high risk of the transmission of the COVID 19 virus.

These arrangements are being made for the safety of all members of the travelling public and all residents of Fiji.

OUTBOUND PASSENGERS ON REPATRIATION FLIGHTS

Arrangements have been made for all outbound passengers travelling on repatriation flights for transfers from the main checkpoints on either side (Nadi and Lautoka) of the border to Nadi International Airport. All outbound passengers must have COVID 19 swab results (e-copy is accepted) with them.

Outbound passengers 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.

All passengers will be advised to present themselves at the lockdown checkpoint 4 hours prior to the flight departure. The Republic of Fiji Military Forces will make arrangements for the transfer of outbound passengers from the lockdown checkpoint to the Nadi International Airport.
