Stamped on Arrival
Fiji Immigration ensures the arrival (and departure) process is as pleasant as possible. In order to make entry into Fiji, you will need to have a valid passport for at least three months beyond your intended stay and a return ticket or onward travel ticket.
Your Visa may be extended on application to the Department of Immigration in Suva, Lautoka and Nadi. Those who are wishing to stay for more than six months should always consult the Department of Immigration.
People who wish to reside or work in Fiji on a temporary basis, are required to gain proper authority to apply for the visa before arrival. In some cases, employers are the ones who make the necessary arrangements to sponsor people. It is a must that visitors who intend to reside or work must have all the basic requirements to their immigration needs. Currently, is not easy to get a short-term work permit Visa, but there is considerable momentum to see that Fiji establishes similar work Visa programs like Australia and New Zealand in order to encourage more backpacking.
