Fiji vaccinations: which ones do you need?

Have you booked a trip to Fiji? On this page we provide you with travel advice and information about possible health risks, the climate in Fiji and places of interest.  We recommend vaccinations for Fiji, although these are only mandatory when you enter the country from a country where yellow fever is prevalent. Which specific vaccinations you require is dependant on the duration of your stay in this archipelago.

The Republic of Fiji is made up of 332 islands in the Pacific Ocean. The islands are located east of Australia and between the archipelagos of Samoa and Vanuatu. The largest and best-known islands in this country in Oceania are Viti Levu and Vanua Levu. Fiji has a tropical climate and knows two main seasons: between November and May it is mostly warm and quite wet whereas from May onwards it is slightly cooler. This cooler season is the best time to travel to Fiji. The mountainous landscape of Fiji is characterised by tropical forests. Fiji is partly determined by the cultures of both the Polynesian and Melanesian population, but its culture is also influenced by India and Europe. The largely uninhabited islands are an ideal destination for sporty travellers such as scuba divers and snorkelers, but beach lovers will also enjoy themselves thanks to Fiji’s beautiful beaches and azure waters. The cities of Suva and Lautoka are well worth a visit.

Whichever way you spend your holiday in Fiji, always be aware of the risk of diseases. Malaria does not occur in Fiji. Our KLM Health Services experts can tell you exactly which vaccinations you require and provide advice on additional measures you can take for a pleasant stay.
