Do you need a visa for Fiji?
You may need a visa to visit Fiji depending on your nationality. Foreign nationals from over 100 countries – including Australia, New Zealand, the United States, the EU and the United Kingdom – can enter Fiji visa-free for up to four months. Border officials will stamp your passport on arrival. This doesn’t mean there are no entry requirements though, as all travellers will need to provide confirmation of an onward travel ticket and a copy of your hotel or tour booking (among other entry requirements which we’ll get to shortly).
You can see the list of exempt countries on the Fijian Immigration Department's website. Foreign nationals from non-exempt countries will need to apply for a visa prior to travel.
Applying for a Fiji tourist visa
There are two tourist visas for Fiji:
Single entry visa (approx. $91) – grants single entry for stays of up to three months
Multiple entry visa (approx. $180) – grants multiple entries valid up to 12 months, with each stay not exceeding four months
How to apply
- Download an application form from the Fiji Immigration Department's website
- Gather the relevant documents listed in this checklist
- Lodge your application directly through your nearest Fiji High Commission or Embassy.
Applications are usually processed within a couple of weeks, but it’s best to give yourself plenty of time in case there are any delays.
Fiji entry requirements
Regardless of whether or not you need a visa, all travellers entering Fiji must hold:
a passport valid for at least six months beyond the planned period of stay
at least one blank passport page
evidence of onward travel (e.g. a return flight ticket)
a document to show the purpose of your visit (e.g. a booking confirmation of your tour)
sufficient funds for the duration of your trip
a visa for your onward travel destination (if applicable)
Visa and entry requirements can change anytime, so we recommend all travellers check with their local consulate or embassy as this information may change.
