Getting to Fiji

There are 2 main airport hubs in the Pacific, Fiji being one (and Hawaii being the other). Flights to Fiji come in the form of the main routes being, to/from North America, Australia and New Zealand.

If Fiji isn't your final destination (who doesn't like idyllic holidays!), visitors can stopover in Fiji on their way through. So if you're on a stopover or on your round-the-world ticket, make sure you stay at least a couple of nights.

However, I'm willing to bet you would want to stay longer!

It is also possible to enter Fiji by sea via a cruise to Fiji or by yacht, although not as common.


Entering Fiji

There are 2 International airports in Fiji, both on the main (and largest) island of Viti Levu. Most airline visitors will arrive at Nadi International Airport (NAN).

Nadi airport (Nan-di) is just 9km from the township of Nadi. This is quite handy as Nadi, on the north-west side of Viti Levu, is the hub to get to the popular island groups of Yasawa and Mamanucas.

You will be greeted with big smiles, friendly bula's, and of course the mandatory warm weather. A band might come around singing island music and welcome you by putting a flower necklace around your neck. The airport is relatively small so you'll be off to your designated transport in no time. Their security is also very relaxed as I once accidentally bypassed the luggage scanning machines without anyone noticing!

Visit the Fiji Tourist Information section for more including what to bring and what you need to enter Fiji.
