Money

Fiji’s official currency is the Fijian dollar, which breaks down into 100 cents. Major credit cards are widely accepted in tourist areas, but ATMs only accept some international cards. Banks and exchange bureaus found all over the islands can exchange currency and traveler’s checks.

Communications

Fiji’s international country code is 679. To call outside of the country, dial 00 followed by the appropriate country code. There are a few Internet cafes scattered around the islands, but the connection can be slow.

Tipping

Tipping isn’t a common practice in Fiji. Small tips for good service are always appreciated though.

Safety

The political and economic struggles in Fiji have increased the number of demonstrations and rallies in the country. Visitors should stay clear of these gatherings. Don’t wear expensive jewelry or carry large amounts of cash; the crime rate is high.

Health

Waterborne diseases like Leptospirosis, diarrhea, dysentery and typhoid are present in Fiji. Stick to bottled water and don’t swim with open cuts or walk barefoot where farm animals bathe. You don’t need any vaccinations to enter the country, but you’ll need to show a yellow fever vaccination certificate if you’ve stayed overnight in an infected area in the last 10 days. Between November and April dengue fever is a serious risk, so protect yourself by wearing long-sleeves and pants and using insect repellent.

Electricity

Fiji’s electrical current is 240 volts, 50Hz and uses flat, three-pinned plugs.
