Information for Foreign Students in Fiji Islands

Obtaining a Visa

Students' hall



Healthcare facilities in Fiji urban areas are adequate for routine medical problems. In the rural areas staff training is limited and there are often shortages of supplies and medications. Emergency response is extremely limited, and the few ambulances available are poorly equipped and staffed.


There are several international banks: Lloyds TSB, HSBC, Abbey, RBS and NatWest.


Embassy website:


Roaming agreements exist with many international mobile phone companies. There is no coverage on outlying islands, only on Viti Levu. International calls can only really be made from Viti Levu. Calls from hotels via an operator are very expensive. It is cheaper to get a public phonecard, available from post offices and newsagents or from the Fiji International Telecommunications (FINTEL) office.

Internet cafés are available in Suva, Nadi, Lautoka and most resorts. They are relatively inexpensive, however, Internet connectivity in Fiji isn't the best.
