Medical Services
Fiji is free of most tropical diseases - there is no malaria or yellow fever in the country. Government-owned hospitals are located at urban centres throughout the country and private specialist medical consultation is also available (surgery hours are usually between 8.30am-5pm). Suva’s Colonial War Memorial Hospital is Fiji’s largest hospital. There is a minimal hospital charge for patients who are not citizens of Fiji but the charges remain modest. Hotels and resorts often have a qualified nurse on the premises and a doctor on call. Chemists are open during normal shopping hours. For emergencies, dial 911 for Crime Stoppers, dial 919 (toll free) and ask for assistants.

Attire
Loose, easy wearing pieces suit Fiji’s tropical climate best. Bula shirts (aka Aloha shirts) are popular on the cocktail/convention circuit. Certain high-end restaurants and clubs place restrictions on attire, especially for men, in which case long pants, shirts and shoes are more appropriate than casual shorts, T-shirts and beach sandals. Cover up when visiting towns and villages as swimwear is best kept to beaches and resorts.
 
 
Etiquette
A visit to a Fijian village is one of the cultural highlights of holidaying in Fiji. Be careful to follow protocol when visiting a village. It is best to dress modestly - swimwear, caps and hats are normally not worn inside a village.
If you experience a sevusevu (traditional ceremony of welcome) you will be offered kava to drink. Accept graciously, clap three times with cupped hands before and after drinking the kava. Refrain from entering houses unless invited, in which case take your shoes off before entering. Once inside, keep your voice down and sit cross-legged on the floor. When visiting a Hindu temple or a Muslim mosque, you are also required to remove your shoes before entering.
 
 
Driving Licence
A valid home country driving licence is required for the same class of vehicle. Driving is on the left side of the road and seatbelts are compulsory.
Maximum speed limit in villages and urban areas is 50 km/h (30 mph) and 80 km/h (50mph) on the highway, unless otherwise posted.
