Travel Warning: Fiji







Contributed By RealAdventures

September 19, 2000

On September 15, 2000 an improvised explosive devise was found and disarmed at a popular hotel frequented by foreign travelers in Suva. This location is in the general vicinity of the complex where the trial of George Speight and other participants in the May 19 seizure of Parliament is being held. Three improvised explosive devises exploded in Suva in August 1999. American citizens traveling to Fiji should exercise caution, be alert to suspicious or unclaimed packages, keep a low profile and avoid large crowds and potential demonstration sites.

The new military-backed Government of Fiji has taken significant steps to restore order following the recent political crisis and associated civil unrest. However, sporadic incidents continue, and Americans are urged to maintain a high level of caution and security awareness. Travel to rural areas of the islands of Vanua Levu and Viti Levu should be avoided, particularly at night.

A military imposed curfew remains in effect in Suva. Military checkpoints are being maintained throughout the country.

Currently, all roads are open. International flights at Nadi Airport are operating normally, as are flights to other parts of Fiji. However, the possibility of disruption remains. Travelers are strongly urged to contact airlines for details and to verify flight schedules.

U.S. citizens in Fiji are urged to register with the U.S. Embassy if they have not already done so. U.S. citizens in Fiji should exercise a high level of caution and closely monitor local radio and television for new developments. American citizens in Fiji with emergencies or requiring updated security information may contact the U.S. Embassy by telephone at (679) 314-466.

For general information on travel to Fiji, please consult the Department of State's latest Consular Information Sheet for Fiji, available on the Internet at http://travel.state.gov.
