The Ministry of Health and Medical Service (MOHMS) advises that people travelling out of Fiji and foreigners coming into the country can now have COVID-19 swab tests done upon request.

People travelling out of the country will have to apply for a COVID-19 swab test. Approval will be through the Office of the Permanent Secretary for Health and Medical Services.

These travellers will have to produce their travel itinerary and the biodata page of their passport to confirm they will be travelling before the test approval is granted.

As per the recent Government Gazette, the cost of the test is FJ$300.00, payable after approval is granted. This will be applied only in certain circumstances, for example, for non-citizens entering the country, as well as people who want to travel overseas but need to be tested as a requirement for entry into other countries.


Fees can be paid at the following locations:

  • Central – Cashier at MOHMS Headquarters (Level 1, Dinem House, 88 Amy Street, Toorak)
  • Western – Cashier at Lautoka Hospital
  • Northern – Cashier at Labasa Hospital


All approved applicants who have paid the fees will then be required to go to any one of the following facilities to have their swabs taken:

  • Suva Health Office, Namosi House
  • Nadi Hospital
  • Lautoka Hospital
  • Labasa Hospital


The swabs will then be sent to the Fiji Centre for Communicable Diseases for testing. Test results will be provided within 48 hours after the swabbing.

The Ministry further advises that COVID tests conducted in Fiji for medical purposes are completely free: for returning citizens in quarantine; for Fijians who meet our medical testing criteria, such as those displaying COVID-like symptoms; and for our healthcare staff.
