Fiji recently announced that it will be introducing ‘Care Fiji Commitment’ which will be a program dedicated to enhance health, safety, and hygiene protocols. As per the latest news reports, this program has been designed to ensure utmost safety of travellers to Fiji in a post COVID-19 world.
As of now, Fiji’s borders are closed for international travellers, however, introduction of such a program represents a destination-wide assurance that Fiji is gearing up to welcome travellers safely back to its shores.
Reportedly, Fiji officially declared it had managed to contain the spread of COVID-19 in June, 2020. Since the declaration of COVID 19 as a global pandemic, Fiji responded by adopting all the health and safety protocols that are required to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The island nation was able to contain the virus from a very early stage, thereby mitigating the risk of outbreak within the islands.
Further, the government’s effective containment measures that were put in place in March 2020 enabled Fiji to officially declare itself safe from COVID in June 2020. Now, with the introduction of the Care Fiji Commitment, travellers can be assured that Fiji is a safe destination to enjoy on their next vacation to the islands.
Referring to the program, Tourism Fiji Acting CEO, Robert Thompson said, “The Care Fiji Commitment is our assurance to travellers that the health and safety of everyone who lives and travels here remains our number one priority.” He further added that now, with this added layer of confidence in place, Fiji will likely become an ideal post-pandemic destination, one that is and has remained COVID-19 safe, has a wide variety of islands to choose from, allows natural social distancing, offers mostly boutique resorts with under 50 rooms total, and is known for its wide-open beaches and expansive rainforests.
The program has already been welcomed by move than 200 of the islands’ resorts, restaurants, tour operators, attractions and more.
