What We Are Doing for the Health and Safety of Our Guests
As of December 1, 2021, Fiji is open to quarantine-free travel coming from certain travel partner countries.
We are thrilled to welcome you back and want to make traveling as easy as possible for you!
Please find some of Fiji’s required travel guidelines below — and you’ll also learn what we are doing at Namale to ensure you have a safe, comfortable and relaxing visit.
The Care Fiji Commitment
Fiji is recognized as a “Safe Travels” destination by the World Travel and Tourism Council thanks to The Care Fiji Commitment (CFC) — a World Health Organization-approved standard of best-practice health and safety measures for travel.

Namale is proud to be recognized as a Care Fiji Commitment-certified resort and 100% of our staff are fully vaccinated.
Before Your Visit
All travelers to Namale must meet Fiji’s travel requirements, including:
• Travelers over age 16 must show proof of vaccination (Astra-Zeneca, Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson) 14 days prior to leaving their home country
• Medical travel insurance, with international coverage that covers COVID-19
• Passport valid for a minimum of 6 months beyond your return date
When you arrive in Fiji, you will go through Fiji Immigration and Customs. Namale guests must transfer at the airport directly to the Domestic Travel Terminal and Fiji Link Airlines. Once there, you will check-in and board your flight to Savusavu on the island of Vanua Levu where Namale is located.
Upon arrival at the Savusavu airport, you will be greeted by one of our Namale staff who will take care of your luggage and escort you to one of our resort vehicles for the 10-minute ride to the Namale Resort. All Namale guest transportation vehicles are CFC-certified.
Some travelers may need to take a COVID test before re-entering their country and test negative.
The type of test required is determined by the country you are returning to:
For countries requiring PCR tests
PCR tests must be administered 96 hours before your scheduled international departure flight.
For countries requiring a rapid test only
Rapid tests must be administered 24 hours before your scheduled international departure flight.
Namale can facilitate testing at the property.
A negative test allows you to travel home as planned.
Testing positive at Namale
Your 5-day quarantine must be completed in rooms set aside for you at our sister property, Wasawasa Lodge.
Testing positive in Nadi
The Ministry of Health will transport you from the testing facility to a Fiji government-designated hotel. The testing facility and airport staff will assist you with these arrangements.
Other Departure Considerations
All quarantine costs including accommodations, meals, testing and other expenses are the responsibility of the traveler.
Be sure to review your specific country’s re-entry requirements before your trip so you are prepared for testing.
If you contract COVID-19 during your stay in Fiji and test positive, you will need to extend your stay by 5 days at your expense.

At Namale, your health and safety are our top priority.
Our staff is fully trained in COVID-19 protocols, and we have implemented additional safety measures so you don’t have to worry during your visit.
