Dog Passport Fiji

Pets must enter Fiji by air from one of the following countries: Australia (except Northern Territory), New Zealand or Hawaii. If you wish to take your pet to Fiji from another country, you must export your pet to one of these countries, meet all of their requirements and apply to export them to Fiji.
