Travelers will need a repatriation pass to travel to Vanua Levu, health authorities say.
In a recent advisory, the Ministry of Health said travelers must apply and acquire their passes before purchasing their tickets to travel.
The passes will assist the ministry and relevant authorities to facilitate the oversight and testing logistics of the 7-day quarantine protocol in place for returnees to the North.
“This means that all repatriation travelers must be registered and issued with a Registration Reference Number for Domestic Repatriation. The registered applicants are those who have been registered for domestic repatriation on the toll-free number 163, MCTTT Facebook Page, or via email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
“All passes will be issued by MHMS through the Office of the Commissioners (Central and Eastern Divisions)”
Further inquiries on how to obtain a Repatriation Pass can be made on the toll-free number 158 COVID helpline, the contact number 3475190 which will be active from 8 am to 9 pm daily, or through the emails email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
