If your country of origin is on the list, you do NOT require a visa. If your country of origin is not on the list, you require a visa.

A visa is a pre-entry authority issued to citizens of a non-visa-exempted country so that they might travel to Fiji’s borders. However, a visa does not grant the passport-holder automatic entry rights into Fiji.

All visa applications are considered on a case by case basis. 

However, travellers who do not need a visa still require the relevant permits, depending on the nature of their travel.
