Australian actress Rebel Wilson stars in a new campaign for Tourism Fiji as the country opened for quarantine-free travel for fully-vaccinated Aussies from December 2021.

Fiji is ready to welcome back visitors with open arms to its 333 islands, white sand beaches, and year-round tropical warmth.

Once you arrive, you can holiday safely and enjoy the best of Fiji knowing that when sticking to Care Fiji* Committed businesses, everyone you interact with will be fully vaccinated.

Bringing the concept of ‘Open for Happiness’ to life, Rebel Wilson features in Tourism Fiji’s campaign that sees the actress escape the hustle and bustle of Hollywood life to glamorously wash up on Fiji’s pristine shores. Welcomed with a friendly Bula (Fijian for hello), she then embarks on an adventure to experience all that the idyllic islands have to offer.

The perfect destination if you’re looking for a romantic getaway, an adventure-packed escape, or you just want to lie on the beach and drink from a coconut, you’ll find it in Fiji – and Fiji can’t wait to have you back.

Growing up in Australia, Rebel has very fond memories of visiting Fiji as a child, so was delighted to return as an adult to shoot the ‘Open for Happiness’ campaign.

Rebel Wilson says: “When someone asks you whether you want to visit Fiji – there is really only one answer isn’t there? It’s one of the most beautiful places in the world, there really is nothing like the white sand and clear waters of Fiji. It is truly breathtaking But even more than the landscape, I love Fiji the most for its people. Everyone greets you with a smile and a ‘bula’, the warmth and hospitality of everyone I met is something I will always remember.  Fiji truly is open for happiness.”

Tourism Fiji CEO, Brent Hill says: “What a pleasure it was working with someone so talented, and who truly embraced everything Fiji is about – from our natural beauty to our people and our local musicians, producers, and talent. Fiji is truly Open for Happiness, and this was such a special campaign for us to make, in Fiji. We are thrilled to once again finally be able to welcome our visitors back from around the globe to the shores of Fiji – it has been a long time coming.

“Safety has of course been paramount as we have been planning Fiji’s re-opening, so we have a number of systems in place that aim to protect both visitors and our community. Welcome home to Fiji!”

To ensure your safety and the safety of the Fijian community, a negative PCR test is required by visitors within 72 hours of departure, alongside a mandatory Rapid COVID-19 test at your Care Fiji Commitment (CFC) resort 48 hours after your arrival in our islands. When booking your holiday, look for the CFC logo.

*About the Care Fiji Commitment
Apart from the required tests and documents needed to board their flights, all travellers to Fiji must have an minimum 3 night accommodation booking at a Care Fiji Commitment certified property (eg your resort, boat, island or hotel), and will also be required to undertake a mandatory Rapid COVID-19 diagnostic test 48 hours after their arrival at their hotel, activate the careFIJI contact tracing app and avoid travel to communities in low vaccination areas.

During these first 48 hours, you are certainly free to enjoy Fiji – we only ask that you use Care Fiji Commitment operators and tourism experiences, check in using QR codes and provide proof of vaccination to stay as safe as possible.
