Types of passports
Fiji issues three types of passport:
- Ordinary Passport – Bright blue cover. Issued to ordinary citizens of Fiji. Valid for ten years.
- Diplomatic Passport – Scarlet red cover. Issued to the President and spouse, Prime Minister and spouse, government ministers and government officials working in diplomatic missions. Generally valid for ten years, but validity may be limited by term of appointment.
- Certificate of identity (CI) – May be issued to facilitate emergency travel, and can be issued to non-citizens. Generally valid for a single trip only.
All passport applications lodged within Fiji or its diplomatic missions are referred to the Passport Division in Suva for assessment and issue. Certificates of identity may be issued by Fijian diplomatic missions for emergency travel only.
In 2014, Fijian citizens had visa-free or visa on arrival access to 81 countries and territories, ranking the Fijian passport 52nd in the world according to the Visa Restrictions Index. As of April 2016, Fiji, Mauritius and Seychelles are the only countries whose citizens may travel without a visa to both Russia and China.
